The last eighteen months have seen people become confined in their homes across the globe. Unable to travel, many of them are looking for new worlds to discover.
That’s why the WriteMovies Sci-Fi and Fantasy Award 2021 is now open! We’re looking for writers to submit scripts that take audiences to strange new locations and introduce them to otherworldly characters.
Spring is upon us, and the start of a new season means a new contest from WriteMovies. The Spring 2021 Screenwriting Contest is now open!
If you haven’t entered our Romance and Comedy Award yet, you’d better move fast. There’s just one week until the deadline, which is coming up fast on January 17th!
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!
First up, our Romance and Comedy Award is all about those feel-good movies that audiences need after the events of this year. We want to celebrate writing across all genres with our series of genre awards, and this one has come along at just the right time.
The winner will receive:
- 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.
Plus all submissions will automatically get FREE entry to the Winter Contest, with even more great prizes on offer! Click HERE to submit before the standard deadline of December 20th!
For the Winter 2021 Screenwriting Contest, we accept scripts of all shapes, sizes, and genres. Whether you’ve written a feature, a TV pilot, or a short, we’d love to see what you’ve got for us. We also accept video game scripts and books, so submit now if you think you’ve written a novel that would adapt well for the screen!
The Grand Prize winner takes home $3500, and the top three scripts all receive:
- A year of free script development worth up to $3200
- Guaranteed pitching to industry
- An invitation to a lunch with an industry executive in L.A.
- Exclusive listing from InkTip
We’re looking for stories that keep us engaged from the first page to the last – and, crucially, will compete well in today’s market. If you want to enter before December 20th, click HERE!
As we approach the end of 2020, it’s also the end of yet another contest – it’s time to announce the winners of our Fall 2020 Screenwriting Contest! Today’s the day we award our top three with script development, pitching to industry, and more, and also give away our Grand Prize of $3500.
Taking 3rd place in the Summer 2020 Screenwriting Contest is a biopic that grabbed us with its fascinating premise, telling the story of a 17th century nun who went on to live as a man and became a conquistador: THE LIEUTENANT NUN by Matthew Bernstein and Eva Mendieta!
