Winter 2020 Screenwriting Contest – One Week to Go!

Have you entered the WriteMovies Winter 2020 Screenwriting Contest yet? If not, you’d better move fast – there’s just one week to go until the final deadline, which is coming up this Sunday 1st March!

It’s always easy to miss a deadline, especially when you want your script to be as good as it can get. You get stuck into the editing, polishing every last scene right down to the smallest word – and the next thing you know, you’ve missed your chance. The deadline has passed!

That’s why we always make sure to let you know when one is coming up. The Winter 2020 Screenwriting Contest has been a great one for us so far, especially with the inclusion of our latest genre prize – the Romance and Comedy Award 2020 – and we’re eager to see what else you’ve got for us. Make sure you get those scripts in!

With a $2000 Grand Prize on the line, plus free script development, guaranteed pitching to industry, and InkTip prizes for our top three scripts, there’s plenty to be won. We’re already looking forward to working with our next batch of winners. And who knows, one of them could be you…

WriteMovies Romance and Comedy Award 2020 – One Week to Go!

WriteMovies Romance and Comedy Award 2020 – One Week to Go!

It seems like just yesterday that we were announcing the third WriteMovies genre prize: the Romance and Comedy Award 2020. But the final deadline is already here – you’ve got until the end of this Sunday, February 9th, to submit your scripts!

If you’re feeling in a funny mood or a romantic one with Valentine’s Day coming up – or even a bit of both – then this is the contest for you. We’ll be accepting scripts in the romance, comedy, and rom-com genres – so if you think you’ve got what we’re looking for, make sure you submit by the deadline!

There are great prizes to be won, too. Our winner will receive two sets of Development Notes from our expert script analysts, further advice to fine-tune their work, and guaranteed pitching to industry. Plus, all submissions receive FREE, automatic entry to the Winter 2020 Screenwriting Contest!

The winner of our last genre prize, the Horror Award 2019, was MONGER by David Axe, and he also walked away with the Grand Prize in the Fall 2019 Screenwriting Contest: $2000! If you’d like to follow in his footsteps, then this is your chance.

WriteMovies has been helping writers succeed since 1999, and we’d love to help you, too. Don’t miss out on this great opportunity to get your script out there. Click here to submit to the Romance and Comedy Award 2020 by this Sunday, February 9th!

Fall 2019 Screenwriting Contest – One Week Extension!

You guys spoke and we listened – and as a result, we’re keeping the Fall 2019 Screenwriting Contest open for an extra week, giving you until October 20th to submit your scripts to the competition!

We know that you guys have written a lot of great scripts, and one of the best things we get to do here at WriteMovies is read them! But when a deadline is coming up and you’ve got some last minute changes to make, it can be easy to overrun and miss your chance.

Well, we don’t want you to miss out – and we don’t want to miss out either! We always have a blast with the judging process for our contests, and we’re looking to get the best scripts we possibly can.

That’s why we’ve decided to extend the contest by a week. We’re here to champion great stories and great writers, and this extra week means more time for us to find them!

So make sure you use it wisely. Get your script to its maximum potential and then submit by the end of Sunday October 20th to get it into our hands – and hopefully, into the top three!

And don’t forget that, as ever, by buying a script report from us you can get free entry to the contest – as well as invaluable feedback from an industry professional!

The Fall 2019 Screenwriting Contest is nearly at an end – but it’s not over just yet. Click here to visit the main contest page and enter your script!

WriteMovies Fall 2019 Screenwriting Contest – One Week Until the Deadline!

We’re nearing the end of another contest! Partnered with our first ever Horror Award – the winner of which is announced on Halloween – the end of the WriteMovies Fall 2019 Screenwriting Contest is fast approaching, with submissions closing on October 13th!

Whatever genre your screenplay belongs to, we want to see it. WriteMovies has been helping writers to succeed for twenty years now, and we want to keep that going! We’re always on the look out for great scripts and fresh new voices that deserve to be heard.

That’s part of the reason why we offer our top three scripts a year of free script development followed by pitching to industry. We want to make sure that your work reaches its full potential – and that once it has, it gets the best possible chance of getting into production. A screenplay should be turned into a film – not left to linger on the page!

Don’t forget the Grand Prize for this contest either. The winner walks away with $2000… not to mention bragging rights!

So make sure you don’t miss your chance. If you’ve got a script you want us to champion, enter the WriteMovies Fall 2019 Screenwriting Contest before October 13th to grab our attention. We believe that great writing deserves to be recognized!

You can also get free entry to this contest when you buy a script report from us. Get professional feedback on your script drawn from industry-standard templates, starting with Judging Feedback from $89 up to our more comprehensive Development Notes at $149.

With just one week to go, move fast if you want to enter the Fall 2019 Screenwriting Contest. Click here to submit today!
