$50,000 CHRONOS PRIZE PRESENTED
Movieguide® Announces Winner of Second Annual $50,000
Chronos Prize for Inspiring Screenplays by Established Filmmakers
Movieguide®: The Family Guide to Movies and Entertainment, founded by Dr. Ted Baehr, announced the winner of the Second Annual $50,000 Chronos Prize for Inspiring Screenplays by Established Filmmakers at the 23rd Annual Faith & Values Awards Feb. 6 at the Universal Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles.
Supported by a grant from the John Templeton Foundation, the Chronos Prize awards $50,000 to the top screenplay as chosen by Hollywood leaders. The prize honors established filmmakers whose work seeks to “increase man’s love or understanding of God.”
Dave Alan Johnson, Gary R. Johnson, and Joan Considine Johnson captured the attention of the judges, bringing home the Chronos Prize for their script, THE STAR OF BETHLEHEM, which is about an 11-year-old girl and her father who go up against a politically correct school system to prove the science behind the Star of Bethlehem.
In addition to the cash prize, Movieguide® sends out the winning script to top industry leaders who request it.
The Third Annual Chronos Prize will open for entries April 2015. For more information about the Chronos Prize, please go to www.chronosprize.com.
In addition to the Chronos Prize, the highlight of Movieguide®’s Faith & Values Awards each year is the presentation of the two $100,000 Epiphany Prizes for Inspiring Movies & TV. Also supported by a grant from the John Templeton Foundation, the Epiphany Prizes honor the best, most inspiring movie and television program of the previous year.Do you enjoy articles like this?
