Winter 2016 Screenwriting Competition

We are delighted to announce the Semi-Finalists for our Winter 2016 International Screenwriting Contest.

WriteMovies Winter 2016 Competition

We are delighted to announce the Semi-finalists for our Winter 2016 International Screenwriting Contest.Thanks to everyone who has entered into what could be your chance to gain our $5,200 in prizes and get pitched to the top of the industry!

Since that late January surge of entries, we have had a lot of scripts to get through – but it’s been an enjoyable task reading through every one submitted – so thank you to everyone who entered the contest.

This has been our strongest field in a while, so don’t get disheartened if you haven’t made the cut this time. We decided against many competent works for a variety of reasons. Most were simply outperformed by other scripts at this stage in their development. Some were not suited for the cinematic medium, others conceptually flawed, and some lacked commercial appeal. But the enthusiasm and dedication from each writer is clear to see, and a lot explored genuinely distinctive territory that deserves further development.

We hope that those who did not make the Semi-Finals will stay in touch with us: very few writers secure an industry commission with their first few screenplays. We have enjoyed our exchanges with you and continue to work hard at making this site more relevant to your careers. Don’t forget that many of our writers got their careers going by using our consulting service: CLICK HERE

If you’ve sent us a revised version of a previous script but it’s still not gained the result you were hoping for, we recommend that you consider getting a consultancy on it from us. That way you can find out what we currently feel is holding your script back. And don’t forget our latest round of contests. You can get free entry to that contest and the Featured Script of the Month when ordering a consultancy HERE.
