The TOP SCRIPT AWARDS festival is held 2x a year and aims to bring even more attention to your Wonderful Work! With hundreds of festivals offering limited recognition to the great writers that are the foundation of the filmmaking industry, we offer over 15 categories to highlight the specific and overall elements of each script.

Starting in 2024 we will provide a "REVIEW and AWARD" for the top 10 scoring scripts for you to publish and share.

Each script will be read by the panel and awarded based on its superior elements. This is a selective festival. So if you are "SELECTED" you can be proud in knowing that your SELECTED script is truly amazing. Award winning scripts will be showcased on all of our social sites and, at the direction of the writer, can even be listed for sale thru our marketing. Biannual Best of Fest Nominations will be made available to a long time Literary Manager for feedback.

Overall Rating
  • A very welcoming and professional film festival. Some great ideas for cateogries from the more traditional formats which means people can celebrate their best points and build on them. It also makes it more entertaining! A great selection of contestants and I hope this festival by this team continues to grow. Highly recommended.

  • Winning this contest holds a special place in my heart, as it was my first competition victory. It validated me as a writer and inspired me to continue pursuing my passion. Prior to this win, I was uncertain about whether to continue writing. The encouragement from this success prompted me to enter four different projects in various competitions, and I achieved placements and wins in more than several other competitions. I am truly grateful to Top Script for this opportunity!
