Every year we set ourselves apart by offering prizes that set YOU apart!

Now in its 6th year, The Just Effing Entertain Me Screenwriting Competition’s grand prize winners get flown to Los Angeles, where they receive three nights free accommodation, spending money, a whirlwind of industry meetings, connections and read requests AND lunch with an A-list writer.

Winning is only the beginning! Unexpected extra prizes and introductions are what we are all about – because that’s how we roll.

That’s why our tag line is Live the Dream. Because you really will have a Hollywood experience like none other. One that might just open some doors for you. This year that lucky person could be YOU.

Congratulations to our 2012 Grand Prize Winner, Matthew Morgan!

Less than 6 weeks after his JFEME win, Matt secured representation at ICM!

But don’t just take Matt’s word for it, check out what our previous winners have been up to since they won.
