Can you turn this logline from Randall Wallace, Oscar-Nominated Screenwriter for Braveheart into a killer spec script?

A soldier returns from an 18-month deployment and finds that the family home is missing - even the address no longer exists.

Break out your scriptwriting software and get to work, because the 5th Industry Insider Screenwriting Contest with Randall Wallace (Oscar-Nominated Screenwriter, Braveheart, Pearl Harbor, Writer/Director We Were Soldiers, The Man in the Iron Mask) is here!

The Industry Insider Screenwriting Contest gives you the unique opportunity to turn this logline into a solid spec screenplay that could be your ticket to Hollywood success, just like last round's winner, Tyler Marceca's with The Disciple Program.

An international competition that facilitates relationships between new writers and Industry leaders looking to help aspirants embark on writing careers, The Industry Insider Screenwriting Contest is your key to opening the doors to Hollywood.

Learn how The Disciple Program landed Tyler Marceca a contract with William Morris Endeavor and became the hottest spec script in town!

Do you have what it takes to be the next success story?

Working from this A-list logline from Randall Wallace, you're challenged to create up to the first 15 pages of an original script based on the given concept. Make it your own - drama, action, sci-fi... anywhere your imagination takes you! "A soldier returns from an 18 month deployment and finds that the family home is missing - even the address no longer exists."

But it doesn't stop there. The Industry Insider Screenwriting Contest goes much further than your average competition, by providing the top 10 finalists with mentors to guide them through the entire script creation process, with the goal of completing a spec screenplay to be judged by a panel of Hollywood power players.

The lucky winner receives transportation and lush accommodations at the Chateau Marmont in Hollywood, a classic Industry lunch with Randall Wallace at The Ivy, a meeting with Benderspink, and more.

Fees, Dates and Deadlines:

Contest Begins: February, 2012

Submission Fee and Deadline: $50 - May 15, 2012
