Objective

To help launch the careers of undiscovered screenwriters and give unprecedented access to studio-level executives.

Deadline/Entry Fees

Expired. Previous Deadline: 05/30/2020

Notification: July 1, 2020

Rules

Basic guidelines:

  • Cover page should include the title only. Remove any contact information (name, email address, etc.) on the script. Logline and genre on the title page as well is preferred, but not required. If contact info is left on the script, we'll adjust the file accordingly--the writer will not be disqualified.
  • Co-writers are allowed. Only one writer needs to register.
  • PDF preferred, but will accept Final Draft, Celtx, and other file formats.
  • Script should be a feature-length screenplay. All genres are allowed, and there are no length requirements. If it's a multi-part series, please send only the first part.
  • No limit on the number of entries. Each entry is a separate fee.
  • Simultaneous submissions are of course allowed (i.e. you can enter other screenwriting contests with the same script).
  • Previous Script Pipeline competition entrants welcome to enter again and are guaranteed fresh reads from a new judge. Former finalists are not allowed to enter the same script again.
  • All rights to the material remain with the entrant, whether they place as a finalist or not. It is, however, recommended you copyright your material.
  • Electronic submissions only.

Some general rules:

  • The script entered must not have been produced in its full form (shorts based on the script are fine).
  • Must be at least eighteen (18) years of age at time of entry.
  • You have not sold or optioned any film screenplay to any entity or individual greater than $50,000.

Awards

  • Grand Prize Winner: $50,000 - $25,000 each for Screenwriting and TV Writing
  • Runners-up: $5,000 - $2,500 each for Screenwriting and TV Writing
  • Introductions to managers, producers, agents, directors, and others searching for screenplays
  • Long-term script circulation to industry and continual guidance connecting with companies
  • Development assistance from Script Pipeline's senior execs
  • Additional script reviews and consideration of other material for industry exposure
