12th edition accepting entries.

We are a Five-Star reviews competition. Check for yourself below, and even more on our website, under the "Reviews" category.

The Script Showcase is an International script and authors competition. Since 2016, we awarded 84 winners and selected an additional 326 authors.

The script is the core of any project.
We want to enlighten the raw talent of writing, regardless genre, style, origin, background of the author.

Not everyone knows how to write. We reward ideas, talent, and structure.
If in the wrong hands, a good script may end up as a flat movie, but a bad script never, ever is going to make a groundbreaking film.
If you got theses three winning factors, you have a good chance.

EXPERIENCE
The SSS offer a unique opportunity to talk about your script. Explain your point of view, share your writing process: other writers are interested, and so are we.

Our showcases and award giveaway take place in Los Angeles and California.
NETWORKING is highly recommended and encouraged during the event.

EVENTS
We are entering our 5th year of activity. With about 2 showcases a year, our 10th event just took place in Los Angeles, on Sunset Boulevard, January 22nd, 2020.

CURRENT COVID-19 INFORMATION:
Safety is our priority. This is why the May 2020 winners and selection will benefit from an interactive edition of the Showcase.

    So thrilled to have "Lolly Wants a Twinkie" reviewed by a professional panel and selected as a Finalist in the Best Short category. Having this opportunity to be weighed and measured alongside a diverse and talented pool of fellow writers is an honor and a validation of taking advanced steps on a worthy and challenging journey.
