Summer 2017 Screenwriting Competition Quarter-Finalists Revealed…

Summer 2017 Screenwriting Competition: Major international screenwriting contest…

**Semi-Finals date: October 20th.**

Hollywood might have had a downer this Summer, but you guys have made our Summer 2017 Screenwriting Contest HOT!

This batch of 51 scripts, books, and pilots made a great impression on our judges and we are so excited to get into these entries and decide on our Semi-Finalists for next week!

Thanks to all of you who entered – find out if you’re one of the lucky Quarter-Finalists below…

The screenwriting quality was higher than we’ve seen in a long, long time at this stage of judging. So this was our toughest field in recent years for selecting Quarter-Finalists, and a number of promising writers have been very unlucky to miss out – so don’t get disheartened if you’re one of them. If you’d like to know why your script performed as it did this time, and how to take it forward, commission a Script Report from us to get an analyst’s eye on what’s working in it and what’s holding it back.

We provide hundreds of studio-quality Script Reports for writers and producers every year, to show them how the industry would currently rate and handle their script, and how to take them to the next level… Oh, and you’ll get the chance to enter our Winter 2017 Competition early, too. Check out our website’s new-look Mentoring section for all the ways that we can take you and your writing to the top!
