We strive to discover & develop talented writers while offering superior transparency regarding our competition.
Recognizing a lack of distinct voices in the screenplays being produced, GSISC has devoted our competition to finding brilliant feature scripts and developing them with our winners to ensure they are production ready. We have a network of associates at production companies who are constantly on the lookout for the next great script. We hope to bring it to them. We work with our feature winners for months to get their scripts polished and edited and their selling materials in order to greatly increase their chances of success. We hold to our promise to submit to our qualified entertainment industry contacts and provide professional, honest development advice.
Screenplays are judged in seven genre categories:
Action & Thriller
Science Fiction & Fantasy
Each category will have semi-finalists and finalists (provided quality scripts are submitted in each genre). The top four winners will be chosen from all of the finalists and will be submitted to production companies, agents and managers for consideration.
Our Short and Super Short (a category we started!) winners receive a lifetime membership in our exclusive ScriptMatch network, where we match screenplays to qualified filmmakers looking for production-ready short scripts. We do our best to ensure the production company seeking the script has the talent and funds to be able to produce a professional, polished film worthy of our winning scripts.
