Rules

Basic guidelines:

  • Contact information (name, email address, etc.) preferred, but not required, on the cover page.
  • PDF preferred, but will accept Final Draft, Celtx, and other file formats.
  • Script should be a feature-length screenplay. All genres are allowed, and there are no length requirements. If it's a multi-part series, please send only the first part.
  • No limit on the number of entries. Each entry is a separate fee.

  • Previous Script Pipeline competition entrants welcome to enter again and are guaranteed fresh reads from a new judge. Former finalists are not allowed to enter the same script again.
  • All rights to the material remain with the entrant, whether they place as a finalist or not. It is, however, recommended you copyright your material.
  • Open to writers worldwide.
Some general rules:
  • The script entered must not have been produced in its full form (shorts based on the script are fine).
