There are dozens of screenwriting competitions, but which screenplay from among the winners of all of these quality competitions is the best of the best?
The Contest of Contest Winners hopes to answer that question and shine the spotlight on many accomplished, award-winning screenplays in what amounts to a definitive last shuffle of an elite pack.
All entrants will receive Two Expert Evaluations from writer-judges on their scripts (coverage and score sheet typically valued at $250.00)
