ScreenCraft Sci-Fi & Fantasy Screenwriting Competition

ScreenCraft SciFi

Objective

The best visual effects in the universe count for nothing if a story doesn’t have a world or characters that we care about. It takes unrestrained imagination to explore new worlds and character connections through timeless fantasy and awe-inspiring science fiction, and the best scripts in these genres are nothing short of magical. Whether you’re writing a contained science fiction drama, epic fantasy saga, or anything in-between, we want to read your feature screenplay or TV pilot!

ScreenCraft has relationships with sci-fi & fantasy heavyweights that include Scott Free Productions, 21 Laps, HBO Max, Netflix, and countless others. Past ScreenCraft winners have gone on to sell their scripts to major studios and have been hired by companies like Universal, Netflix, Amazon, AMC, Apple TV+ to name a few. Show More
