Description

The 12th Annual 2014 Script Pipeline International Screenwriting Contest continues a long tradition of discovering up-and-coming creative talent and connecting them with top producers, agencies, and managers across both studio and independent markets.

This process has proven remarkably successful, with numerous contest alumni finding elite representation and gaining crucial introductions to otherwise impossible-to-reach industry execs. But it’s the success stories that have caught the attention of major agencies, including WME, Paradigm, and CAA. The result: $5 million in specs sold from Pipeline competition finalists and “Recommend” writers since 2003.

Last season, over 4,500 scripts were entered in the Screenwriting and TV Writing contests combined, making Script Pipeline one of the leading companies reviewing spec material. Beyond prizes, finalists are given exposure to approximately 200 qualified industry contacts, as well as:

• Over $20,000 in cash

• Phone or in-person consultations with Script Pipeline’s Director of Development and Senior Consultant

• Personal introductions to managers, producers, agents, directors, and others searching for new projects and writers

• An opportunity to send other material to Script Pipeline for internal review

• A reserved spot to the 2014 Secret Door Pitchfest as a recognized finalist

Our intent: not only circulate upper-echelon material to the proper channels, but help launch the careers of our writers.
