Entries are now being accepted for the One In Ten Screenplay Contest, a contest dedicated to the positive portrayal of gays, lesbians, bisexuals, transgender and queer individuals in film. Only the first 600 entries will be accepted on this 11th anniversary of the event.
"We are excited to celebrate our 11th anniversary and are looking at a record number of entries this year," said Executive Director David Jensen. "We have even added a new contest this year, The Gay (GLBTQ) Movie Title Contest. We are continually amazed with the quality of talent that comes through the door year after year. We receive entries from around the globe and Hollywood is taking notice in a very big way. Many of our past winners are now hard working screenwriters"
