  • Winners get a semi-staged Live Script Read with Professional Actors, to bring your script to life right in front of your eyes
  • Unlike many other Screenwriting competitions, we do not charge extra for our (extensive) Feedback/Coverage

  • Amazing things have happened to a large number of our Top 3 Winners in all Categories.
    • Agent representation, Options at big Hollywood studios like CAA, Paramount, and Disney.
