The 2017 PAGE International Screenwriting Awards contest is now cloased for entries. Our sincere thanks to everyone who entered the competition! This fall, our Judges will once again present over $50,000 in Cash and Prizes to some of the most talented new screenwriters from across the country and around the world, and like so many our past winners, many of these writers will go on to build highly successful careers in the industry.
The PAGE Awards competition is widely regarded as one of the world’s top sources for new screenwriting talent, both within the Hollywood community and internationally. Each year, some of Hollywood’s most influential producers, agents, managers, and development execs judge the contest and read our winning scripts, and as a result, dozens of our winning writers have secured representation, landed script assignments, signed option agreements on their work, and many now have movies and television shows in production, on the air, and in theaters. You can read more about them on the Success Stories page of our website.
It’s important to note that the PAGE Awards is a global screenwriting contest and you do not need to live in Los Angeles to win.
Just take a look at where all of our previous winners are based:
We look forward to discovering even more talented new writers this year!
