Objective

The PAGE Awards competition was established in the fall of 2003 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 competition has 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, each year the PAGE judges present a total of 31 Awards to new screenwriters in ten different genre categories:

Action/Adventure
Comedy
Drama
Family Film
Historical Film
Science Fiction
Thriller/Horror
Short Film Scripts
TV Drama Pilot
TV Comedy Pilot

This year's winning writers will receive a total of over $50,000 in cash and prizes, plus extensive industry exposure for their winning scripts! 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 scripts into the hands of Hollywood professionals currently in search of new talent.

PAGE Award-winning Screenwriter Wins Hollywood F.A.M.E. Award

2008 PAGE Award winner Lisa Cole recently received a Hollywood F.A.M.E. Award for Rock Doc of the Year for her VH1 documentary DO IT FOR THE BAND. Lisa currently has a new feature in development with her husband, Mark Monroe, who won this year's Academy Award for his documentary THE COVE.

Over the past six years, The PAGE International Screenwriting Awards contest has developed a reputation for discovering and promoting some of the most talented new screenwriters from across the country and around the world. Since receiving their prizes, many PAGE Award winners have gone on to land writing assignments, secure representation, and sign option agreements on their scripts, and several now have movies and television shows in various stages of production and release. In the latest news:

  • 2006 Silver Prize winner Sang Kyu Kim is now a story editor on the TNT series HAWTHORNE, starring Jada Pinkett Smith. Sang wrote the upcoming season's third episode "Road Narrows," which will air this July.

  • 2005 Bronze Prize winner Philip Daay recently completed the script assignment BLACK SALT for Owen Ratliff of Ratti Entertainment. Talent is attached and the project is now in pre-production. In addition, Philip's sci-fi script SCIONIC is being published by Arcana Comics as a graphic novel, due out later this year.

  • 2007 Silver Prize winner John Stancari optioned his action spec DEAD STOP to the producers of the award-winning Sony web series THE BANNEN WAY. The project is now in development.

  • The short film THIS IS NOT A TEST, co-written by 2008 Bronze Prize winner Eoin Rogers and Oscar nominee Ruairi Robinson, has been funded by the Irish Film Board and will be going into production this summer. Eoin is also currently working on a feature script for director Vittoria Colonna, and he is writing a political documentary sponsored by the EU Media script development program.

  • Fawaz Al-Matrouk has completed post-production on his 2009 Silver Prize-winning short film TO REST IN PEACE, which was shot on location in Kuwait. The film's premiere screening is this Thursday evening, May 13th, on the Paramount Studios lot.


The Final Entry Deadline for The 2010 PAGE International Screenwriting Awards competition is Saturday, May 15th.
