Objective

Diverse Voices is a screenplay contest and lab that strives to encourage stories that are told from perspectives that are often underrepresented in Hollywood today. This includes writers of color, women writers, writers with disabilities, writers over 40, writers in the LGBTQ+ community, and any other voices that have historically been ignored by Hollywood.

The Diverse Voices competition includes an in-person Screenwriting Lab experience in Los Angeles with the first ever Diverse Voices Lab. Four winners will be flown out to LA for mentorship and meetings with industry professionals.

Every entry gets free, written feedback!

Awards

Past winners have signed with Heroes and Villains, Industry Entertainment, and Gotham Group! The contest has helped raise over $12,000 for non-profits.

Top scripts will be read by our jury which includes the writer of ROSEWOOD, managers from Zero Gravity and Circle of Confusion, and Tribeca and Sundance screening short creator Jesse Atlas.

The Grand Prize Winner and some category winners as determined by the jury will be promoted to producers, agents, and managers through e-mail distribution from WeScreenplay and all Finalists will be publically recognized through our website and e-mail lists.

The Grand Prize Winner and the First-Place Winner in each category will be invited for a Diverse Voices Lab in Los Angeles for hands on development with industry executives, WeScreenplay staff, writers, and each other.
