Named a Top 2017 Contest

 

Winners sent to Managers and Producers.

Past winners of WeScreenplay's competitions have signed with management companies like Heroes and Villains, BelieveLand, and Pollinate. Many winners and finalists are in active development with producers and even studios. Others have gone on to self-produce, win exclusive fellowships, and sign book deals.

We believe the successes are a combination of talented writers who we can help with a little extra exposure for their amazing work. There is a long list of managers and producers who've requested to check out the winners of the WeScreenplay Feature Competition, including Treehouse Pictures, BelieveLand Management, Good Fear, Bellevue, Bad Hat Harry, Echo Lake, Cross Creek, and many more. Check out the full list on the WeScreenplay  Feature Competition page.
 
 

Check out this year's incredible jury:

 
Dave Green, Director of Earth to Echo and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, which hit theaters in summer 2016. His advice and insight as a visual director will be invaluable to writers of all genres.
 
Juliet Berman, is a Creative Executive at Treehouse Pictures (ALL IS LOST, THAT AWKWARD MOMENT). From award-winning dramas to star-studded comedies, Juliet has worked on a wide range of feature films and knows the industry from the indie-level all the way up to studio films.
 
Le'Ander Nicholson is a literary manager at BelieveLand who signed the 2016 winner Kenlon Clarke. He specializes in developing writers and has a broad network across the industry having worked for production companies and top 5 Hollywood agencies.
 
Melissa Azizi is an executive at Pretty Pictures (THE DANISH GIRL, KINSEY). Melissa has worked as an executive in the industry for years and is now branching out to produce and develop films of her own.
 

WeScreenplay Competition Promise

WeScreenplay is focused on providing professional screenwriting competitions that help all writers who enter. This is why we share our judges' scorecards, have regular communication, and hit our deadlines. No other contest operates with as much transparency. Finally, we provide affordable notes options starting at $39 so that every entrant can get specific feedback on their script. This type of contest management is why MovieBytes has called us a Top Screenplay Contest for the past two years.

We also focus on aggressively promoting our winners. In the past year, we've celebrated Leon Chills signing with Heroes and Villains, Odin Ozdil signing with Pollinate Entertainment, Kenlon Clark signing with BelieveLand Management, Dominique Holmes signing with Heroes and Villains, and dozens more writers getting their foot in the door with options, meetings, and script development. We want to focus on you and your dream projects next.
