Man, what a contest. The 1st Annual Stage 32 Comedy Writing Contest not only provided some amazing concepts and ideas, but the writing had our judges in stitches…and with a very tough job to do. In the end, the average scores were higher than we’ve seen in some of our other contests to date, a testament to the creativity of the incredible writers within the Stage 32 community.

Just as a reminder, some of the amazing judges who collaborated on picking our finalists and winners included:
As you know, our contests are all about providing our writers with access and opportunity in the form of meetings and exposure. 8 of our contest finalists over the last year have already been signed. We’re quite proud of that fact.
For this contest, our Grand Prize winner will be flown to Hollywood to meet with industry executives and meet with the legendary Jerry Zucker (Airplane, Naked Gun) and Scott Armstrong (Old School, The Hangover II)!
Additionally, we will be passing their info along to the hundreds of managers, agents, development execs we work with. Our other finalists will have Skype meetings with executives. All finalists will have their loglines exposed to all the industry executives we work with as well. So if you made the finals, congratulations and best of luck with your meetings!
