Announcing the 2018 WeScreenplay Feature Contest Quarterfinalists

By January 24, 2019 January 27th, 2019 No Comments

Thank you to all of the incredible writers who entered the WeScreenplay Feature Competition this year! Your hard work, talent, and dedication to storytelling shines through in the entries we received.

As you probably know — WeScreenplay believes that the best way for writers to grow is through feedback. That is why, starting with this competition, WeScreenplay is providing free, written feedback with every single competition entry. We are glad to hear from so many of you how helpful the notes were.

From over 1,000 entries, we are thrilled to advance 223 entries to the quarterfinal round for another read. A huge congratulations to every writer advancing.

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.
