Many contests will quickly move on after announcing the placings. Not us. We are constantly getting each year's top scripts out to the industry and creating real and tangible opportunities and successes for our writers.

THIS SEASON

We will be awarding a $2,500 cash prize to each of the two Grand Prize Winners (1-Hour and 1/2-Hour), and a $500 cash prize to each of the two 2nd Placed Winners (1-hour and 1/2-hour).


Plus, Both the 1-Hour and 1/2-Hour TV Pilot Grand Prize Winners will get on a call with SEAN CHARLES, Development & Production Manager at AMC Networks, to discuss their winning scripts.

Mentoring can help new writers improve their career trajectory, better understand how the industry works, and receive advice about challenges and opportunities that arise.

Understanding the importance of mentoring, Shore Scripts has leveraged its long-standing and extensive relationships with producers, managers, and agents to bring about this new opportunity for emerging writers as part of our TV Pilot Contest prize package.
