Screenplay & Screenwriting Contests

Screenwriting Contests are competitions in which writers submit completed feature-length or short screenplays to be judged on different story elements. Prizes from screenwriting contests can be anything from receiving notes, all the way to taking meetings with agents and managers. While there are now many available, the best screenwriting contests usually offer a yearly monetary fellowship and or meetings with industry professionals and often lead to representation if a screenplay becomes a finalist in that competition.
