“No God But Funny” Contest winners announced at Café Inquiry
September 2, 2015
At the monthly Café Inquiry at CFI-L.A. last week (Aug. 26), more than 50 attendees saw the winning 16-minute webisode entry, Earth Angel, submitted by John Dardis of Los Angeles for the first-ever “No God But Funny” Contest. Entrants were asked to “contribute to the downfall of civilization by writing a sitcom and/or producing a webisode that features a likable atheist.”
Dardis received a check for $25,000 from Jim Underdown, executive director of CFI-L.A, who also announced the winners of the $15,000 teleplay part of the contest - the Salt Lake City writing team of Rachel Lewis and Daniel Beecher, who were not present. The showing of Earth Angel was followed by a Q&A with John and Jim.
The contest was the idea of CFI-L.A. supporter Pamela Koslyn, who donated funds along with CFI and the Freedom from Religion Foundation. The winners will get the chance to pitch their entries to entertainment industry producers.
