Objective

The Contest Of Contest Winners joined the 2016 Sunscreen Film Festival (Florida/Los Angeles) to bring increased visibility and networking opportunities to winners! And this year 2017 the festivals and the contest will be putting writers with filmmakers in new ways!!

There are hundreds of screenwriting competitions, but which screenplay from among the winners of all of these quality competitions is the best of the best?

The Contest of Contest Winners (CCW) answers that question and shines the spotlight on many accomplished, award-winning screenplays in what amounts to a definitive last review of the elite.

The CCW Winner and Finalists will be presented at the Sunscreen Film Festival in Los Angeles and will meet with attending literary agents, producers and filmmakers including 30-minute Skype sessions with producing and management pros later.

ALL CCW entrants receive TWO EXPERT EVALUATIONS from writer-judges on their scripts (Development Coverage and Reader score sheet coverage typically valued at more than $500.00)
