The PAGE Awards competition was established by an alliance of Hollywood producers, agents, and development execs. Our goal: to discover the most exciting new scripts by up-and-coming writers from across the country and around the world. And due to the success of our winning writers, the PAGE Awards have rapidly become one of the most important sources for new screenwriting talent within the Hollywood community and worldwide.
One of the most frustrating things about so many screenwriting contests - both for the writers and for the judges - is that scripts of different genres are in competition with each other. But how can you compare a comedy to an action script? How do you rank a family film against a thriller? Moreover, why is it that most contests only reward the screenwriter who writes a powerful drama, while many of the most successful movies made in Hollywood are comedies, thrillers, action flicks and family films?
In order to address this problem, and to encourage a wide variety of screenwriting talent, the PAGE Awards judges present prizes in ten different genre categories:
TV Drama Pilot
TV Comedy Pilot
Not only will this year's winning writers receive a total of over $50,000 in cash and prizes, but most importantly, the contest is judged entirely by working professionals in the film and television industry, so all contestants have the opportunity to get their work into the hands of Hollywood professionals currently in search of new talent.

The 2007 PAGE Award-winning drama DONOVAN'S ECHO, by Canadian writers Jim Cliffe and Melodie Krieger, screened last weekend at the Pan-African Film Festival in Los Angeles and will open on February 24th in theaters across Canada.
Directed by Jim Cliffe and featuring Danny Glover in the title role, DONOVAN'S ECHO is the story of a brilliant mathematician who as a young man helped to develop the atomic bomb, but in the process neglected his family, resulting in the accidental death of his wife and daughter. 30 years later, Donovan Matheson returns home, and as the anniversary of the tragic event approaches, he discovers an unsettling similarity between random events of the present and events that occurred in the past. Convinced that history is repeating itself, Donovan risks everything to break the cycle and save another unsuspecting family from the same tragic fate.
The movie was filmed in British Columbia and is being distributed by Union Pictures. For more information, please visit: donovansecho.com
