We are delighted to announce the Semi-Finalists for our Winter 2016 International Screenwriting Contest.
We are proud to bring you the 26 Semi-Finalists for our Winter 2016 Screenwriting Competition. During Awards season it’s been fascinating comparing their different prospects – how these scripts would fare commercially and whether they could compete for awards themselves.
In what has been the strongest pool of contestants for a while, it was tough narrowing down the entries from the 54 Quarter-finalists. On another day, in another competition, any of these Quarter-Finalists could definitely have made it through to the Semis. So this is a strong group of scripts and so don’t be too disheartened if yours has dropped out of the race now. Use this as inspiration and something to spur you on in your fight to become a top writer!
Very few writers secure an industry commission with their first few screenplays. We’re continuing to sharpen up the website to offer more insights, resources and a nicer visual experience – click here to see.
