If you've got a great sci-fi or fantasy screenplay, you have an opportunity to win some cash and other great prizes, including introductions to Hollywood's biggest decision makers. Known for their highly successful screenplay contests, ScreenCraft is officially taking submissions for science fiction and fantasy scripts from aspiring screenwriters.
As always, they've got a dream team panel of judges who will be reading your script, including Jonathan Wu (Development Executive at 20th Century Fox, the studio behind The Martian, Avatar, Rise of the Planet of the Apes), Steven Douglas-Craig (Executive Assistant at Sony Pictures, the studio behind Passengers, Ghostbusters, Men in Black), and Meredith Wieck (Development Executive at Lionsgate, the studio behind The Hunger Games, Twilight, Divergent).
The prizes aren't too shabby either. The first place winner gets $2,000, a lifetime WriterDuet Pro license, a phone call with a top literary manager, and circulation and personal recommendation of your script to ScreenCrafts network of 60 Hollywood managers, agents, producers, and development execs.
The rules are simple. You can submit as many scripts as you want from anywhere in the world as long as they're in English and between 75 and 150 pages long. To be eligible, you have to be at least 18 years old and have not received more than $50,000 from professional writing services. Be sure to check out the contest's Rules and Eligibility page before entering.
There is an entry fee of $39 (which is why you can submit as many scripts as you want). The final deadline for the contest is March 30, 2017, so if you're interested, be sure to mark your calendars and get to work on your screenplay!
