We’re pausing our contests to focus on a big year for our founder and recent winners.
Like many people and businesses, 2022 was a challenging year for us, with unexpected staffing changes and resultant delivery challenges. This left us with a bigger backlog of work than we anticipated, but coming into 2023 we’re ready and refocused for an exciting year for us, our founder Alex Ross, and our winners. Here are a few headlines of what to expect in 2023!
We’re pausing our contests while we focus on Alex’s news and on delivering great results in the industry for our 2022 winners and existing clients. You can still submit for our “Anytime Entry” to get a 10-page Analysis of your script and a free submission of your redraft to the next relevant WriteMovies contest. We will work personally with any existing submissions to help them get the most out of their entry.
Our consultancy services are now delivered directly by Alex Ross – literally the world’s most qualified person in why films succeed and fail! They still also come with a free contest entry. Check out the many packages and prices available here!
We have big announcements to make about Alex’s work and publications in 2023, including book news which all screenwriters will want to know about – watch this space in the coming weeks!
We’ll also be working with our winning writers and clients behind the scenes – and will be pitching them to industry soon! We’ll introduce them and their scripts on our website and newsletters for you soon.
We’ll also be turning Alex’s, and our own, lectures and insights into snappy online videos and online courses!
We’re really looking forward to this year – hope you are too!

Earlier this week we reported how recent Grand Prize Winner Vanisha Renée Pierce earned multiple industry partnerships thanks to her win with WriteMovies, but she’s not alone: Elizabeth Savage Sullivan has also found success since her win!
Elizabeth was our Grand Prize Winner in Summer 2020 with her script THE BOY ON COVER, a powerful screenplay telling the story of photojournalists working in the war-torn Congo – and how their actions can change the course of both their own lives and the lives of their subjects.
Now, she’s also being rewarded for her work thanks to the prizes she received from WriteMovies for her win:
“Since winning the WriteMovies Summer 2020 Screenwriting Contest, I was hired by Dimlight Pictures to rewrite an exciting screenplay for a director-producer who found me on Inktip. This was one of the great prizes I received from WriteMovies for my Grand Prize win with The Boy on the Cover!
I also recently become a quarter finalist in Nicholl, 2021.”
Congratulations to Elizabeth Savage Sullivan for her continued successes, things are really shaping up for her! Contact firstname.lastname@example.org today if you’d like to work with Elizabeth yourself or are interested in THE BOY ON THE COVER.
There’s more news to come about what our WriteMovies winners have been up to, not to mention our pitching work which we’ll report in our Industry Diary. Stay tuned for more updates!
