Here’s today’s dispatch from the crossroads of faith, media and culture.

Spiritually-uplifting screenplays sought. From Infolist.com: The Kairos Prize for Spiritually Uplifting Screenplays is currently open for its 8th incredible season.  With $50,000 in cash prizes, it is the largest competition of its kind, and we are searching for screenplays that are inspiring and uplifting, and inspire moral and spiritual values...In addition to the prize money, Kairos scripts get READ by top execs.  This year alone – two winning scripts have already completed principal photography with a third shooting this fall!  Two others are in development and two are currently completing option deals. The Kairos Prize has nearly a 20% winner to production ratio...Supported by a grant from the John Templeton Foundation and seeking to promote positive change in the motion picture industry, the primary purpose of the KAIROS PRIZE is to further the influence of moral and spiritual values within the entertainment industry as a whole.  While much attention has been granted those who are “in” the industry, the KAIROS PRIZE aims to bring encouragement and hope to new voices that would one day be writing Hollywood’s blockbusters – hence the Kairos Prize for Spiritually Uplifting Screenplays.

Note: The so-called “Late Deadline” (I guess there was an early one) is Friday, November 2nd. There’s an $80 entry fee but subscribers to Infolist get a 20% discount ($64).  For more information about the Kairos Prize go to www.kairosprize.com/about.html
