Screenwriting competitions are tried and true when it comes to planting a foot firmly in the appropriate door, so remember to check back often (every Monday) for the most up-to-date info on all the weekly winners and deadlines!
Contest News, Updates, and Announcements:
Last weekend, we successfully launched our first ever Screenwriting Virtual Summit beginning with two free days of lectures and interviews with Oscar-winning filmmakers and Emmy-winning TV writers. For more information on the summit, including details on our all-access year-round pass, click here!
ScreenCraft and Santa Monica-based media financier BondIt Media Capital have announced Cowboys & Pakistanis, written by Farraz Khan, as the recipient of their Spring 2017 Short Film Production Fund. Original and ambitious, the script tells a coming-of-age story that blends romantic comedy elements with political satire.
