Imagine your screenplay being chosen by one of the top agents in Hollywood.

Are you imagining it yet?

This competition has launched screenwriting careers with over a dozen of our last winners and finalists either signed, optioned, or now working in the industry!

Last Year’s Grand Prize winner, Tom Batha, took meetings with executives all around Hollywood, including Robert Downey Jr.'s production company, Team Downey, literary managers at Zero Gravity, Cohen/Torgen Management and Bohemia Group Originals, and film financiers Three Point Capital!

This year we are welcoming another all-star panel of judges from Gersh, Good Fear Content, Verve, Pathfinder Media, Pense Productions, and Elevate Entertainment! Our judges have sold dozens of spec scripts and some currently represent writers they've found on Stage 32. 

This is why, over the last 5 years, Stage 32’s screenwriting contests have gained a reputation as one of the “most worthwhile screenwriting contests to change your career.” No other contest provides their winners and finalists with the same level of direct access to industry leading professionals who can take your career to the next level!

And this is our biggest, most inclusive contest of the year, which has produced some of the most sought after material from our finalists and winners. Requests for our finalists scripts have increased year over year and our winners have met face to face with a who’s who of working industry executives and gatekeepers.

No matter what your genre, no matter the size of your project's budget, whether you write indie or studio, small scale or blockbuster, it doesn’t matter. Our judges simply want to find the most talented writers and the more interesting projects from around the world! And this year, it could be you!

Our grand prize winner will be flown to Hollywood to have in person, one-on-one meetings with all our judges and other executives. ALL of our finalists will have their loglines presented our network of over 500 executives we work with in a private section of Stage 32.

 

Unprecedented access. Better exposure. More reads. Real success!
