Objective

Movies have been developed pretty much the same way since talkies were considered cutting-edge. But here at Amazon Studios, we believe 21st-century technology creates opportunities to make and share movies and scripts more easily than ever. We invite you to:

  • Win money. Amazon Studios will award a combined $2.7 million in our first year's worth of monthly and annual contests for the best scripts and movies. There is no charge to participate. Learn more.
  • Get noticed. Your work will be shared with a global community of filmmakers and fans, who can offer revisions and advice. Screenwriters can see their words come to life as full-length test movies made by directors vying for our $100,000 monthly awards.
  • Get your movie made. The goal of Amazon Studios is to work with Hollywood to turn the best projects into major feature films.

Deadline/Entry Fees

Entry fee: Free

Rules

  • You must be at least 18 (or the age of majority where you reside).
  • Your script must complete its upload and processing by 11:59 PM Pacific Time on the last day of the contest entry period. This could take hours, so make sure you give yourself plenty of time.
  • Only scripts between 85 and 160 pages long (in standard script format) are eligible for contest awards.
  • An eligible original script for a project will receive at least 50% of the Best Script award if the winning script is selected from that project.
  • A script in this month's contest will also be considered for the annual contest and subsequent monthly contests for which it is eligible.

Awards

Two Best Script Awards: $20,000 each.
