Objective

MISSION - To provide a platform focused on promoting and encouraging diverse voices and stories. We're looking for writing from perspectives – through the author or characters – that are underrepresented in Hollywood.

GIVING BACK - For every entry, we are donating $3 to Books For Kids to help children from all starts in life have a chance to become storytellers. Books for Kids' mission is "to promote literacy among all children with a special emphasis on low-income and at-risk preschool aged children."

PROMISE - We promise to be transparent and fair by giving all writers TWO sets of scores with each entry. All finalist scripts will receive four sets of scores before we select a winner to limit subjectivity and promote the best writing.

EXPOSURE - Winning scripts will not only receive development notes and cash prizes, but the winner will be sent to two dozen production and management companies. We want to see these stories told!

***ALL FINALISTS: All finalists will be asked to answer in about 250 words how their voice, experience, or story represents a new and diverse perspective for Hollywood. WeScreenplay is specifically looking to encourage and promote underrepresented stories and writers.

The contest is looking to encourage and promote either:

1.) Writers who have been shown to be under-represented by the WGA diversity report: minority writers, women writers, and writers over 40.

or

2.) Stories starring characters that are generally untold because of the misconception that they don't perform well: minorities, women (especially in traditionally "male" roles), women over 40, LGBTQ members, senior citizens, faith-driven characters, or any stories that don't appear on the normal studio slate.

If a script or writer hits either of these two categories, they qualify. We will consider all scripts and stories, but once the finalists are announced, those who have made it to that level will be asked to answer: "How does your voice, experience, characters, or story represent a new and diverse perspective for Hollywood?" As long as that question can be answered in a way that fits in one of the above categories, the script will be considered to win the Grand Prize.
