Feedback Type Description

Rules

  • All scripts must be submitted with a cover page containing ONLY the script title, without any of the writer(s) names or discernible marks.
  • All scripts MUST BE submitted as a PDF.
  • All feature scripts must be under 130 pages (any feature with more than 130 pages will be disqualified).
  • Do not submit any form of a story bible or pitch document with your script.
  • NO specs of pre-existing shows or films are allowed. All submissions must be your own original work, story and characters. Works based on the biographies of actual historical figures, living or dead, are accepted, as are adaptations of works in the public domain. However, any script adapted from an existing property not owned by the screenwriter submitting the work may be subject to disqualification. Any submissions of existing shows or films that the writer does not own will be disqualified.
  • Scripts with multiple writers are allowed (however, all entry fees must be paid under one account).
  • All scripts must be the sole property of the writer(s).
  • All scripts will be read at least twice to ensure the best judgment of your work. All scripts will also be read blind, with no names, or title pages allowed. We choose this option so that each script is judged by the work, and the words alone.
  • Features with a prior option are allowed, but at the time of submission and for the duration of the contest, must remain the writer's property.
  • The only scripts not allowed to be entered are those which have already sold, have previously earned our "TB Recommends" honors, or received a top 25 placement in a previous Launch Pad competition.
  • Writers may submit as many scripts as they like.
  • Each script may only be entered one time. Once a script has been submitted, there are absolutely no substitutions of pages, drafts, or scripts overall.
  • TB and all judges/readers will utilize whatever criteria they deem appropriate in deciding a winner.
  • All scripts will remain the property of the writer(s) throughout the contest (at no point will anyone from the judge's panel, or TB ever attach themselves to your work without your consent).
  • Entrants may be contacted as a result of the contest by TB, the judging panel or other industry professionals in regards to representation, production, sale and/or option of the entered work.
  • Entrants are under no obligation to sell their work or otherwise attach themselves to representation in any form.
  • General script entries will not receive feedback, however, you can opt to upgrade and receive feedback on your script submission.
  • Feedback MUST be purchased with submission order and cannot be added on later.
