Our 2015 screenplay contest will open for entries in December!

The PAGE International Screenwriting Awards competition was established in the fall of 2003 by an alliance of Hollywood producers, agents, and development executives. Our goal: to discover the most exciting new scripts by up-and-coming writers from across the country and around the world.

Since that time, due to unprecedented success of so many of our winning writers, the PAGE Awards contest has become widely recognized as one of the most important sources for new screenwriting talent within the Hollywood community and worldwide.

OUR MISSION

It’s a Catch 22. While producers and agents always complain about how difficult it is to find good material, talented writers who live outside Los Angeles and have no “connections” within the movie industry find it virtually impossible to penetrate the barriers of the Hollywood system.

The PAGE screenwriting contest was designed to bridge that gap – giving new screenwriters the opportunity to get their scripts into the hands of industry professionals, while also serving as a much-needed resource for Hollywood producers, agents, and studio execs who are searching for quality material.

Over the past ten years, the contest has helped launch the careers of many talented screenwriters and has garnered more Success Stories than any other screenwriting contest in the world! Dozens of our winning writers have signed with top literary representatives, optioned and sold their scripts, landed paid writing assignments, and many now have their films and television shows in production, on the air, and in theaters.
