After much deliberation in a tightly knit contest. We can finally announce the five finalists that have made the shortlist for the first ever Short Com Sitcom Writing Competition sponsored by Final Draft.
Joe Barnes – Joy
Richard Lazarus – Plan-B
Emma Ramsey – Sorry
Ian Smith – Mayor
Ian Sweeney – Saviour
Each of the five writers displayed great imagination, craft and uniqueness to stand-out to make the final five shortlist.
The five scripts have been sent to the expert panel of judges of Jon Aird; Lucy Lumsden, Mia Ylonen and Toby Smith who will each decide on their favourite scripts to determine an overall winner. With the winner to be announced at the end of the month.
Short Com director Chris Aitken would like to once again thank those who entered and encourages those writers to keep on writing. He would like to send a big thank you to the script reading team of Lee Hamilton and Declan Hill with their sharp critical critique in assessing entries.
