Prizes

The most important prize WeScreenplay can offer is having these scripts read by our industry jury and sent to industry relationships. Many WeScreenplay winners have been introduced to their manager or a producer they’re working with through our competitions.

On top of the exposure, The WeScreenplay Television Contest is giving away cash and prizes. The Grand Prize scripts in each category will receive $1,000 cash prize and the top 3 scripts in each category will receive WeScreenplay’s top-notch coverage.
