Writers are challenged to create short screenplays 5 pages or less based on a genre, location and object assignment and accumulate points based on their placement in each round of the competition.  Every writer that registers will compete in at least 2 challenges, and writers can compete in as many as 4 challenges based on their placement in each round.  Judges feedback will be provided to the writers for every story submitted and a special peer review forum will be created where writers can comment on each other's stories.  For a detailed description of how the competition works, click here.



Registration is now closed.  There will be plenty more exciting writing competitions, so make sure to sign up for our mailing list (bottom right of this page) for competition announcements.  Good luck to the participating writers!  Click here to view the standings.
