The 4th Xinghao Youth Script and Creative Designing Competition and Award Ceremony was held at the Beiguo Theater of Beijing Normal University on May 4 as a part of the 24th Beijing College Student Film Festival.
"A successful film may involve many factors such as a good director, popular performers or brilliant visual effects, but a failed one must have a close relationship with the quality of a certain script," Wang Hailin, renowned Chinese playwright, said at the competition.
"College students represent the most vigorous and passionate group in the entire society. When you devote yourselves to writing scripts, you may be faced with many temptations like money, power, glory or status, but you should not forget your original will, and stick to your dream," he added.

Eighteen candidates'scripts were selected for the final competition. There were three second prize winners, five third prize winners and 10 consolation prizes awarded.
