PLUG: Best for Film

by Rachel · December 7, 2010 · Plugs · No Comments


Calling all LAMBS! We want to read your film reviews! Say you’re a LAMB blogger when entering this competition and we’ll make sure your posted entry has a link to your blog! And if you spread the word, we’ll be honoured and grateful.

Looking for a creative project over the festive season? Film website is excited to announce the launch of Write Christmas; a yuletide writing competition with a once in a lifetime first prize. Read on for more details…


The concept of Write Christmas is simple – to write a film review of the greatest Christmas film never made. With Hollywood churning out the same old Christmas tat every year, it’s difficult to see how we’ll ever get a truly brilliant NEW Christmas story on our screens. Best For Film are looking for fantastic writers to review the NEXT greatest, most ridiculous, potentially iconic Christmas film – the fact that it doesn’t actually exist yet is merely a quibble.

Our panel of esteemed judges includes:

LARUSHKA IVAN-ZADEH – Film editor of The Metro (3.5 million readers every weekday)
EMMA KENNEDY – actress (Notes on a Scandal), author, film critic for the Danny Baker show
CLEOLINDA JONES – parody film critic, author, blogger


First Prize:
– A real-life A1 poster of your made-up movie as imagined by OTM Entertain, the world-famous design team team that brought you the posters for The Hurt Locker, In The Loop, Splice and The Losers. Blimey!
– One hundred pounds to spend as you deem fit
– Publication on

Two runners up will receive:
– fifty pounds each
– Publication on

You have until the 24th December to enter, by emailing your glorious review to, with “Write Christmas” in the subject line.

So, from a sombre review of Tim Burton’s unmade fantasy “Twas the Cheekbone before Christmas” to a brilliant write-up of Michael Bay’s never made classic “When Santa Exploded” – Best For Film wants to read the review of the best Christmas film we’ll never get to see. You’ve got until the 24th to get scribbling – the same deadline as Santa! How could it be any other way…
