Script Summit was created to help more writers get signed, staffed, and produced. Our previous winners have been signed by talent managers, seen their scripts get produced, and have had their work pitched to production companies.

This is why Script Summit is listed as one of the Top 20 Biggest Screenwriting Contests in the world by the ScriptLab!

With our contest, you can even receive feedback from our professional readers.


This is a Blind Contest. Cover pages and contact info will be removed before judges read the submissions.

We want to help more writers get signed, staffed, and produced. Coverfly has built strong relationships with industry professionals and has found unique opportunities to partner with talent discovery programs and use those connections to help bolster success efforts and achieve greater results for writers. Through this writers have been signed, staffed, or had projects optioned/financed.

As an InkTip Pro Member, thousands of filmmakers can find and read your scripts, and you'll be able to pitch directly to production companies every week. With over 3,000 options and 400 movies made, InkTip is the place for independent film.

All winners will receive a Pro membership to The Successful Screenwriter where they can have access to our unique character database, courses, interact with industry pros, as well as pitch their script on our #1 international podcast!
