First 10 Pages Script Contest

Final Deadline: 02/29/2016

Recognizing excellence in Feature Film and TV writing in all genres. Why the "First 10 Pages"? A writer only has the first 10 pages to grab an executive, producer, manager, agent, or talent and hook them into reading the entire screenplay. If the first 10 pages fail to capture the reader, it doesn’t matter how brilliant the rest of the script is, you have lost the opportunity to have your screenplay considered.
