Objective

The 2023 Script Pipeline Screenwriting and TV Writing Competitions head into their 21st and 16th seasons, continuing the search for up-and-coming talent and connecting them with top producers, agencies, and managers. As one of the longest-running and most successful screenplay contests, we focus specifically on finding writers representation, supporting diverse voices, championing ambitious storytelling, and pushing original projects into production.

Over $8 million in screenplays and pilots have been sold by Script Pipeline writers, with numerous scripts produced since 1999, including studio releases Stuber and Snow White and the Huntsman. Most recently, Legendary bought Pipeline finalist Bring Me Back by Crosby Selander for seven figures, and winners Erin Muroski (TV Writing) and Daniel Jackson (Screenwriting) signed with reps at Bellevue, with Daniel's Cauliflower landing the #1 spot on the Black List.
