The main purpose of Shore Scripts is to get the best scripts made. Monetary prizes are really secondary to this goal. Over 100 Production Companies, Agents, Managers and Judges have all signed up to read the top submitted scripts.
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 that we have a relationship with. We will contact the writer to ensure their consent before doing so.
The writer’s information will be passed onto said 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 the big screen.
