About

Of the hundreds of screenwriting contests, some have truly close ties to main industry.

Some even have high-level judges who are truly able to move the dial on a project.

But there aren’t many of them.

We established The TITAN Screenwriting Contest in early 2021 to combat this problem, and to discover and champion screenwriters, delivering their projects to people who are really able to give their projects traction.

Our 2022 Judges:

Basil IWANYK
is the CEO of Thunder Road and one of the most commercially and artistically successful producers in recent movie history. Having steered the JOHN WICK and CLASH OF THE TITANS franchises to vast box-office success over the past decade, Basil has also produced multiple smaller, more intimate films, to tremendous critical reception: these include SICARIO, THE TOWN, HOTEL MUMBAI, WIND RIVER, GREENLAND and A PRIVATE WAR.

Shannon MCINTOSH
Is the Oscar-nominated producer of ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt, and has been one of Quentin Tarantino’s producers of choice for his last three films. In 2021 Shannon produced the big-budget CINDERELLA re-imagining for Amazon starring Camilla Cabello, and has a number of high-profile projects in active development. Over an almost 40-year career, Shannon has also worked as a senior executive, casting producer and writer.

Karen MOORE 
has enjoyed a 30-year career in high-end television production, working on some of the most successful shows of recent times. Producer of fully 20 episodes of BREAKING BAD, Karen also produced multiple episodes of HANNIBAL and HOUSE OF CARDS. EMMY-nominated for her work on Vince Gilligan’s iconic crime show, in 2019 Karen produced Leah Rachel’s CHAMBERS, on Netflix. Twice nominated at the PGA Awards for “Outstanding Producer of an Episodic Drama.” Karen is represented by ICM.

In addition to our 3-strong "Titan" panel, the contest is also judged by a 10-strong Senior Advisory Panel consisting of agents, managers, executives and producers of note.

The contest runs annually, and only runs at all if genuinely heavyweight industry judges stand behind it.
