Contests worth doing

Saw this guide and thought of you all :). What do you think of this list? Are these the places you're submitting to? If not, why not and where are you looking instead.

Jean-Pierre Chapoteau

I'm going to enter the Nicholl, Austin and Scriptapalooza this year.

Eboni Dunbar

Thanks Lisa! I definitely here you. That's why I was asking about people's experiences with competitions and what criteria they look for when choosing a competition. I did Nicholl's last year on a whim (knowing I wasn't likely to place) and want to consider being more strategic this time around. Jean-Pierre: Awesome! Why'd you decide those over anything else? Brand name or other factors? :) Thanks to both of you for responding!

Stacy Gentile

Nicholl, Austin, 32, Script Pipeline and Final Draft (whenever that one is)

Jean-Pierre Chapoteau

Nicholl, because it's Nicholl. I actually thought Bluecat and Page were over Austin. Very shocked at that, but since Blucat is closed I'll go with Austin. And it's cheaper than most. And I placed in Scriptapalooza with my teleplay and my friend almost won it with his feature, so it's always been on my good guy list.

Hal Russek

Any thoughts on Slamdance?
