The PAGE Awards competition was established by an alliance of Hollywood producers, agents, and development execs. Our goal: to discover the most exciting new scripts by up-and-coming writers from across the country and around the world. And due to the success of our winning writers, the PAGE Awards have rapidly become one of the most important sources for new screenwriting talent within the Hollywood community and worldwide.
One of the most frustrating things about so many screenwriting contests - both for the writers and for the judges - is that scripts of different genres are in competition with each other. But how can you compare a comedy to an action script? How do you rank a family film against a thriller? Moreover, why is it that most contests only reward the screenwriter who writes a powerful drama, while many of the most successful movies made in Hollywood are comedies, thrillers, action flicks and family films?
In order to address this problem, and to encourage a wide variety of screenwriting talent, the PAGE Awards judges present prizes in ten different genre categories:
TV Drama Pilot
TV Comedy Pilot
Not only will this year's winning writers receive a total of over $50,000 in cash and prizes, but most importantly, the contest is judged entirely by working professionals in the film and television industry, so all contestants have the opportunity to get their work into the hands of Hollywood professionals currently in search of new talent.
Notification: Quarter-Finalists announced July 15; Semi-Finalists announced August 15; Finalists announced September 15; Winners announced October 15.
