About

The 15th annual Trackingb Feature Script Contest is excited to discover and champion talented writers to the industry and boasts some of the biggest contest success stories ever.

"I entered my spec script EXTANT in the pilot contest because I'd heard so much about trackingb and its reputation for helping writers reach the holy grail of representation. Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine that eight months later I'd be in production, going straight to series on CBS. I know that's a million to one shot, but it happened, and trackingb's tv pilot contest was the very first step."
- Mickey Fisher (contest finalist & now Executive Producer/Creator - "Extant" & "Reverie").

"After becoming a finalist, I landed two of the best reps in town and sold my first feature...  the trackingb contest was the launching pad."
- John Swetnam (contest finalist with "Evidence," screenwriter of "Step Up: All In,"
 "Into The Storm" & "Breaking Through") 

"I've placed in several big screenwriting contests before, but none of them delivered anything close to the results of my Honorable Mention in the Trackingb.com contest. I received over a dozen requests from top representatives and production companies, one of which became my first option.  Now Mike (my co-writer) and I just sold a comedy pilot to Spike TV. It all traces directly back to the trackingb contest."
- Gabriel Snyder - (contest Honorable Mention and now Co-Creator of KIRBY BUCKETS on Disney XD)

"After getting an Honorable Mention I landed my first manager and sold my first feature which ended up getting made! This contest placement was the beginning of my career."
- Matias Caruso  (contest Honorable Mention and now produced screenwriter with Honorable Mention script RAGE that was retitled and became the movie MAYHEM)

Rules

At the program's request, Coverfly will automatically remove your title page for you if you include one when submitting to this program.

Entered scripts will be read by trackingb staff who will select their top choices. Then, we will consult with the industry judges panel to get their thoughts (based on concept/summary alone) on the top selections, and take their opinions into account in the final selections. Five Honorable Mentions and three Finalists will be announced on-site, not emailed... (please note: honorable mentions cannot be finalists), and soon after an Overall Winner will be chosen by our judging panel from the three finalists.


Basic Guidelines:

  • Cover page should include the title, but not any contact information (name, email address, phone number, etc.).
  • Co-writers are allowed. List each writer's name when inputting your information.
  • PDF is highly preferred.
  • Script should be a feature-length screenplay. All genres are allowed, and there are no length requirements.
  • Adaptations are accepted.
  • No limit on the number of entries. Each entry is a separate fee.
  • Simultaneous submissions are allowed (i.e., you can submit to the industry, and enter other contests with the same script).
  • All rights to the material remain with the entrant, whether they are selected as a finalist/honorable mention or not.
  • Electronic submissions only.
