Hello Gang,

The next Screenwriting Battle starts on May 6th! Cash Prize Pool is now over $1000 USD (and counting). Only $10 to enter.

Check it out: Screenwriting Battle

A short screenplay competition for screenwriters, by screenwriters -- where all participants must read/give feedback/and judge six other scripts in different genres than their own script. Yes, that means all participants are also judges.

This will be the third competition we've done so far. It was heavily inspired by these forums.

You are dealt prompts that you can re-draw (yayyyy even your genre). You then have 4 days to write up to 8 pages. After submitting, you have a little-less than a week to read 6 scripts, give feedback, and compare them, choosing a winner in 3 "arbitrations." A winner is crowned in each of the four genres, (they split the prize pool evenly), so you are never judging a script that you are in direct competition with. The entire competition is over in 3 weeks. It's fun. It's quick. And you can win some cash!

Please reply to this topic with any questions or email me at admin@screenwritingbattle.com

So far there have been 4 winners from these forums in past Battles.

Join the Battle!

-Max

Any idea when the next one will start? It's hard to tell on the website, but I want to do it, this looks awesome!

Hi Joni, the next one will be in November. It's now twice per year (May and November). Hope to see you compete then :)

Cheers,
