Question: If you won a cash prize for screenwriting in a previous year, can you enter this year with a new screenplay?

Answer:  Indeed you may.  The only categories that disallow previous winners from entering are the Emerging Writers categories, which are designed to be entered by new and unpublished writers.  (Once you've won an Emerging Writers award, you've officially emerged.)

    I won a cash prize many years back in your student contest. Does this mean I am not eligable to enter the adult contest now that I am over the age of 18?

      You are totally eligible to enter the contest. Only the Emerging Writers categories do not accept entries from past winners, but since you won in New Mountain Voices and not the adult contest that won’t count against you there.
