The PAGE Awards competition was established by an alliance of Hollywood producers, agents, and development execs. Our goal: to discover the most exciting new scripts by up-and-coming writers from across the country and around the world. And due to the success of our winning writers, the PAGE Awards have rapidly become one of the most important sources for new screenwriting talent within the Hollywood community and worldwide.

One of the most frustrating things about so many screenwriting contests - both for the writers and for the judges - is that scripts of different genres are in competition with each other. But how can you compare a comedy to an action script? How do you rank a family film against a thriller? Moreover, why is it that most contests only reward the screenwriter who writes a powerful drama, while many of the most successful movies made in Hollywood are comedies, thrillers, action flicks and family films?

In order to address this problem, and to encourage a wide variety of screenwriting talent, the PAGE Awards judges present prizes in ten different genre categories:

Family Film
Historical Film
Science Fiction
Short Film
TV Drama Pilot
TV Comedy Pilot

Not only will this year's winning writers receive a total of over $50,000 in cash and prizes, but most importantly, the contest is judged entirely by working professionals in the film and television industry, so all contestants have the opportunity to get their work into the hands of Hollywood professionals currently in search of new talent.

PAGE Award Winner's Original Comedy Series "Spy" Coming to ABC Primetime

The hit U.K. comedy series SPY, created and written by 2008 PAGE Award winner Simeon Goulden, is now headed for ABC primetime. Having just finished its second successful season on Sky 1 HD in the U.K., announced that ABC has ordered an adaptation of the show for the States. Written by series creator Goulden, the new ABC pilot will star Rob Corddry (HOT TUB TIME MACHINE), Mason Cook (SPY KIDS), Ken Jeong (THE HANGOVER), and Paget Brewster (CRIMINAL MINDS).

Simeon Goulden was awarded the 2008 PAGE Gold Prize for his TV Sitcom Pilot CONTROL ALT DELETE, and he was subsequently signed by the Curtis Brown Literary Agency in London. He comments on the impact of his PAGE contest win on his career:

"It's extraordinary for me to think back to 2008 when I won your sitcom competition. I could not have been more unknown - I hadn't written anything much, wasn't represented, had no great prospects. But that win helped get me on the radar and secure representation. And I blink and four years later I find myself the creator of a relatively popular U.K. sitcom that is nominated for an International Emmy and has caught the attention of ABC in the States. I continue to be very grateful to the PAGE Awards. You guys can't manufacture success for people but you can give unknown writers an outlet where their abilities may be recognised and nurtured. And in such a competitive industry, the opportunity you give people to distinguish themselves is invaluable."
