Objective

Any story - great or small, western or futuristic, preschool or adult - can be told through the power of animation.

Animation is fast becoming one of Hollywood's favorite and most versatile mediums for storytelling, and there's no mystery as to why. It is an ever-evolving, perennial format that guarantees to become even more important as streamers fill their libraries. That's why Creative Screenwriting wants to champion the best and boldest animated features and tv pilots that you have to offer.

Do you have a live action script that could be produced in the world of animation? We want to read it. No genre nor intended age group is off limits.

Diverse voices are encouraged to apply; we strive to amplify underrepresented and marginalized voices. Show More
