Announcing the 2018 WeScreenplay Feature Contest Semifinalists

By February 12, 2019 May 16th, 2019 No Comments

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

From over 1,000 entries, we are thrilled to advance 53 entries to the semifinal round for another read and further consideration. A huge congratulations to every writer advancing — it is incredibly difficult to stand out at this level.

We also want to acknowledge all of the strong scripts that did not advance. It does not at all mean that our judges didn’t enjoy the read – all of the quarterfinalists scripts were strong writing samples and great stories. Thank you for entering your script and always keep writing.
