Is Gimme Credit opening for entries in 2013?

No. We have decided to shutter our competition to pursue other things. We do have another service for writers that we would like to launch in the future so please do stay in contact! The best way to do that is through our facebook page, our director's twitter page, the newsletter sign-up page on the home page.

Thanks for coming to check and good luck with all of your future writing!

How do I format my screenplay correctly?

It can be difficult to format a screenplay properly without Final Draft or Movie Magic software. However, there are websites out there with free, similar software that will help you with correct formatting. This website lists a number of the free software programs at the bottom. It also gives a plethora of helpful tips on how to format a script properly. Having a professionally formated screenplay is the best way to ensure your script is as readable as possible so that what stands out is the story, not the incorrect formatting.
