Stage 32 Happy Writers Screenplay Contests

We are looking to find the top undiscovered writers and the best scripts of the year. As a result of our history with industry insiders and our global reach, we are able to connect the top writers from around the world to leading executives who can make a difference in their career. We develop and champion our writers and our executives certainly agree, click here to see what they say about us. Also, our success stories speak for themselves.

At Stage 32, we take access and exposure very seriously. To that end, we constantly line up amazing opportunities for the top writers. In our previous contests, our winners met with executives from Relativity, Revolver, Atlas Entertainment and Circle of Confusion to name a few. And, as if that isn't enough, the top three Grand Prize Winners also received unlimited access to a Stage 32 Happy Writers team member who will continue to champion their work for one year. With over 500 executives in our roster, that Stage 32 Happy Writers team member will act as a gateway for the writer to gain access to the industry's leading companies and executives in Los Angeles, New York and London.

We have worked tirelessly to come up with the best possible opportunities for our writers from all over the world.
