Standard Deadline in 1 Week – Winter Contest and Romance and Comedy Award!

There’s just one week until we reach the first deadline for our current contests, coming up on December 20th! We saw a consistently high standard of scripts for our recent Fall Contest, showing that all that hard work you’ve been putting in is paying off, and we want to keep that going with our Winter 2021 Screenwriting Contest and Romance and Comedy Award.

2020 might seem like a year to forget for a lot of people, but there are still lots of opportunities to be had for writers. Producers want strong scripts for when productions can restart in earnest and movie theatres can reopen, so hopefully you’ve been using this time wisely to work on yours!
