Women Who Write in Film

CONTEST DESCRIPTION

We are Women Who Write and our goal is to be the world’s foremost screenwriting competition for women. We want to support female writers and producers of all shapes and sizes, but we don’t just want to support female writers. We want to be a springboard for your success. We want to forge a festival that will discover and recognize the best emerging female talent and the most original female voices from around the world. We will go to the ends of the Earth to find the best new female talent and then do whatever it takes to put the top new female screenwriters firmly on the entertainment industry’s radar by designating them as finalists and winners in our Beverly Hills based competition in the heart of the motion picture industry.

Winners and finalists will receive $250 in cash as well as prizes, and services from our industry leading partners like InkTip and Final Draft as well as industry exposure and submission to some of New York and Hollywood’s biggest production companies, agents, and talent managers. In fact, we promise to deliver our winners’s scripts to our industry list of over 50 production companies, talent representatives, and industry executives.

While we do love women, we have to say we accept scripts from writers of all shapes and sizes from all background and all countries. You can be of any sex, any ethnicity and be of any sexual orientation. You do not even have to be a woman to enter our contest so you don’t have to worry about whether or not you were born a woman or identify as a woman, we’re happy to embrace you as the talented person that you are and if your script is good, we’ll give you the recognition you deserve. We do, however, prefer scripts about women, the issues facing women, and stories about strong female characters that inspire women to be ever stronger versions of themselves. But it doesn’t have to be about women. So if you’re a great female writer who wrote the next “Usual Suspects” or “Pulp Fiction” submit it so we can get you the exposure you need. Your script simply needs to be good to be accepted in our competition.
