Screenwriter wins award.
Tessa Sheridan, who won the Short Film Palme d'Or Award at the Cannes Film Festival, in 1997, for her film entitled Is it the Design on the Wrapper? took the pounds 2,000 first prize for her short story entitled, That Going to the Zoo Thing.
Tessa was presented with her prize by popular screenwriter, Tim Firth, whose work includes screenplays for Calendar Girls and Confessions of a Shopaholic, at the Awards Evening, hosted at the University of Chester.
Tessa now lives in London but used to live in Chester when she worked as a freelance writer.
She said: "It's fantastic to win this prize. I feel like I've been talking into a cave for years and I've finally got a reply."
