Get Noticed by Industry Pros

The Scriptation Showcase is the screenwriting competition that circulates winners’ scripts to Hollywood directors, showrunners, and producers. 15 scripts get featured for one year in Scriptation, the script app used on thousands of film and TV productions.

All script contest Finalists get to participate in a group Zoom with professional film and TV writers; Top Prize winners get Finalist prizes plus a one-one-one meeting with a film and TV executive to discuss their script; and the Grand Prize winner gets Top Prize and Finalist prizes plus a featured story and year-round promotion within Scriptation’s community.

Unrivaled Exposure

Best Screenplay Contest Spotlight

Never before has a screenwriting competition made your script so accessible to working industry professionals. The same directors, showrunners, and producers that make your favorite movies and shows now have an opportunity to discover your work.

Annotated Feedback

Best Screenplay Competition Annotate

Script coverage doesn’t give your story the complete story. Scriptation annotated feedback gives you PDF annotations on your script so you can see what the reader was thinking when they were thinking it. This is how screenplay competition feedback was meant to be.

Professional Readers

Writer Founded
