Thank you to the nearly one thousand writers who entered The 2017 WeScreenplay Feature Contest. Your hard work, talent, and dedication to storytelling shine through in the entries we received.
This year we’re advancing the top 26 entries to the Finalist round for a 5th read. This highest scoring will then to be sent on to the industry jury that includes Director Dave Green, Executive Juliet Berman, Literary Manager Le’Ander Nicholson, and Executive Melissa Azizi.
Crafting a script that impacts four readers is extremely impressive, and we’re so excited for all the advancing writers! They’re on the path toward amazing mentorships with our incredible panel of judges. We are also giving away over $20,000 in cash, prizes, coverage, and more. Make sure to say congrats to the semifinalists on Facebook and Twitter!
However, there are excellent scripts that didn’t advance. The Semifinalist round was incredibly competitive. Just because your script isn’t on this list doesn’t at all mean that our judges didn’t enjoy the read – in fact, we’re certain that many scripts not advancing will bring their writer success in the very near future. Thank you for entering your script and always keep writing.
