Movieguide® Founder Dr. Ted Baehr announced last week that the $50,000 Kairos Prizes for Spiritually Uplifting Screenplays by First-Time and Beginning Screenwriters is now accepting submissions for its 11th annual competition.
Supported by a grant from the John Templeton Foundation, the Kairos Prizes award $50,000 to the top three entries – $25,000, $15,000, and $10,000.
The winners will be announced at the 24th Annual Faith & Values Awards Gala and Report to the Entertainment Industry on February 5, 2016, at the Universal Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles.
An early-bird discount of $50 will be available to those who submit their script entries by August 15, 2015. The regular deadline for entries is October 7, 2015, with a fee of $60. A late entry fee of $80 will be charged after that, until the final deadline of November 2, 2015.
Since 2006, the Kairos Prizes have celebrated the best new screenplays by beginning screenwriters across the globe that “greatly increase man’s love or understanding of God.” Other criteria for the prizes may be found on the Kairos Prizes website at www.kairosprize.com.
“Hollywood is showing more and more interest in faith-based, redemptive stories because of the Kairos Prizes,” Dr. Baehr reported. “We are honored by the amazing support the Hollywood community has shown toward the competition.”
