By August 1, 2022October 5th, 2022No Comments

Thank you to all of the incredible writers who entered WeScreenplay Shorts Contest this year!

As you know — WeScreenplay believes that the best way for writers to grow is through feedback. That is why WeScreenplay provides free, written feedback with every single competition entry. We are glad to hear from so many of you how helpful the notes were and excited to see WeScreenplay writers are improving all the time!

We are thrilled to advance entries to the Quarterfinalist round for another read. A huge congratulations to every writer advancing!

Stay tuned for the Semifinalist announcement on August 25th! If you are interested in hearing the next time this competition opens, subscribe for updates here.

We also want to acknowledge all of the strong scripts that did not advance. If your script is not on this list, it does not at all mean that our judges didn’t enjoy the read – in fact, we’re confident some of the scripts not advancing will bring their writers success in the very near future. Thank you for entering your script and always keep writing.

Without further ado, the 2022 WeScreenplay Shorts Contest Quarterfinalists can be found on Coverfly here or below.
