Event Details

The 12th Annual Screenwriting Challenge is a competition open to screenwriters around the world.  There are 3 rounds of competition.  In the 1st Round (April 24 - May 2), writers are placed randomly in heats and are assigned a genre, subject, and character assignment (see examples of past assignments here).  Writers have 8 days to write an original short screenplay no longer than 12 pages.  The judges choose a top 5 in each heat to advance to the 2nd Round (June 18-21) where writers receive new assignments, only this time they have just 3 days to write an 8 page (maximum) short screenplay.  Judges choose a top 25 from the 2nd Round to advance to the 3rd and final round of the competition where writers are challenged to write a 5 page (maximum) screenplay in just 24 hours (July 24-25).  A panel of judges review the final round submissions and overall winners are selected.  Sound like fun?  Join the competition above...
