We’re excited to have Final Draft added to our list of Official Sponsors for “The Don” Award, 2014!

“The Don” Award will be branded!

Thanks to Artist of blown glass, Richard “Dick” Bunting, “The Don” Award for ‘Best Produced Independent Feature Screenplay’ will have its own official award design, hand (and mouth) made each year.  This will certainly make this wonderful award a unique, and sought after token of hard work and dedication.
