Objective

Diverse Voices strives to provide a contest that is purely focused on promoting and encouraging diverse voices in Hollywood. The contest encourages stories that are told from perspectives that are often underrepresented in Hollywood today -- according to the WGA diversity report that is writers of color, women writers, and writers over the age of 40. However, we'd also love to see stories from the perspective of writers with disabilities, writers in the LGBTQ+ community, and any other voice that is currently underrepresented by Hollywood today.
