Supporting Canadian Screenwriters
Hogg, Shain & Scheck are proud supporters of the Writers Guild of Canada (WGC) Screenwriting Awards. Being a gold sponsor, we are always excited to recognize Canada’s talent and emerging local artists.
In the 23rd year, 2019 WGC Screenwriting Awards were held on April 29th, at the TELUS Centre for Performance and Learning’s Koerner Hall in Toronto. The awards celebrated Canadian-made TV, films, documentaries, and webseries.
