Scriptapalooza kicks off 11th annual screenwriting contest with $10,000 prize

Scriptapalooza is currently accepting submissions for its eleventh annual Scriptapalooza Screenwriting Competition. Script submissions for the competition are read by over 80 top production companies and literary agencies. The first place winner, chosen by Scriptapalooza, receives a $10,000 grand prize. In addition, the Scriptapalooza staff will promote the semi-finalists and finalists for a full year after the winners are announced.

With the participation of production companies such as Disney, Miramax, Big Light, Lawrence Mark and Bender-Spink, among others, Scriptapalooza offers what even the largest grand prize could never buy: a guarantee that an “unsolicited” script will be read by leading Hollywood decision-makers. In many cases, the Scriptapalooza scripts are optioned or even bought outright by enthusiastic production companies.
