March 1 Deadline: WGC Special Awards

February 20, 2018

Members, have you worked with a showrunner who deserves recognition? Or had a mentor you'd like to acknowledge? Are you a mid-career woman screenwriter hoping to advance a project? If the answer to any of the above is yes, make sure to check out the WGC special awards. And note, the deadline for nominations is March 1. All three special awards will be presented at the WGC Screenwriting Awards gala on April 30, 2018. 
1. The WGC Showrunner Award: For a showrunner who has a strong vision and a body of work that expresses that vision. 
2. The Alex Barris Mentorship Award: For a mentor who has significantly helped a writer (or writers) get a start in the business. (Please note: While the nominator must be a WGC member, the recipient need not be.) 
3. The Sondra Kelly Award: A $5,000 award for a woman screenwriter in mid-career for research/development on a self-initiated project. 
Complete nominations by Thurs., March 1  5:30 p.m. EST. Details and entry forms for each of this year's special awards are available here on the WGC website.
