Nollywood Screenwriting contest kicks off

A new contest christened, Nollywood Screen Writing Contest (NSWC), a brainchild of Lawrence Onuzulike, a Nollywood actor, publisher and activist has birthed and N2m is up for grabs!

Speaking during a press parley at his office located in Ikeja, Lagos, at an event which was graced by stakeholders including a select group of media men in the motion picture industry, Onuzulike Said: “Nollywood screenwriting contest was created to reward hardworking screenwriters and highlight the vital roles they play in film making.

In Nollywood, there’s this overall feeling that screenwriters despite playing very important roles in filmmaking are not being well recognized and rewarded in the Nigerian film industry.

“Consequently, Nollywood Screen Writing Contest (NSWC) is geared towards correcting that by bringing to the fore the vital roles played by screenwriters in movie production and in the film industry as a whole.

“The media campaign and the razzmatazz that will surround the contest will not only shed light on screenwriters but will also make them the point of focus for once in an industry often dominated by actors, directors and producers.

“This is one of its kind of a project and has never been done on this scale in Nigeria.”

Brought to you by Aforevo and proudly endorsed by Actors Guild Of Nigeria (AGN), Screen Writers Guild of Nigeria (SWGN), Directors Guild Of Nigeria (DGN) and Association Of Movie Producers (AMP), the winner goes home with the star prize of N1m, and the winning script will be made into a blockbuster Nollywood movie including a one-year scriptwriting contract with Aforevo.
