Objective

After the success of our 2016 contests, we are delighted to announce the WriteMovies Spring 2017 Screenwriting Competition! We took a careful review this time of what writers value most about our competitions and how we can ensure that every submission gets several script professionals' oversight before any judgment is passed. We've also suspended entries for French and German language scripts until we can improve our marketing presence in those languages.

So now there's$1500 available in prize money plus over $3000 in script development available from us - so that we can promise to continue to develop and promote three winners to the top of the international film industry, through the writing company with the strongest track record of delivering success to its winning entries – us. Hundreds of writers have found representation and many have had their scripts produced through our competitions since 1999. Screenplays, teleplays and pilot scripts are all welcomed.
