The 2021 Screenwriting Competitions are underway…and as discussed before “participation in these contests is one of the most proactive ways to expand the market for your creative projects.” It is very beneficial for you to enter Screenwriting Competitions often.
Creators Vault’s primary reason for supporting and sponsoring Screenwriting Competitions is to help participants move their projects forward through our support of the host organizations and sponsor awards to a range of winners. There are many choices available to screenwriters and we encourage you to participate in as many as possible. Several good sources for highly recommended competitions are ScriptReaderPro.com (https://www.scriptreaderpro.com/screenwriting-contests/), MovieBytes.com (moviebytes.com/best-screenwri, and NetworkISA.org (https://www.networkisa.org/contest), and many others. Make the choices that best suit your needs.
At this writing, we would like to highlight the current Screenwriting Competitions that Creators Vault supports and sponsors in 2021
NYISA New York International Screenplay Awards has been founded to bring together screenwriters (amateur or professional) from all around the world who aspire to connect with US producers and explore new markets. All through the years, NYISA has received submissions from more than twenty countries, and the winners have had the chance to promote themselves and their scripts to producers in the US. NYISAs jury members are mostly New York Producers, Script Doctors and Filmmakers; so, from the first moment they submit, their scripts are being read by industry professionals. NYISA also provides a workshop “How To Write An Award-Winning Screenplay”, Script Doctoring Services and Screenwriting Courses to everyone who wants to improve their writing skills or scripts.
