The late deadline for the WriteMovies Sci-Fi and Fantasy Award is May 29th – which means you’ve got just one week left to submit!
The prizes on offer for the winner are:
- Guaranteed pitching to industry
- Two sets of Development Notes to help take their script to the next level
- Further advice to fine tune their script from our experts
Don’t forget that all submissions also get free entry to the WriteMovies 2022 Screenwriting Contest, giving you the chance to win the $3500 Grand Prize!
May 29th also marks seven years since the release of JURASSIC WORLD, a successful reboot for a major sci-fi franchise. With franchises such as STAR WARS and Marvel films dominating the box-office in recent years, there are major commercial opportunities in these genres.
It’s extremely difficult for a novice writer to obtain the rights to remake or adapt a famous franchise for the modern era, but sci-fi and fantasy doesn’t always need a massive budget: PRIMER is one of the most exciting sci-fi stories ever released and was made for just $7000!
Writing a script with franchise or sequel potential is always a good idea too, something we rarely see at WriteMovies. The benefit for your writing career can be immense though, and sci-fi and fantasy are the perfect genres to do it.
So if you’ve got a franchise-starting script, get it polished and enter the Sci-Fi and Fantasy Award before the deadline on May 29th!
