Discovering & Promoting Writers Since 1999

Our intention is to help open doors for the aspiring television writer. There are four categories you can submit to, which include one hour existing shows, ½ hour existing sitcom, original pilots, and reality shows.

The participants we have chosen to read the winning scripts are individuals from established production companies. Whether you are already an aspiring television writer or a writer interested in exploring other avenues, Scriptapalooza TV is here to promote careers in television and provide exposure for the undiscovered writer.

The television competition is awarding over $3000 in cash prizes.

We are giving awards in the following categories:

• Pilot Category
• 1/2 Hour Category
• 1 Hour Category
• Reality Shows

All the winners will be sent to over 50 producers, managers and agents.

After Scriptapalooza announces the TV winners we do call and promote the 12 winners to all of our contacts. Also we do get calls from interested agents, managers and producers looking to read the top winners. The goal of Scriptapalooza TV is to connect writers with producers, managers and agents...people that can make a difference in a writer’s career.

  • Scriptapalooza is a well-established contest that rates consistently as one of the top 15 screenplay competitions. Therefore, it was gratifying to have my pilot, Murder-Go-Round, chosen as a semi finalist for their television competition. Thank you!

  • Thank you Scriptapalooza for selecting our Pilot "I'm So Done" as a Winner, in the Scriptapalooza Television Writing Competition! We have entered a lot of festivals and Scriptapalooza was by far head and shoulders above the rest, best in class for encouraging writers, communication, on time results, followthrough and great feedback. Thank you to Mark and the entire staff! You guys are the BEST!
