Objective

Stage 32 Happy Writers screenwriting contests are quickly becoming one of the most respected and popular contests in the industry! Why, you ask? It might be because we are securing the best executive judges in town, or... It might be because nearly every contest winner has been signed or had their script optioned (check out our success stories!), or...

It might be because our contest winners get unparalleled access to our roster of over 450 industry executives who work directly with Stage 32 and the Stage 32 Happy Writers!

It is all of these reasons (and more!) that make the Stage 32 Happy Writers contests the premium choice for you and your writing career! Our most recent winners of our Stage 32 Happy Writers feature contest, Jenna Palermo and Brittni Brown, have had meetings all over town with executives from SONY, Lionsgate, Universal, Warner Bros, 3 Arts Entertainment, Gotham Group and more!!

In our quest to make sure every screenwriter gets the exposure they deserve, and by popular demand, we created our Annual Comedy Contest for our comedy writers! From current comedy films such as TRAINWRECK and VACATION to classic comedy franchises such as GHOSTBUSTERS and AMERICAN PIE, there is always a marketplace for feature comedy. In addition, current television shows such as VEEP and SILICON VALLEY, as well as classic syndicates such as SEINFELD and EVERYBODY LOVES RAYMOND make us aware that true comedy never goes out of style. We are looking for the next voices that make us laugh.

We want to give the freshest comedic voices a shot at getting heard by people who can make a difference in your career.
