Rules

The Screenplay Competition is only open to writers who do not earn a living writing for television or film. Writers who have had a previous feature screenplay produced and distributed are ineligible. Screenplays must not have been previously optioned, purchased or produced.

The feature length script should be in US Motion Picture industry standard screenplay format. To follow standard guidelines for format, consult any popular screenwriting text for assistance. Font size must be 12 point and in Courier or New Courier type. Scripts must be narrative feature length (approximately 90-130 pages). Pages must be numbered. Pages should be three hole punched, bound between cardstock covers and fastened by two or three metal brads. Pages may be two-sided.

Only the TITLE of the screenplay should appear on the front stock cover (legibly written or typed). A second title page should be included, with TITLE, AUTHOR, AUTHOR'S ADDRESS AND PHONE NUMBER. As all reading is anonymous, author's name must not appear anywhere else on the script.

The following materials are required in your application package:

  • Completed application with our screenplay. Please type or write clearly.
  • A cover letter introducing yourself and your project (e.g., Are you collaborating with anyone on the project? What is the status of the project? How do you envision the realization of the script?).
  • Resume/bio (which include name, address, and telephone) of the writer, and anyone else involved with the project (i.e. director, producer, etc). It is not necessary to have anyone other than the writer attached.
  • A synopsis of the screenplay, no more than 2 pages, double-spaced.
  • A $30.00 non-refundable processing fee. Personal checks, certified checks and money orders only (payable to Filmmaker United).
