With more writer success stories in the past two years than any other competition, the 11th Annual Script Pipeline Screenwriting Contest sets its sights on discovering up-and-coming creative talent and connecting them with top production companies, agencies, and managers. Script Pipeline's position as an industry facilitator has proven remarkably successful in recent years, with numerous writers finding representation and gaining valuable introductions to studio-level producers as a direct result of Pipeline assistance.
Most recently, 2008 contest-winning script Killing Season, starring Robert De Niro, will be released in 2013, and winner Evan Daugherty's spec Snow White and the Huntsman sold to Universal for $3 million, later turning into a box office hit. Script Pipeline partner Jake Wagner (Benderspink) signed 2010 winner Tripper Clancy, who was hired as a comedy writer by 20th Century Fox, and 2012 winner Jason Kaleko.
Last season, over 3,500 screenplays were entered in the Screenwriting and TV Writing competitions combined, making it one of the most-entered contests worldwide.
Beyond prizes, winners are given circulation to approximately 200 qualified industry contacts. All top 20 finalists receive:
• Phone or in-person consultation with a Script Pipeline development executive
• Assistance in polishing the script before circulation
• Personal introductions to active managers and producers
• The opportunity to send other projects to Script Pipeline for review by our Director of Development
The intent is to not only funnel upper-echelon material to the industry, but foster the careers of our finalists long after the contest ends. The 2014 contest opens on September 1st, 2013.
