Objective

Win an A-List Screenwriter Experience and Gain Unparalleled Access.

Break out your scriptwriting software and get to work, because the Industry Insider Screenwriting Contest gives you the unique opportunity to turn one of these three loglines into a solid spec screenplay that could be your ticket to Hollywood success.

Can you turn a provided logline into a killer spec script? Working from one of these loglines, you’re challenged to create up to the first 15 pages of an original script based on the given concept. Make it your own - drama, action, sci-fi... anywhere your imagination takes you.

Logline #1

“When a young archaeologist is selected to a team to excavate a recently-uncovered lost city, an ancient curse is unleashed that will forever change the course of her life.”

Logline #2

“A founding father falls through a time vortex and finds himself trapped in another era of US history.”

Logline #3

“A lost child makes an unlikely friend while trying to find their way back home - but is this new friend there to help or hinder the child's quest?”
