Launch Pad Pilots Competition

CONTEST DESCRIPTION

The sole objective of the Launch Pad Competition is to recognize writers who have the passion and talent deserving of a professional Hollywood career, and with our track record we have shown that we can do just that. That is why the Launch Pad Competitions have led to 63 writers being signed in just 18 months! 9 writers have been staffed. 27 projects set up generating 3 bidding wars. Welcome to the 2015 Launch Pad Pilots Competition. Get ready because this year we are pulling out all the stops.

PRIZES

  • The Top 40 Quarter-Finalists will be announced on The Launch Pad website and The Tracking Board website.
  • Winners' scripts will be offered to our esteemed judging panel to be read as well as circulated to industry professionals.

Rules

  • All scripts must be submitted with a cover page containing ONLY the script title, without any of the writer(s) names or discernable marks.
  • All scripts MUST BE submitted as a PDF.
  • All scripts must be under 70 pages (any pilot with more than 70 pages will be disqualified).
  • Do not submit any form of a story bible or pitch document with your pilot.
  • NO specs of pre-existing shows are allowed. All submissions must be your own original work, story and characters. Any submissions of existing shows 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.
  • Pilots 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.
