About

All Entries Include Written Feedback

WeScreenplay believes that feedback is how we improve as writers. We want to make sure every entrant receives value from the competition, so all entries include feedback.

The WeScreenplay Television Screenwriting Competition’s mission is to discover and expose new talent to the entertainment industry. The Television Competition strives to provide industry exposure and support to television screenwriters who are looking to have their stories told.

Benefits

The Grand Prize script in each category will be awarded with $1,000 cash grants and promoted to producers, agents, and managers through email distribution from WeScreenplay, and all Finalists will be publicly recognized through the WeScreenplay website.

WeScreenplay has had a great track record of making the introductions and getting the reads that have led to WeScreenplay winners taking the next step in their writing career. Check out some of our success stories.
