Thank you to all of the incredible writers who entered the WeScreenplay Shorts Contest this year!
We are thrilled to advance entries to the Semifinalist round for another read. A huge congratulations to every writer advancing. Stay tuned for the Finalist announcement on September 30th!
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 Semifinalists can be found on Coverfly here or below.
