VPYPE Screenplay Pitch Contest on Facebook

Vpype, a social video company, is having the first live Screenplay Pitch Contest on Facebook. The contestants will be competing for the opportunity to have their screenplay reviewed by industry decision makers with the power to Greenlight their creative visions.

This is a five-minute pitch contest using the Vpype Live Broadcaster Application on Facebook.
To enter it’s as easy as these three simple steps:
1. Join The Hollywood VPYPE Pitch Contest group on Facebook
2. Visit the Vpype Live Broadcaster Application on Facebook and click on “go to app”
3. Once you’re at the app, click on “Start Your Show”. Be sure to share with “everyone” and add “Pitch” to your show name! Now, record your five- minute pitch!

Submissions for the competition begin February 23, 2010 and end at midnight on April 15, 2010. A-List industry professionals from Fox, MGM, William Morris Endeavor and other top rate production companies will review each and every pitch before narrowing it down to ten finalists.
Each contestant is allowed to record as many five-minute pitches as they’d like, but if submitting multiple pitches, each one must be posted separately.
The five-minute pitches must be in English using the Vpype Broadcaster Application template designed for the contest. Each pitch will be judged on their originality, commercial viability and the writer’s unique point of view. This is the opportunity of a lifetime for aspiring screenwriters to get that meeting they’ve always dreamed of!

On April 26th, 2010 the top ten finalists will be announced on the Contest Group page on Facebook. The ten finalists will be given their specific slot for the live pitching event finals to be held on May 1st, 2010 at 6pm PST. Using the Vpype Live Broadcaster Application, each finalist will pitch their five-minute script idea to the panel of judges who will provide live feedback. The judges will then choose the top three winners who will be announced on the group page on May 3rd, 2010.
