REGULAR DEADLINE – JULY 31ST!

With any good script, you need to have a compelling concept; an intriguing and original idea that manages to sound fresh and yet also familiar. Not only that, but the opening scene must grab the reader’s attention; propelling them on a journey along with the protagonist where the challenges mount alongside their growing insight into the personal growth the protagonist needs to undergo to reach their goal.

Now pepper the story with a cast of strong supporting roles and some sparkling dialogue and you are well on your way to becoming a screenwriting contest winner.

THIS SEASON

Our Grand Prize Winner will get on a call with the BAFTA-nominated screenwriter of HOUSE OF GUCCI, ROBERTO BENTIVEGNA, to discuss their winning script and how they can navigate the film industry as a working screenwriter. Roberto has built his career by writing spec features and working on writing commissions. Find out how you can do it too.

$15,000 in Cash & Prizes, including a $5,000 cash prize to the Grand Prize Winner, a $1,000 cash prize for 2nd Place, and $500 for the 3rd Place.

FINAL DEADLINE - AUGUST 31ST!

Recently, breaking into screenwriting with a feature screenplay has felt a bit like mission impossible. But don’t worry; we’ve got you covered.

Our Feature Contest is for screenwriters looking to gain representation with a manager or agent, meet industry professionals, and sell their screenplay.

We’ve helped 100+ writers take their first steps towards a professional screenwriting career and were looking to support more emerging screenwriters this year.

THIS SEASON

$15,000
in Cash & Prizes, including a $5,000 cash prize to the Grand Prize Winner, a $1,000 cash prize for 2nd Place, and $500 for the 3rd Place.

PLUS

Script circulation to our roster of 150+ Producers, Managers, and Agents.


We never circulate scripts without the writer(s) express permission and if the WGA strike is not over by the time we announce our winners & finalists, we will delay script circulation to our Industry Roster until a deal is in place so you won’t miss out on the opportunity to have your work read by the people and companies that can greenlight your script.

And an opportunity to get script feedback & career guidance from BAFTA-nominated screenwriter ROBERTO BENTIVEGNA (HOUSE OF GUCCI).

Don’t miss this opportunity to kick-start your screenwriting career with people who know how to get your script into the hands of industry folks who can actually do something with it.
