Hi, First post here I'm in the UK, and I was just wondering if someone could let me know what the main UK screenplay writing competitions are? Are competitions a really bad way to try to get noticed? I'e so many people enter that there's practically zero chance of being noticed? Do the competitions mostly finish in the first half of the year, or the 2nd half? I'm not too bothered about prize money, I'm just interested in getting my work judged and critiqued. Does it matter if it's a UK, USA or European competition? Seeing that I'm in the UK. And I know this is dumb, but I'm paranoid about my ideas being copied, is that a reasonable fear when entering competitions? or completely irrational. Thanks for any advice.
