Searching for a way to jump-start your screenwriting career?

I invite you to enter The 2017 PAGE International Screenwriting Awards contest!

In just a few short months, our Judges will select this year's winners. The winning writers will receive cash and prizes totaling over $50,000— including Gold, Silver, and Bronze Prizes in each of our ten genre categories — plus our huge $25,000 Grand Prize!

Most importantly, the PAGE Awards competition is widely recognized as one of the top sources for new screenwriting talent, both within the Hollywood community and internationally, and many of our past winners have gone on to build highly successful careers in the industry.

This is one of the few screenplay contests in the world that can actually help you land an agent or manager, option and sell your script, and get your movie or television show produced!

Take a look at what Hollywood executives are saying:

“I love judging the PAGE Awards. I’m always very impressed with the quality of scripts that reach the top — consistently better than any other screenwriting contest out there. And the three clients that I found through the contest have gone on to have great success. It’s a wonderful contest that brings attention to talented writers and jump-starts their careers."

- Lee Stobby, Lee Stobby Entertainment


"I consider the PAGE Awards to be one of the top screenwriting competitions in the world. It is exceptionally well run and they work tirelessly to champion and support emerging writers. In 2015, I produced ABOUT SCOUT, which was a PAGE Award winner, and I am now optioning other PAGE Award-winning screenplays. I am proud to be a judge and look forward to continuing my relationship with PAGE well into the future."

- Beverley Gordon, Brownbag Pictures

“The PAGE Awards has been a great professional resource for me. Over the past couple of years I have optioned several PAGE Award-winning screenplays that are now on track to production, including the 2014 Grand Prize winner CARNIVAL. I look forward to seeing what exciting new material I discover in this year’s crop of winners.”

- Mitchell Peck, Peck Entertainment

“After reading PAGE scripts for the past three years, I find myself continually blown away by the quality of the content being submitted. The originality and diversity of the stories being told by these writers from all over the world is incredibly impressive. Through the contest I discovered a talented writer that I'm now collaborating with on a short film, which I'm very excited about. The PAGE Awards is a special program that has created a platform for producers and executives to link up with extremely talented writers.”

- Julie Pacino, Unofficially Unlimited

These are just a few of the many industry execs who'll be judging the Final Rounds of the 2017 PAGE Awards competition.

Enter this year's contest, and they could soon be reading your script!

Best of all, most of the Judges who read our Semi-Final and Final Rounds discover at least one screenplay they're interested in producing or writer they're interested in hiring or signing during the judging process. So, even before the contest results are announced, you could have a producer, agent, or manager chomping at the bit to contact you.

We'd love to help jump-start your career in 2017!

But Please Note: Our Final Entry Deadline is coming up fast — Wednesday, May 17 — so you have just a few more days to get your script in the running!

It could prove to be a life-changing, career-making decision for you — just like it has been for so many of our past winners.

Writers Wanted! / SCREENWRITERS: Don't Miss This Opportunity!
« on: May 09, 2016, 05:17:41 AM »

Screenwriters,

Have you entered The 2016 PAGE International Screenwriting Awards contest yet?

Our Final Entry Deadline is next Monday night, May 16 at 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time, so you have just a few more days to get your script in the running for one of this year's awards!

If you're serious about your screenwriting career, let me tell you three reasons why I think this is such an important opportunity for you...

#1: TOP INDUSTRY JUDGES

Are you looking for ways to get your scripts into the hands of top producers, agents, managers, and development executives - the people who can actually help you get your movie or television show produced?

When you enter the PAGE Awards competition, right from the get-go, those are the exact people who are reading and evaluating your script.

In fact, the reason why so many Hollywood execs come asking to judge the PAGE Awards contest is because they're looking for new projects to produce and new writers to represent, and each year many of our winners and finalists are optioned and signed by producers and representatives who read their scripts during the contest judging process.

It's a serious "win-win"!

#2: HUGE PRIZES & GREAT ODDS

Come this fall, our Judges will present a total of 31 Awards to some of the most talented new screenwriters from across the country and around the world.  Our winning writers will receive cash and prizes totaling over $50,000 - including our huge $25,000 Grand Prize - plus Gold, Silver & Bronze Prizes in each of our ten genre categories.

Plus, throughout the contest judging process, your script is only competing with other scripts in the exact same genre category.  And because we present a total of 31 awards, your script has an excellent chance of winning (approximately 1 in 200).

In other words, we do everything possible to stack the odds in your favor!

#3: PROFESSIONAL RECOGNITION

Over the past decade, the PAGE Awards competition has become one of the most respected sources for new screenwriting talent in the world, and many of our past winners are now seeing their movies and television shows in production, on the air, and in theaters.  Writers like like Bill Dubuque (THE JUDGE, THE ACCOUNTANT), John Scott III (MAGGIE, PARABLE X), Janet Lin (BONES, FOREVER), VJ Boyd (JUSTIFIED, THE JURY), Sang Kyu Kim (THE WALKING DEAD, WAYWARD PINES), and many, many more.

So, whether your goal is to sign with a top literary representative, land a paid writing assignment with a major Hollywood production company, get staffed on a hit TV series, or sell your screenplay and get your movie produced, entering the PAGE Awards competition could mark that turning point in your career, just like it has for so many other writers!

But remember, our Final Entry Deadline is this Monday night, May 16 at 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time, so if you haven't yet entered this year's contest, this is your very last chance!

To submit your script, simply go to the How to Enter page on our website, read the instructions, then click the gold button at the bottom of the page to access our online entry form:

https://pageawards.com/the-contest/how-to-enter

It could prove to be a life-changing, career-making decision for you, just like it has been for so many of our past winners.

I do hope you'll choose to enter the 2016 PAGE Awards contest...

We'd love help launch your career!

Writers Wanted! / Up Date: The 2016 Page International Screenwriting Awards
« on: December 05, 2015, 04:19:38 PM »
    Ready to kick-start your screenwriting career?

    The 2016 PAGE International Screenwriting Awards competition is now open for entries!

    In a few short months our Judges will once again present a total of 31 Awards to some of the most talented new screenwriters from across the country and around the world. Our winning writers will receive cash and prizes totaling over $50,000 - including Gold, Silver & Bronze Prizes in each of our ten genre categories - plus our huge $25,000 Grand Prize!

    Most importantly, over the past decade the PAGE Awards competition has become widely recognized as one of the most important sources for new screenwriting talent within the Hollywood community and worldwide, and many of our past winners now have movies and television shows in production, on the air and in theaters.

    Here's just a small sample of some of the great news coming in from our past winners:

    >> 2008 PAGE Award Winner Bill Dubuque wrote the Warner Bros. movies THE JUDGE, starring Robert Downey Jr. and Robert Duvall, and THE ACCOUNTANT, starring Ben Affleck and Anna Kendrick.  Bill also recently signed a 7-figure deal with Universal to write THE REAL McCOY for Chris Pratt, and his Gold Prize-winning drama THE HEADHUNTER'S CALLING is currently filming in Toronto, starring Gerard Butler and Alfred Molina.  He is represented by PAGE Judge Eric Williams at Zero Gravity and by CAA.

    >> The 2010 PAGE Gold Prize-winning horror movie MAGGIE, by John Scott III, was released earlier this year, featuring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Abigail Breslin in the starring roles. John wrote the new feature PARABLE X, which he will also be directing, and he was just named to Variety's list of "10 Screenwriters to Watch."  He is represented by Sly Predator and ICM.

    >> The 2014 Grand Prize-winning action movie THREE OF SWORDS, by Matias Caruso, was optioned by PAGE Judge Mitchell Peck of Peck Entertainment.  Mitchell brought the script to all the major agencies, and after fielding several offers of representation, Matias chose to sign with CAA.  CAA is now presenting the script to some of their top directors.

    >> After winning her Silver Prize in 2005, Janet Lin was signed by The Gersh Agency and landed a job on the writing staff of the CBS series WATERFRONT.  The following year, she got staffed on the Fox series BONES, and over several seasons worked her way up through the ranks to the position of producer.  Last year she served as one of the head producers on the ABC series FOREVER.

    >> After winning his Gold Prize in 2012, Graham Norris was signed by PAGE Judge Joe Riley of Velocity Entertainment. Shortly thereafter, Graham landed a job on the writing staff of the CW series iZOMBIE, and he was signed by UTA.  Now Deadline has announced that iZOMBIE creator Rob Thomas is backing Graham as Executive Producer on Graham's new TV series TEMPEST.[/li][/list]

    And that's just the tip of the iceberg! You can read more about our past winners and some of their terrific achievements on the Success Stories pages of our website:
