AWG launch horror script competition

The Australian Writers’ Guild has celebrated Halloween by launching the Terror Australis Horror Script Competition.

Seeking the best unproduced horror feature script in Australia, the Australis Horror Script Competition is looking for the next Saw, Undead or Wolf Creek.

The winning writer will receive an audience with, and script read by, producers Chris Brown (Daybreakers, The Proposition), David Lightfoot (Wolf Creek, Rogue), Josh Reed (Primal) and Andrew Traucki (Black Water, The Reef) as well as a micro-mentorship from Shayne Armstrong and Shane Krause (Acolytes).

The AWG welcome all horror-related sub-genres; slasher films, vampire scripts, zombie flicks, thrillers, horror-westerns, you name it.

The competition closes Friday 18 November.
