If you have written a feature length script for a film, short film, tele-movie, TV series or documentary, don’t miss out on this amazing opportunity to win 12-months free membership of the AWG, a copy of Final Draft 8 professional script writing software AND get your work read by industry experts.

In an effort to give promising Tasmanian projects the best possible chance of production, the short-listed and winning scripts of the BOFA Competition will be added to the AWG’s Pathways Program, an initiative designed to fast-track potential projects by matching the writer with targeted producers, production executives and/or directors.

This is an invaluable prize as the hardest aspect of being a writer is getting your work read and produced. Here’s an opportunity to get your foot in the door….

The AWG is also offering a special membership discount for Tasmanian practitioners so if your writing for screen, stage or cross-platform is a reality or an aspiration, being a member of the Guild is the best investment you can make in your career. For further details, please call the AWG on 1300 552 228 or (02) 9319 0339.

  • be a Tasmanian resident
