Objective

The Australian International Screenwriting Awards (AISA) is a screenwriting competition committed to the discerning selection, recognition, and professional growth of emerging screenwriters from all over the world.

Australia, our home base, is a perfect merging of big cities and abundant nature. From big waves and rainforests to mountains and the massive outback. You can be diving the Great Barrier Reef one moment and checking out a contemporary art exhibit the next.

In this huge country that also happens to be the world’s smallest continent, you think you know what to expect but adventure and diversity lie around every sun-drenched corner. Each city is distinctly stimulating, ideal for a people so vigorously experimental, readily immersing themselves into the arts, the ocean, a sensory overload of biodiversity, a thriving cafe culture, or an intriguing cinematic history.

Awards

The grand prize winner will be given the privilege of a personal introduction to a top industry executive in either Australia (Sydney or Gold Coast) or the United States (Los Angeles or New York), depending on the winner’s home country or ultimate preferred city where they would like to work professionally. We want to support you and your goals and will choose an industry representative that is best suited for you no matter which city you prefer to thrive in.

This introduction will include a one-hour phone consult with a working producer or reputable talent manager regarding their script. Our top two finalists will also each receive personal introductions to industry executives that will include a 15-minute private phone consult regarding their submissions.

We want to see your work produced, and so our grand prize winner will also receive an InkTip membership in order to get their work read by as many working producers as possible. The winner will have their logline featured in InkTip Magazine so they can promote themselves and their script to InkTip’s entire network of producers, managers, and agents. InkTip Magazine is sent to over 15,000 producers and representatives.

Companies who are InkTip members include: ABC, Anonymous Content, APA, CBS Films, HBO Films, ICM, Paradigm, Paramount Pictures, Hallmark Channel, FX, Universal, WME, Echo Lake, Zero Gravity, Bad Robot, 20th Century Fox, and many more. Producers have made more than 315 films from scripts and writers found through InkTip.
