Big Nicholl News

Went to the website to print off the application form and surprise! The online form is finally available! Woo! Hoo! Yippee! Hot Diggity Dog! But then -- oops. No worky. Okay, well at least they got it up. The deadline is still May 1st so in case they don't get the bugs worked out (there are always bugs, there must be bugs), you might want to stick your application and screenplay in the mail -- just to be safe.

In other contest news, Scriptapalooza extended their deadline from April 14th to April 21st. I always get suspicious when contests extend their deadlines. Why extend? Did they not get enough entry fees to cover the cost of the contest? Sure seems that way. But, it's endorsed by WGA, winners have opted and sold, and I think they provide script coverage of entries. So, it's probably a safe competition to enter.

Also, the AFF early deadline is May 15th. 'Tis the season to be writing!

Yeah! I was hoping Scriptapalooza would extend their deadline. I think I *might* be able to finish it by next Friday.

I think they've extended their deadline before in years past. I imagine they get constant requests to do so. Anyway, pretty lame of them to have the (original) deadline so close to tax day. Anyone really want to go near the post office right now?

Good luck! I hope you get it (since then you'd have to come out here to LA! ;-)
