WriteMovies Romance and Comedy Award

CONTEST DESCRIPTION

Celebrating great writing across all genres… The second edition of the WriteMovies Romance and Comedy Award is open for submissions!


One thing’s clear: people need cheering up after the events of this year. Romance and comedy are the two main genres that can do that, and producers are going to be looking for these kind of projects at the moment – making this the perfect time for this award.

More than anything, we’re looking for scripts with a strong premise, an engaging story, characters with depth, and excellent commercial potential. The writer should have strong concepts and execute them to the max.

The winner of this award will receive:
- Guaranteed pitching to industry
- Two sets of Development Notes to help take their script to the next level
- Further advice to fine tune your script from our experts

All submissions for the WriteMovies Romance and Comedy Award also automatically get free entry to our Winter 2021 Screenwriting Contest, with the opportunity to win the Grand Prize of $3500 and many other bonuses - find out more here: https://writemovies.com/winter-2021-screenwriting-contest/
