Are you confident your screenplay would sell if it was given a chance? If it had an awesome cover design and was available as a paperback and e-book on Amazon, would it be a best-seller? Would you like to have your screenplay published on 15 March 2023?

Thousands of FilmFreeway screenwriters have already taken part in this unique screenplay contest since it launched in early 2016, with many of them appearing on Amazon's best-sellers list for screenplays. Take a look at our FilmFreeway reviews to see what they say about their experiences in the contest!

This is not your standard screenplay contest... It’s the most exciting, refreshing and potentially rewarding contest we think you'll find, designed so that you can sell your screenplay as a paperback and as an e-book while you participate.

- By entering the contest, you'll become an internationally published screenwriter with Dizzy Emu Publishing

- Your screenplay will be available for sale as a paperback and e-book on Amazon

- The result of the contest is determined by screenplay sales, not by a small panel of judges

- All writers who enter the contest receive ALL of the royalties for their screenplay’s sales, paid directly to them from Amazon

- Writers retain ALL rights to their screenplay

- The entry fee includes a cover design based on your synopsis, plus you may also submit your own artwork if you wish by emailing it directly to us

- Just because the contest ends doesn’t mean your screenplay’s availability has to – you can keep it available for sale for as long as you like and continue to receive all of the royalties

Each writer who enters the contest receives ALL of the royalties for their sales directly from Amazon. They also retain full control of their screenplay's rights and pricing.

For e-book screenplay sales, writers receive approximately 70% of the sale price of $2.99.

For paperback screenplay sales, a 100 page screenplay sold at $9.99 earns the screenwriter approximately $4.00. This is the list price minus the production costs and Amazon's commission.

The overall contest winner is the writer of the top-selling screenplay over the three month contest sales period and wins a full Publish & Marketing package from Dizzy Emu Publishing - this includes building you a website and making a video trailer to help you promote your screenplay. Additionally, as with all entrants, the winner will also receive all of the royalties from their screenplay sales.

The current window for submissions is open until 10 March 2023, with a go live date of 15 March 2023.

When you submit your screenplay, please ensure you have completed the overview/synopsis section for it on FilmFreeway as this will form the blurb on the back of your paperback screenplay and help to inform the cover design.

Entrants are given full instructions on how to set up their publishing accounts prior to the go live date of 15 March, meaning they can monitor sales, update their royalty payment information, order discounted paperback copies and make changes to their screenplay's listing on Amazon.

Each writer who enters receives ALL of the royalties for their sales directly from Amazon - Dizzy Emu Publishing does not take a penny. To be clear, yes - ALL writers in the contest receive ALL of their royalties, not just the winners of the contest.

Screenplays can be of any genre or length but those under 22 pages are published as an e-book only.

If you do not wish for your contact details to be included in the published version, please ensure you submit a version of the screenplay which does not include them.

Please see for full details.

Overall Rating
  • An Amazing Contest to submit your Screenplay or Book if you are wanting your Work to be seen by the Worldwide view, because you never know who is going to be reading your work. The All Genre Screenplay Contest was very helpful & had good communication throughout any FAQ's or changes needed before the Contest date. I can Recommend that you give it a try & see where it takes you & your work.

  • We want to thank the All Genre Screenplay Contest festival for taking the time to edit our screenplay and create a perfect e-book and print book. Both the abstract and the cover perfectly reflect its meaning according to our expectations

    I'm not sure what's going on here. Would be nice with a little more help for the newbies.

    This is the only competition where my screenplay was accepted (to date). I feel like this competition was a genuine event which honestly considered all submissions. Awesome!

  • Excellent opportunity to share your work with the world! This festival is truly unique and gives writers the chance to monetize their work with minimal upfront cost. My screenplay; The Detritus will finally have its day and I'm super excited to see what happens next.
