Objective

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

The 2007 PAGE Award Winners Announced

The winners of the fourth annual PAGE International Screenwriting Awards competition have now been announced, and the judges have awarded this year’s $10,000 Grand Prize to John Arends for his captivating action/adventure script SOLOMON’S WHALE -- a modern day re-imagining of the “Moby Dick” myth. The obsession of the father is visited upon the son when a marine mammal activist must reunite with his estranged father, a retired whaler, in order to save the largest living creature on earth: a giant blue whale, twice normal size with an attitude to match, who is being pursued by a ruthless hunter/killer -- the father’s former shipmate and captain.
