Our goal is to help emerging screenwriters break into the industry. Monetary prizes are really secondary to that. 100+ Production Companies, Agents, Managers and Judges have all signed up to read each year’s top submitted screenplays.
At any point during the competition, if we feel the script and time is right, we will send it with our full backing to a producer or production company who we have a relationship with. We always obtain prior consent from the writer before doing so.
The writer’s information will be passed onto the relevant party and all further correspondence will be made between them and the writer. This has happened with a number of writers who have entered Shore Scripts. Check out our Success Stories.
The money helps the writer continue writing, but ultimately what every writer wants is to see their words spoken on screen.
