WeScreenplay Feature Contest Finalists

By February 17, 2017No Comments

Thank you to the nearly one thousand writers who entered The WeScreenplay Feature Contest in 2016. 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 26 entries to the Finalists round for a 5th read. If your script is advancing it means that your first four judges agreed that this is an excellent screenplay that deserves to be seen. Crafting a script that impacts so many readers is extremely impressive, and we're so excited for these writers! They're on the path toward amazing mentorships with the Director of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the VP of Development for Morgan Freeman, and a Director of Development for Brookstreet Pictures. Not only that, but we're giving away over $20,000 in cash, prizes, coverage, and more.

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.

Finally – we'd like to encourage everyone to check out the Diverse Voices Competition presented by WeScreenplay. This contest's winners have signed with management companies and optioned scripts, plus $3 from every entry goes to the Books for Kids Foundation. This contest's missions is to provide a platform for promoting and encouraging diverse voices and stories.
