Email Screenwriting competitions are definitely NOT created equal. Some can gain you access to film-industry insiders and skyrocket your screenwriting career into the next stratosphere. But which screenwriting competitions should you enter?
If you are entering more than one manuscript, you may mail all entries in the same envelope and write one check for the total entry fee; however, each manuscript must have its category indicated in the upper left-hand corner.
You may enter online even if you are paying with a check. All checks will be cashed within 60 days of the competition final deadline. Entry fees are non-refundable.
Any piece posted online, anywhere other than a personal blog, is considered published.
Anything posted online by a third party is considered to be published. Scripts and poems may be either double-or single-spaced; all other manuscripts must be double-spaced. As judging is blind, do not include your name, address, phone number, email address or other identifying information in the upper left-hand corner of the first page.
Entries exceeding the word or page limits will be disqualified. Type the exact word count counting every single word, except the title at the top of the manuscript. Mailed entries that are more than one page in length must be stapled.
