Spring 2017 Screenwriting Contest – Semi-Finalists Revealed!

Spring 2017 Screenwriting Contest – Semi-Finalists Revealed!

We are delighted to announce the Semi-Finalists for our Spring 2017 International Screenwriting Contest.

Since the Bonus two-week extension in late May, we’ve had a lot of scripts to get through – but it’s been an enjoyable task reading through every one submitted – so thank you to everyone who entered the contest.

At this time, we try to only include scripts that we’re still considering as a potential winner. Having made the Quarter-Finalists shows that a script or writer already has some clear potential, and a Semi-Final place means that with more development this script could become a contender. Keep that in mind as you think about what to do with your script next. With the Summer 2017 Contest having just recently opened, the results should give you a good guide to the current state of your idea, writing and script.

We hope that those who did not make the Semi-Finals will stay in touch with us: very few writers secure an industry commission with their first few screenplays. We have enjoyed our exchanges with you and continue to work hard at making this site more relevant to your careers. Don’t forget that many of our writers got their careers going by using our consulting service: CLICK HERE

If you’ve sent us a revised version of a previous script but it’s still not gained the result you were hoping for, we recommend that you consider getting a consultancy on it from us. That way you can find out what we currently feel is holding your script back. And don’t forget our latest round of contests. You can get free entry to our main contest and the Featured Script of the Month when ordering a consultancy HERE.

So, here are the WriteMovies Spring 2017 International Screenwriting Contest Semi-Finalists, all of whom will get re-evaluated and new eyes as we select our top three Winners to be announced Friday, July 7th.

Spring 2016 Competition

We are delighted to be able to announce the semi-finalists for our Spring 2016 competition! It was a tough task whittling down the semi-finalists from the 52 quarter-finalists, but those who did get through have thoroughly deserved it. All of the scripts featured here go through to our final round for consideration – we’re aiming to reveal the overall winners on August 5th.

If you’ve not made it this time, don’t take this as negative – use it to come back stronger and with something to prove. Don’t forget our Summer Consultancy offers to take your writing and script to the next level. We are offering summer discounts for our Judging Feedback (just $69 – normally $99), and Studio Consulting ($99- normally $129) and Development Notes ($149 – a huge $50 discount from the normal $199!) and we are freezing the price of our Elite Consultancies at $299 – a unique price to get up to an hour of consultancy from a top studio executive!

If you haven’t already, check out our Director of World Wide Development’s special article about What Your Scripts Have Been Telling Us over this period (CLICK HERE to read it and consider how the trends he’s noticed might relate to your script). We’re also compiling other Writing Tips from our reports to publish on the site soon, with general tips for helping your script sing. Don’t forget that many of our writers got their careers going by using our consulting service: CLICK HERE
