Objective

Discovering new screenwriting talent from around the world.

Shore Scripts Screenwriting Competition is focused on unearthing the best scripts from around the world and getting them into the hands of the producers and production companies who have the ability to get them made.

Patrick Tobin, the writer of CAKE starring Jennifer Aniston is one of our most recent successes. The film is to be released in Jan 2015 by Warner Bros. Have a look at our Alumni here: http://www.shorescripts.com/alumni/

We have the highest calibre of industry judges of any screenwriting competition in the world. Our 21 judges include OSCAR & BAFTA Winners. We also have OVER 100 PRODUCTION COMPANIES & AGENTS attached to read this years best scripts.

  • OSCAR WINNING ACTOR, JEREMY IRONS - THE FRENCH LIEUTENANT'S WOMAN, REVERSAL OF FORTUNE, DIE HARD +
  • OSCAR NOMINATED WRITER, JEFFREY CAINE - THE CONSTANT GARDENER, GOLDENEYE +
  • BAFTA WINNING WRITER, TONY GRISONI - FEAR & LOATHING IN LAS VEGAS, TIDELAND, THE RED RIDING TRILOGY +
  • AFI WINNER & CANNES PALME D'OR NOMINATED DIRECTOR, RAY LAWRENCE - LANTANA, JINDABYNE +
  • DIRECTOR PHYLLIDA LLOYD - MAMMA MIA, THE IRON LADY
  • LIZA MARSHALL - HEAD OF FILM @ RIDLEY SCOTT'S, SCOTT FREE
  • MICHELLE WRIGHT - IN CHARGE OF PRODUCTION @ WORKING TITLE FILMS
  • OSCAR NOMINATED PRODUCER, PAUL WEBSTER - EASTERN PROMISES, SALMON FISHING IN THE YEMEN +
  • OSCAR NOMINATED PRODUCER, STEPHEN WOOLLEY - THE CRYING GAME, INTERVIEW WITH THE VAMPIRE +

We have a strong relationship with the production companies signed up to read the years best scripts. These scripts do not necessarily need to be winning scripts. If we feel a script is suited to a companies slate, we will send it on. This will always be with the writers prior consent, and can be at any point during and after the competition.
