The Alties Script Writing Competition

I have just entered a competition to win £2000 for the alternative ending I've invented for a well known crime/comedy film of 1969. I used the full 750 words to do so. Some scenes in the original film have fast-paced action so I have submitted my entry in the Best Action and Adventure category as it seems the best fit, though there are more adventure packed films, and funnier comedies so I was a little confused as to which one to go for. There are 5 categories altogether. I have written my piece in prose, but it can be presented in scripted dialogue. Why don't you give it a go? Closes 4th September 2015 so still time to get that thinking cap on.

Online retailer Cartridge Save has set up the'The Alties' competition. Entrants are to script an alternative ending to a favourite film. The grand prize is £2000. There are runner- up prizes too.
