Objective

Our winners will be champions and we will work to champion our winners. Our motto is "Winning is just the beginning."''

Win our competition and we will prepare you for what you can expect in Hollywood by giving you a team of mentors who will champion you, your current script or even your next script to a higher level and to help you achieve the goal of becoming a working screenwriter in Hollywood.
