The competition is starting to really heat up as we get closer to announcing the winner of the Winter 2020 Screenwriting Contest… and today is Semi-Finals day!
In just a couple of weeks time, we’ll be revealing the winner of our $2000 Grand Prize and top three scripts that will receive development and pitching to industry from us. Don’t forget that if you want to win these kind of prizes but didn’t enter this time, our Sci-Fi and Fantasy Award 2020 and Summer 2020 Screenwriting Contest are both now open for submissions.
As the Covid-19 outbreak affects more and more of the world in escalating ways, we’re determined to equip all writers for the times to come: click HERE to see our Director’s thoughts about how the world has changed, and our commitment to helping you all through this. We’ve published our guide for writers to make the best of the situation, for everyone’s sakes – CLICK HERE to make this time yours. We’re seeing significant changes in what the industry is looking for and planning for, and we build this into our judging and decision making as we look to take YOU forward.
But for now, congratulations to everyone who has made it this far. Every script that got through to the semi-finals has done well to stand out from the crowd – whether with a clever concept, an engaging story, or characters with depth – and proven its quality.
