At the end of the training programme, the best-developed story receives 1500 Euros.

·         CORTO86 Award for Best Short-Film Screenplay: the winning author is awarded a Training Grant and an opportunity to produce a short film based on the winning short film screenplay. Professionals will tutor the author throughout the whole filmmaking process (pre-production, production, post-production, direction).

·         DOLLY "Screenwriting with pictures" Award for Best Story illustrated through images: the winner is awarded a Training Grant to develop his/her story under tailor-made tutoring of professionals, which leads to the drafting of a final dossier for the feature or animation film project.

Winners get the chance to attend masterclasses, lectures and seminars on screenwriting and other cinema-related topics.
