Objective

The PAGE Awards competition was established in the fall of 2003 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 competition has 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, each year the PAGE judges present a total of 31 Awards to new screenwriters in ten different genre categories:

Action/Adventure
Comedy
Drama
Family Film
Historical Film
Science Fiction
Thriller/Horror
Short Film Scripts
TV Drama Pilot
TV Comedy Pilot

This year's winning writers will receive a total of over $50,000 in cash and prizes, plus extensive industry exposure for their winning scripts! 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 scripts into the hands of Hollywood professionals currently in search of new talent.

Deadline/Entry Fees

Expired. Previous Deadline: 05/15/2018

Notification: : Quarter-Finalists announced July 15; Semi-Finalists announced August 15; Finalists announced September 15; Winners announced October 15.

Rules

Awards

$25,000 Grand Prize, PLUS Gold, Silver & Bronze prizes in all ten genre categories. Winners receive cash and gift certificates, as well as extensive publicity and industry exposure for their winning scripts. As a result of the PAGE judging process and publicity, dozens of PAGE Award winners have landed screenwriting assignments, secured representation, signed option agreements on their work, and many now have movies and television shows in production, on the air and in theaters.
