Slamdance Screenplay/Teleplay Competitions Call For Submissions

From the Slamdance website:

Writing Competitions Launch:
After the festival, we turn our attention to Slamdance's Writing Department: 2009's Writing Competitions have already kicked off with fantastic prizes and sponsors. The Short Screenplay Competition's final deadline is just around the corner (February 9, 2009), so hurry up with those submissions: the Grand Prize Winner walks away with $500.00.
And wait … there's more! One of top five finalists will be selected and produced as a part of Slamdance's $99 Special Competition and screen at the 2010 Festival! Check out previous Slamdance $99 Specials here.
The Teleplay Competition Call For Entries has also launched: The scripted portion is sponsored by Act III Productions and the unscripted portion is sponsored by the Greif Company: early deadline is February 17, 2009. Save some money and get those original ideas in ASAP - we want to read them and connect you with companies who want to produce your ideas. Step to it now!
Feature Screenplay Call For Entries opens in March 2009 and is sponsored by Upload Films with a $7,000 Grand Prize Award. Upload Films recently signed an option agreement with our 2008 Screenplay winner Neil McGowan (NUMBERED).
The Slamdance Horror Screenplay Competition begins in June 2009 and the winner walks with $5,000 as well as a possible option agreement. And regardless of genre or length, if you have a script and you want some constructive feedback from our expert team, check out our year round coverage service.
