The objective of the Screenwriting Master Contest is to award writers for outstanding achievement in screenwriting in both Feature and Short screenplay categories based on six sections: Dialogue, Plot, Characters, Premise, Tone, and Structure. Marketability of a screenplay is not something we take into consideration. We understand that writing is a process, which is why we allow our contestants the ability to submit an updated draft of their screenplay in the event their work is selected to move onto the next round. After all, rewriting is the only way to become a true Screenwriting Master.
Who We Are
The Screenwriting Master Contest is an annual screenplay competition founded in 2018. The panel consists of writers, producers, and directors who have worked on everything from studio features to independent films. The panel will judge the first three rounds of the competition. We then turn the final decisions over to our guest jury members to determine who will become the 2019 Feature & Short “Screenwriting Master.”
The jury announcement will be made before the selection of the Quarterfinalists.
