Awg names Philip Tarl Denson and Lâle Teoman Monte Miller Award winners

Philip Tarl Denson and Lâle Teoman.

Screenwriters Philip Tarl Denson and Lâle Teoman have been named the 2019 winners of the Australian Writers’ Guild’s annual Monte Miller Awards, which recognise unproduced screenplays.

At a ceremony last night in Melbourne, Denson took home the award in the Long Form category with his sci-fi pilot Anomaly, while Teoman received the Short Form award for her web series The Black Tulip.

The two writers will now share in $35,000 in script development funding to further their scripts, with the funds invested by Scripted Ink.

The winners were selected from a pool of over 390 entries, with television and web series concepts dominating the six projects that were shortlisted.

The final judging panels praised the quality and skills of the winning writers and singled out the incredible feats of imagination displayed in crafting their stories, both of which grapple with intriguing mysteries through a sci-fi lens.
