All deadlines are at 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time.
This fee includes entry in one Genre Category. Scripts submitted in the Short Film category (30 pages or less) will automatically receive a $5 discount off the entry fee.
You can also add any of these options to your entry:
If you’d like to have your script reviewed by more than one Judge in the First Round of competition, you may submit your script in up to two additional categories and have up to two additional Judges read your script for $15 each.
If your screenplay crosses genres (for example, if it’s both a Comedy and a Family Film), you can ask the Judges to consider your script in different genre categories. Or if your script fits only one genre, you can ask all the Judges to consider your script in the same category.
If you’d like to find out what your Judge thinks of your script and see your contest scores, you can order Judge’s Feedback along with your contest entry and your First Round Judge will take the extra time to write you several pages of thoughts and ideas about your script, along with an explanation of how your script scored and why. The fee for Judge’s Feedback is $89.
(Our Judges write Feedback for you on the day they read your script, while it’s fresh in their minds; therefore, if you want Judge’s Feedback, please understand that you must request it when you enter the contest. It cannot be added at a later time.)
Would you like to enter more than one script in this year’s contest?
Submit them all on the same entry form and you will receive a $10 discount off each additional submission. (Scripts submitted on separate entry forms will each be charged the full entry fee applicable on that submission date.)
Since our Judges prefer to read scripts online, we ask you to upload your screenplay through our online entry form, preferably as an Adobe Acrobat .pdf file. You can download Adobe Acrobat free of charge at adobe.com.
If for some reason you cannot convert your script to a .pdf file, we can also accept Final Draft, Microsoft Word, and Text files. Please make sure that the file you send us is not password protected or secured.
You may pay your entry fee with a credit card, debit card, bank transfer, or PayPal account, or with a check or money order (must be in U.S. funds).
