Last year's finalist signed with a Hollywood Literary Manager!
The action genre is the one genre that producers and literary managers have recently requested the most, and which we have the least. So this could be one of our most successful competitions! Our jury is looking for emerging voices in the action movie genre. Whether you have a big-budget, tentpole family adventure movie, or a taught, low-budget action film, we want to read your screenplay. Professional feedback from studio-trained readers is available on all entries.
