Fade In magazine has picked the finalists for its sixth annual Fade In Screenwriting Awards.

Finalists in the drama category were Richard Harris (“Silicon Prairie”), Natt Moss and Alfredo de Villa (“Little Angel”) and Kat Smith (“El Paso”).

“Soulmates” scribes Elaura Niles and Mark Renie took the nods in the comedy category.

Kaenen Oliver, Dominic Oliver & Jay Flynn (“New Breed, Old Glory”) and Brian Tuohy (“The Reckoning”) were action finalists, while Philip Pierce (“A-Life”) and Tiffany Borders and John Plunkett (“Can You Keep a Secret?”) took the thriller nod, and Maurice Billington (“9”) was the finalist in the film noir category.

Approximately 2,000 entrants competed in five categories (drama, comedy, action, thriller and noir) and two formats (short and long form).
