Great News! ANA Alliance for Family Entertainment First Annual Writing Contest Winner Announcement

29 January 2012

To Whom This May Concern at Writing Contests,

I’m following up on behalf of the ANA Alliance for Family Entertainment (AFE) regarding their first annual writing contest, which you covered here last October. There were so many great submissions and so the final winner did not get announced until this week.

Megan Angelo, a journalist and aspiring screenwriter, took home the winning prize of $5,000 plus the opportunity to be mentored by TV icon John Wells for her script, O’Connell for Congress.

O’Connell for Congress features Tim O’Connell, a self-described “high school screw up” turned failed businessman. Still, he has a party emporium millionaire wife, two rambunctious teenage sons, a child detective daughter and a new plan: to run for public office. But when Tim attracts the sudden interest of some powerful political strategists with their own motives, the O’Connell family is thrown into a world that they are not prepared to handle.

Angelo honed her skill by writing stories for publications including The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Marie Claire, Glamour, Business Insider, Philadelphia Magazine and BRIDES. Megan has been writing scripts for several years, entering contests regularly looking for her first break.

I thought your readers may be interested in learning more about the winning script as the 2012 contest and another chance to submit and win will be coming later this year.  You can find more info in the official site announcement www.comedywritercontest.com and the New York Times piece, which ran this past Monday.

P.S. Congratulations to Megan Angelo for her First Prize Winning script titled, O’Connell for Congress!
