WeScreenplay 2017 Short Quarterfinalists

By March 20, 2017No Comments

Thank you to all of the writers who entered the WeScreenplay Shorts Contest. Your hard work, talent, and dedication to storytelling shines through in the entries we received. We're so honored to be entrusted with your work which is why every entry is read at least twice and we make all scores transparent to the writer.

This year we're advancing the top 75 entries to the Quarterfinalists round for a 3rd read. If your script is advancing it means that your first two judges agreed that this is an excellent screenplay that deserves to be produced – we can't wait to award our $10,000 production grant. Crafting a script that impacts two readers is a very impressive task, and we're so excited for these writers!

However, there are excellent scripts that didn't advance. 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 certain scripts not advancing will bring their writer success in the very near future. Thank you for entering your script and always keep writing.
