The International High School Screenwriting Contest is a student-run free screenwriting contest for high schoolers around the world.
We saw that many creative teenagers were struggling to find an output for their writing; because everywhere they turned to was either blocked by a paywall that they couldn't pay, or they couldn't find a free contest of quality.
Here at the International High School Screenwriting Contest we provide quality judges and a contest dedicated to encouraging young screenwriters of the world for free.
First in the feature, short, and Climate Change Screenwriting Award categories will each receive a free script consultation from ScreenReaders!
First, second, and third in the feature and shorts category will each receive a certificate recognizing their place in the competition.
First, second, and third in the Climate Change Screenwriting Award will each receive a certificate from the IHSSC and from the Basel Agency for Sustainable Energy recognizing their place in the Competition.
In addition, ScreenReaders will provide 50% off for any of their services for second place in any category, 25% off for third place in any category, and 15% off for any other participant! Check out their link here: http://www.myscreenreaders.com/
