SHORT FILM SCRIPT CONTESTS

During late Spring and Summer we often run short script contests. There are cash prizes, a new subject every month, and all genres and styles are accepted. The idea is to get your creativity flowing as you write a new script to a brief within seven days.

SCREENWRITING GOLDMINE AWARDS

Some awards bring you prestige or prize money. But not many put your work in front of 35 influential industry figures. We do, because we want to give you more than great prizes – we want to start your career.

If your screenplay still needs a little polish, we can help you develop your craft. In particular, our video course will help you perfect your draft – this simple, step-by-step course is popular with new and experienced writers alike.
