Movieguide® Now Accepting Script Entries for 2nd Annual $50K Chronos Prize

Chronos PrizeCompetition is now open for the Second Annual $50,000 Chronos Prize for Inspiring Screenplays by Established Filmmakers, according to an announcement last week by Dr. Ted Baehr, Founder of Movieguide®: The Family Guide to Movies and Entertainment.

Supported by a grant from the John Templeton Foundation, the $50,000 Chronos Prize for Inspiring Screenplays by Experienced Filmmakers honors faith-friendly or faith-based scripts that promote “a greater understanding or love of God.”

The $50,000 winner 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.

“The Chronos Prize represents a new milestone in promoting faith-friendly and faith-based content in mainstream movies,” remarked Dr. Baehr, who chairs NRB’s Film Standing Committee and serves on the association’s Board of Directors. “As this spring has shown, movies with faith and values are the most successful movies on almost every level.”

Filmmakers eligible to compete for the Chronos Prize are past nominees and winners of the Movieguide® Faith & Values Awards and/or established filmmakers who want to create and distribute profitable, spiritually uplifting movies or television programs demonstrating man’s love or understanding of God. Other criteria for the prizes may be found on the Chronos Prize website at www.chronosprize.com.

An early bird discount price of $50 will be given to those who submit their script entries by October 15, 2014. After that, the entry fee will be $75 until the final deadline of November 21, 2014.

In addition to the Chronos Prize, 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.
