Objective

Sunvale Screenplay Contest was developed to promote undiscovered screenwriters who are looking for their opportunity to become produced and see their work on the screen.

Going to our second season, we accept features, TV pilots and short screenplays in 5 different categories (Action/Adventure, Horror/thriller, Drama, Comedy, Female screenwriters).

The Grand Prize Winner will get a Proof of Concept film of their screenplay produced by award-winning team according to top industry standards, as well as development notes.

All the 5 category winners will also get development notes and free entry to the next Sunvale contest cycle (you can submit the same script or a different script).

If you want to see you work produced at the highest quality standards, Sunvale Screenplay Contest is the choice for you!
