Rules

The scripts need to meet all the requirements listed below (please read before you submit!!!):
  • 60 to 100 pages (we do accept scripts that are over 100 pages but we highly recommend you revise the script to be under 100 pages before you submit)
  • Needs to be horror or thriller, including subgenres such as:
    • Slasher
    • Supernatural
    • Psychological
    • Contained sci-fi
    • Comedy
    • Other (as accepted by the judges)
  • Needs to take place 90% in ONE LOCATION (large house, hotel, camp, forest, or desert but 1-4 rooms/sublocations within the main location are allowed)!
  • Limited cast (ideally 5 or less main characters but again, we are flexible if other criteria are met)
  • Minimal SFX, VFX and makeup (so vampire stories might work, zombies and werewolves most likely not).
  • Low-budget

Any stories that can be revised to meet the above requirements and our budget will be considered as well as early drafts/treatments/shorts as long as the story fits the criteria and the writer will be able to provide full draft in 1 month.

Please do not submit scripts that need a complicated set, large crowd scenes, or other expensive elements unless you are ready to revise the script to meet the above requirements.

Feel free to contact us if you have any questions!

If you have more than one script that fits the criteria, you can submit subsequent scripts for 50% off after your first submission (please contact us to get discount code).

  • Winning writer(s) need to own all rights to the script and sign an option to purchase agreement.
  • Winning writer(s) grant the producers and directors of Mad Wife Productions full creative control (if you do not know what this means, please email us before you submit).
  • Except where prohibited by law, submission of written materials constitutes each entrant’s consent to Mad Wife Productions and its agents’ and sponsor’s use of entrants’ names, likenesses, photographs, and/or personal information for promotional purposes in any media, worldwide, without further payment or consideration. This includes audio-visual information pertaining to the in-house development, analysis, and coverage in relation to writer’s submitted works. All uses of any entrants’ information will at all times be in accordance with our Privacy Policy.
  • All fees submitted are non-refundable.

You agree to release and hold harmless Mad Wife Productions, its subsidiary, parent and affiliated companies, prize contributors, judges, screenplay analysts, sponsors, and any other organizations responsible for administering, advertising or promoting your submission of material, and every one of their respective members, directors, employees, agents and representatives (collectively, the “Released Parties”) past and present from and against any and all claims, expenses, and liability, including but not limited to damages and negligence to property and persons, including but not limited to invasion of privacy, defamation, slander, libel, violation of right of publicity, copyright, infringement of trademark or other intellectual property rights relating to a participant’s submission of materials and/or acceptance or use or misuse of prize; provided however, that such release will not apply to any commercial exploitation of the script by a Released Party in violation of your rights under applicable copyright law; and (c) indemnify, defend and hold harmless the Mad wife Productions and its sponsor, agents and employees from and against any and all claims, expenses, and liabilities (including reasonable attorneys fees) relating to an entrant’s participation in the Contest and/or entrant’s use or misuse of Prize.
