Contest News

WeScreenplay Names Contest Winners

Kenlon Clark & William Rubio have been named the Grand Prize Winners of the WeScreenplay Screenwriting Contest for their script, Forged. Novelist Orson Scott Card (Ender's Game) was named the second place winner of the blindly-judged competition for his screenplay MESA 1966, along with Paul Gross for his script about Beethoven, Diminuendo. This year's WeScreenplay Competition attracted almost 1,000 submissions.

Grand Prize Winner
FORGED by Kenlon Clark & William Rubio
Nathan and Rebecca Jacobs are two of the brightest minds in the history of human civilization, but when their son goes missing, Rebecca will introduce a scientific breakthrough that will shock the world, and have the human race questioning their morality, mortality, and the potential limits that should be put on science.

2nd Place Winner
MESA 1966 by Orson Scott Card
***Novelist Orson Scott Card’s script MESA 1966 received the scores with blind reads to earn second place, so we've selected two second place winners. Full explanation here.

2nd Place Winner
DIMINUENDO by Paul Gross
Ludwig Van Beethoven, racing to complete two symphonies, confronts deafness, an oppressive government, unexpected family responsibilities and a failed relationship with a married woman

3rd Place Winner
THE LAST EXECUTION by Tom Vecchio
Dubbed the "mother-in-law from hell," Elizabeth "Ma" Duncan was the last woman executed in California for having her despised daughter-in-law murdered in 1958 because of an uncomfortably close relationship with her attorney son and her fear of being abandoned and alone in old age.

4th Place Winner
THE LEAN by Pearse Lehane
A disgraced lawyer must prevent an innocent man from being convicted of the murder of a police officer in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

5th Place Winner
DARLINGS by Aaron Yeung
