And the screenplay award goes to...

Amidst the excitement and exhilaration of this weekend’s London Screeenwriters Festival, we announced the winner of the 50 Kisses Screenplay Award to a packed Hall in the Keynote speech.


Who won?


“Enough” by Kirsty McConnell (Read script here)

Screenwriting Legend John August said of the script “What I like about “Enough” is that such a simple scene outlines such a complicated--but familiar--situation. We're invited to figure out what happened and what these characters want in the aftermath of an offscreen revelation. The resulting kiss is both unexpected and justified”


Death at a Funeral Writer Dean Craig said “(The script)Manages to be intriguing, relatable, emotionally resonant and surprising, and best of all it feels real. This is a writer with great instincts”


Wow, well done Kirsty! Praise indeed.
