“I owe the PAGE Awards a huge debt of gratitude! The Judges of the contest really are actual industry professionals and it got me loads of exposure. Two of the Judges have optioned my Gold Prize-winning script and have been shopping it around. I’ve also been signed as a client by PAGE Judge Joe Riley of Eyes on the Road Management. Joe is great… I’ve had meetings with production companies, sit-downs with development execs, and pitch sessions with producers. He’s really getting me and my work out there and it’s an amazing feeling. I feel like I’m right on the precipice!”

“Since the time Air and Space gained recognition from the PAGE Awards, I’ve optioned it to a producer in Hollywood. The script is going through development and I’m psyched with how it is looking these days. On a personal note, the award was a real validation for me. The script sat on the shelf for five years and I hadn’t really shown it to anyone until I decided to submit it to the contest. As you might imagine, I’m glad I did.”

“On the strength of my winning script Mindbender, I gained a place on a mentoring scheme backed by the UK Film Council and Working Title Films. A development executive at Working Title read my script and recommended me to Matt Connell at Berlin Associates, who offered me representation. My success in the 2008 PAGE Awards and the generosity and encouragement of the organizers really helped to give me the confidence to send my script to people in the industry, and PAGE continues to support me two years later!”

“I’ve now signed with Leslie Rabb of RPM International, and I definitely have your competition to thank for this big break. Because of PAGE, my script got to Leslie and she liked it enough to consider some of my other work. She liked two other things I’ve written and decided to take me on as a client. As a writer based in Norfolk, VA, it feels great to have someone representing me in Los Angeles. Again, thanks for all your help!”

“My latest sci-fi/horror spec was just optioned by Rob Neilson at Etch Media. Rob initially read The Memory Shelf when it won the PAGE Gold Prize and, whilst he was a big fan of it, he was searching for a powerful screenplay that could be done on a more modest budget. When he noticed that my new script made the Semi-Final list this year he requested a copy of the script. He liked it so much he asked to option it immediately!”
