Since 1999, WriteMovies’ screenwriting contests guarantee to develop our winners’ projects at our own expense and pitch them to producers with the power to make them happen. Our contests are designed to show you exactly how well your script currently competes in the market, and a clear ladder to success.
Our results – with up to 50+ Quarter-Finalists, 25+ Semi-Finalists, 7+ Honorable Mentions and 3 winners – show you where your project currently sits in comparison to others, and our studio-quality tiers of script mentoring and script consultancy show you its potential and how to remove the obstacles to that success without compromising on the things that matter most to you about your script.
Because we’re serious about selling our winners’ scripts, and we can prove we have the contacts and meetings to put them in front of decision makers at the heart of the international entertainment industry, our contests are designed to give all writers a clear sense of where their script currently stands in the market – and the clear answers you need about all that your project could achieve and how to fulfil it.
As the impact of Coronavirus sweeps across the globe, we’ve reshaped our packages to give the best possible support to writers, whatever challenges they’re facing right now:
- Buy a consultancy report and we’ll work to get it to you as quickly as possible – and then you can resubmit your new draft of the same script before the end of the contest, free of charge, once it’s ready.
- Discounts for multiple mentoring packages: if you buy a second script report from us, you’ll receive a $10 discount, and if you buy a third, the discount goes up to $20. That means you can get Studio Coverage for your third script for as little as $79, or Development Notes for as little as $129!
- We’re re-establishing payment methods in multiple currencies in the English-speaking world so you can pay in the most efficient or tax-relevant currency for you.
