Objective

Deadline/Entry Fees

Contact contest for this year's deadline.

Rules

Open to feature length submissions only, which generally speaking, means between 80-130 pages.

All submissions must be written in industry format, preferably using screenwriting software like Final Draft and Movie Magic.

All submission must be saved and sent in PDF format! We will not be accepting hard copies of scripts (exceptions may be made on a case-by-case basis). PDF format is the industry standard, so you just have to get used to it. All of the screenwriting software programs allow you to save as a PDF/Adobe file.

All submissions are to be kept anonymous, meaning that there should be no identifying information on any part of your script. The title page should have the title of your script only. No name and no contact information of any kind. The person who processes your email submission will keep the necessary records and will not be a part of the judging.

Send your submissions to the following email address with a PDF file of your screenplay attached. In the base of the email, please offer your contact information and a short synopsis of your screenplay. Again, make sure that your PDF copy of your script DOES NOT CONTAIN ANY NAME OR CONTACT INFO.

Email submissions to: secretary@wiscreenwritersforum.org
