Objective

The PAGE Awards competition was established in 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
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 work! Most importantly, the contest is judged entirely by working professionals in the film and television industry, so all PAGE Awards contestants have the opportunity to get their scripts into the hands of Hollywood professionals currently in search of new talent.

Deadline/Entry Fees

Expired. Previous Deadline: 05/17/2017

Notification: : Quarter-Finalists announced July 15; Semi-Finalists announced August 15; Finalists announced September 15; Winners announced October 15.

Awards

$25,000 Grand Prize, PLUS Gold, Silver & Bronze prizes in all ten genre categories.

As a result of the PAGE judging process and publicity, dozens of PAGE Award winners have landed screenwriting assignments, secured representation, signed option agreements on their work, and many now have movies and television shows in production, on the air and in theaters.

Interviews

MovieBytes Interview:
Screenwriter Colin Preston

An interview with screenwriter Colin Preston regarding the International Writing Competition.

Q: What's the title of the script you entered in this contest, and what's it about?

A: "Precipice Bird" A man with no past comes to Loch Ness and falls in love with a local woman and her son. After building a life together, he and the boy accidentally kill Nessie and become infamous overnight. The man is driven away from town and his family, he disappears. Sixteen years later, the boy is a young man, a sought after photographer for dangerous situations in the wilds of the world. A call comes from an old friend of the man. The man is very much alive, though his whereabouts are unknown, and he’s sent a diary that dates back before Loch Ness. He’s found a legend or two that the world forgot and he wants the young man to find them, too. From the mountainous forests of the northwest to the deserts of north Africa, the young man trails his past and finds myths in ghosts. He discovers that the best memories and the biggest heroes come to life more than once.

Q: What made you enter this particular contest? Have you entered any other contests with this script? If so, how did you do?

A: It seemed solid and the principles behind it were in line with mine. The coordinators were easily accessible and professional. Yes, I've entered many contests with this script and it has made final rounds in most.

Q: Were you satisfied with the adminstration of the contest? Did they meet their deadlines? Did you receive all the awards that were promised?

A: Yes, I was very satisfied with the contest coordinators and they met their deadlines to the day (unreal!). Too soon to say about the rewards, but I don't expect there to be any issues.

Q: Were you given any feedback on your script? If so, did you find the feedback helpful?

A: No, no feedback is offered in this competition.

Q: Has your success in this contest helped you market your script? Were you contacted by any agents, managers or producers?

A: I was able to use this win to stoke the fires of some current conversations with agents and managers, but I expect there to be many more contacts due to the publicity generated through the contest.

Q: What's your background? Have you written any other screenplays or television scripts?

A: I have a background in writing and psychology. I've written five award winning screenplays, including some that have hit significant heights. I'm also a licensed psychotherapist with a full private practice, the experience from which helps develop the relationships and dialogue in most of my scripts.

Q: Do you live in Los Angeles? If not, do you have any plans to move there?

A: No, Seattle. I lived in LA for graduate work at UCLA, but while I travel there often, I find that commuter flights and FedEx are easier on a writing career than living in LA was.

Q: What's next? Are you working on a new script?

A: I have five new scripts about to release, including a few comedies I've loved writing, another action-adventure piece, and a horror project that scared me so much to write that I don't think I'll see it if it's ever made.
