TKairos Prizehe $50,000 Kairos Prizes for Spiritually Uplifting Screenplays by First-Time and Beginning Screenwriters is now accepting submissions for its 10th annual competition.

“Because of the Kairos Prizes, Hollywood is showing more and more interest in faith-based, redemptive stories,” commented Dr. Ted Baehr, Founder of Movieguide®: The Family Guide to Movies and Entertainment. “And, we are honored by the amazing support the Hollywood community has shown toward the competition.”

From now until October 1, 2014, those who submit their script entries for the competition will receive an entry fee discount of $60. After that, the entry fee will be $80 until the final deadline of November 4, 2014.

The winners will be announced at the 23rd Annual Faith & Values Awards Gala and Report to the Entertainment Industry on February 6, 2015, at the Universal Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles.

In addition to the Kairos Prizes, the highlight of the Faith & Values Awards each year is the presentation of the two $100,000 Epiphany Prizes for Inspiring Movies & TV. Also supported by a grant from the John Templeton Foundation, the Epiphany Prizes honor the best, most inspiring movie and television program of the previous year.
