16th Annual Scriptapalooza Screenplay Competition

The Write Brothers’ annual screenplay contest, Scriptapalooza, is back, and with “…over $50,000 in cash and software prizes”, it’s worth a look for all you aspiring writers.

The catch is their deadlines are rapidly approaching:

First deadline is March 3, 2014– $50
Regular deadline is April 14, 2014 — $55
FINAL deadline is April 21, 2014 — $60

The prizes are quite numerous, and simply being one of the 30 finalists nets you access to producers, copies of Movie Magic Screenwriter and Dramatica Writer’s Dreamkit  and a 1 year of International Screenwriters’ Association Connect Membership. You can see more on each prize level below.

You can find out more about Scriptapalooza below, as well as on their website at www.scriptapalooza.com. You can also submit an application here: scriptapalooza.wufoo.com

This year we are awarding over $50,000 in cash and software prizes. Our First Place Winner will receive $10,000 Cash and all our 7 Genre Winners will receive $500 Cash.

Every script that is entered into Scriptapalooza is read by either a producer, manager or agent.  We do not use “readers” or “regular people” because they cannot do anything with your script.  We go right to the source – a producer, manager or agent, they can make a difference, they can option your script, buy it, set-up a meeting or go straight to the studio with it.

Now when you enter Scriptapalooza, you have the opportunity to get feedback. Your feedback will include a logline, a synopsis and your feedback totaling 4-5 pages of notes. Get the best feedback in the industry. But the most important prize of all is that Scriptapalooza will promote, pitch and push the Semifinalists and higher for an entire year. We have relationships with producers, managers and agents that are actively looking for material.
