Attention American writers: China is calling. Beijing’s municipal government is launching an international screenwriting competition for U.S.-based writers of all nationalities. The “tale of Beijing” themed contest is open to aspiring and established writers who submit short and feature-length screenplays centered on China’s capital city and its culture. Stated goal of the initiative is to foster artistic collaboration and creative dialogue between China and the Us. Unlike many other contests, there is no entry fee for the 2013 Beijing International Screenwriting Competition.  Proposals for the first round of the feature film competition are due April 7th, and short film screenplays are due April 20th. Top finalists for each will be announced in May. In addition to international recognition and cash prizes totaling more than $100,000, all the finalists will receive all-expense paid trips to Beijing in June where they will have the opportunity to meet with Chinese investors. »
