Welcome to the Hollywood Screenplay Contest

As one of the world's most visible and recognized screenplay competitions, our aim, quite simply, is to discover and recognize the brightest new talent and original voices in film and television storytelling from around the world. We identify emerging talent and place top new screenwriters firmly on the industry’s radar directly in the heart of the motion picture capital of the world.

Winners and finalists in several competition categories receive prizes and benefits including cash and exclusive packages from our industry leading partners, and priceless introductions and meetings with some of Hollywood’s top production companies and talent agencies. Over $45,000 in prizes, and services will be awarded to this year’s winning screenwriters and finalists alone.

Additionally, the Hollywood Screenplay contest offers all applicants the unique opportunity to order a copy of their project’s Official Score Report and Judge Commentary. This professional feedback can be an invaluable tool for identifying the strengths and weaknesses of a script or writing style.

Hollywood is certainly one tough nut to crack, but if you’ve got the skills, we’ll get you the recognition you deserve. From there, where your story goes is up to you.
