Last call for writers! Deadline na ng FAP Scriptwriting and Storyline contest sa Jan. 15, 2005. Reminder, extension na ito kaya huwag na kayong umasa ng another extension. Besides, wala nang time para sa awarding dahil isasabay ito sa Academy Awards Night na idadaos sa April, 2005.

As of the latest count, 84 na ang scripts at 123 ang storyline. Para sa mga nagtatanong kung natanggap ang kanilang entry, wait lang po. Mukhang pumayag ang contest committee na i-publish natin ang mga titles ng lahat ng entries so you can see for yourselves. Abangan sa susunod na issue ng Fapourri.

Allow us to share a feedback regarding the scriptwriting contest.

Hello po,

Just went to the FAP website. Nabasa ko yung article on the contest by Kiko ARroyo & read that “many were called but only few submitted.” I also read that “entries who “violated” the technical requirements, (e.g. the number of sequences, pages, etc.) will be discarded.” Could the academy or who ever will screen the entries “discard” its strict and irrelevant technical requirements for the sake of the contest as well as the merit of the submitted work. Kung kakaunti din lang pala nagsubmit tapos magbabawas pa dahil kulang o sobra yung sequences/ pages, or less than an inch or more than an inch ang margin, sayang ang entry and it will also work against the contest. Baka wala ng matira. O mas mahalaga ba itsura kaysa yung laman ng sinulat. I believe the contest is a WRITING contest that should foster Filipino creativity, and limiting this to unnecessary technicalities is unfair and illogical din po.

Yun lang po. Sana – kung na-extend yung “strict” deadline – e mabago din ang technical rules ng 1st FAP Screenwriting contest.

salamat very much.

Eto pa ang isang feedback. Parang debate ang dating natin nito, hehehe.

To the contest committee, sana po maisip ninyo na hindi magandang gawing judges ang mga writers. Tulad po sa painting, ang gingawang judge ay ang mahilig sa painting at hindi ang mga painters. Kasi po alam nating may bias ang mga writers. Sana rin po enforeced talga ang rules dahil kung hindi rin lnag gagamitin ang rules sana wala na lang.

Please do not publish my name and email address.

For the other contest, yung Name The Statuette, more than 300 entries na ang natanggap namin mula Luzon, Visayas at Mindanao. Merong ding entries na galing sa USA, Germany, New Zealand, KSA at Qatar. Malay natin before the deadline baka may entry na galing sa ibang planeta, hehehe (this line is courtesy of our editor).

Puwede pa kayong humabol dahil up to Jan. 31, 2005 pa ang deadline. For details, paki-click lang ang menu sa kanan. No need to send by postal mail. Hindi na rin kailangan by email kasi automatic email na ang entry form ng Name The Statuette contest. At para sa mga humihingi ng tip na puwedeng manalong pangalan, ang masasabi ko lang, female name ang isali ninyo!
