Local screenwriters among winners in prestigious state competition

Screenwriters from Staunton and Charlottesville were among the big winners of the 15th Virginia Screenwriting Competition, and another pair from the two local cities were among the finalists for the annual awards.
Allan Moye from Staunton and Virginia Proutt from Charlottesville were honored along with C.B. Wilson from Ruther Glen as the winners of the competition. The winners were announced before a screening of the film “Sunshine Cleaning,” which was written by 2003 Virginia Screenwriting Competition winner Megan Holley of Richmond.

Wilson, who was honored for her work “Chubby,” is now a four-time winner of the competition. Moye, honored for his work “The Lizard Lady,” is a three-time winner.

Matthew Warner of Staunton was named a finalist for “Eyes Everywhere,” a screenplay adaptation of his novel by the same name. Scott Norris of Charlottesville was also a finalist for his work “Expiration Date.”
