Since 1999, WriteMovies’ screenwriting contests guarantee to develop our winners’ projects at our own expense and pitch them to producers with the power to make them happen. Our contests are designed to show you exactly how well your script currently competes in the market, and a clear ladder to success.

Our results – with up to 50+ Quarter-Finalists, 25+ Semi-Finalists, 7+ Honorable Mentions and 3 winners – show you where your project currently sits in comparison to others, and our studio-quality tiers of script mentoring and script consultancy show you its potential and how to remove the obstacles to that success without compromising on the things that matter most to you about your script.

Contest News

WriteMovies.com Holds L.A. Reception Celebrating Winners Of International Writing Contest

WriteMovies.com is holding a reception to celebrate the winners of its international writing contest, on October 8, 2002 at The Lot, Warner Hollywood Studios. Many international writers and industry figures will attend with Niki Marvin—producer of The Shawshank Redemption—as guest of honor.

Jeff Dixon will receive a first prize of $2000 for his winning script Dermis, a horror thriller staged in the eerie world of tattoo collectors. Second place is Jimmy Shea for The Chat Room, another thriller with cybersex as the backdrop. Third place goes to German novelist Cornelia Kempf for her superb Die Gaerten Von Damaskus (The Gardens of Damascus), a dramatic love story about an enslaved German nobleman and an Arabian Princess set during the Crusades.

“One of the main objectives of the company is to help open doors for up and coming screenwriters often missed or ignored in Hollywood,” says WriteMovies.com president Alex Ross. “The goal is to provide a richer entertainment experience by offering new perspectives,” he adds.

Via management, writing contests, script analysis, and other writing services, WriteMovies.com specializes in finding storytellers worldwide and has an esteemed board of directors.

One board member, Tom Craig, Senior Executive VP at Universal Studios, responsible for such pictures as Shakespeare in Love says, "WriteMovies.com has an experienced staff that helps you tailor your project to give it the best possible chance of landing on the desk of potential buyers. I recommend WriteMovies very highly".
