John Jameson Productions, a subsidiary of Jameson Irish Whiskey, is offering budding screenwriters the opportunity to have their idea for a short film developed into a $20,000 production.

The Jameson brand has a global affiliation with film and sponsors a number of festivals, including the Jameson Dublin International Film Festival, the Toronto Film Festival in Canada, and the Tribeca Film Festival in New York.

“Jameson’s international association with film is now well recognised and accepted, but in Australia we wanted to extend that association to ensure it was relevant and meaningful to local filmmakers as a community that perhaps doesn’t always receive the recognition it deserves,” said Jameson Irish Whiskey senior brand manager, Matt Tallentire.

To enter the competition, applicants must write a 200-word synopsis of their screenplay, the only requirement being the film must have an unexpected ending.

Those with the best entries will be invited to attend a workshop hosted by John Jameson Productions to further develop their ideas. The top three screenplays will then be developed into film by a professional production team.
