IMDb Qualifying event
From the creators of the “Depth of Field International Film Festival,” “Docs Without Borders Film Festival,” “WRPN. tv Women’s International Film Festival,” and the “WRPN.tv Entertainment Network," we bring you the “WRPN.tv Screenplay Competition (WRPNSC)”.

A competition that was created for up-and-coming screenwriters.

We accept both produced and unproduced scripts.

Get your Rhodium-winning script submitted for consideration to Polaris Pictures, a film finance company.
Polaris Pictures does not accept unsolicited submissions.
We don't have any control or influence over Polaris Pictures deciding to offer you a production deal or even answering your email. We merely open the door for the top winners.

If your screenplay or novel is rejected, we will tell you the reason(s), and you’ll have a chance to re-submit up to 30 days before the last deadline or the following season for free.

WRPNSC accepts unproduced and produced feature-length screenplays between 70 and 130 pages, unproduced and produced short scripts under 40 pages, unproduced and produced teleplays of 45 to 70 pages, and unproduced and produced Webisode pilots of 10 to 20 pages.

To ensure that each screenplay is read, studied, and rated individually, WRPNSC has instituted a system where entries do not compete against each other but are recognized for their merits.
They compete against themselves; each entry is judged on individual merits and scored on an inherent value system.

The judge's focus is on your screenplay when it is your turn to be evaluated, not on all the other scripts that are on cue; this ensures that they will not have comparisons going on in their minds when they should focus entirely on you.

Screenplays are accepted from anywhere in the world but in English only.

Screenplays must be in PDF format and submitted electronically through FilmFreeway only

Every submitted script must include a title page with contact information.
A treatment is optional (but helpful)

WRPNSC accepts:

-Unproduced and produced feature-length screenplays between 70 and 130 pages.
-Unproduced and produced short screenplays 40 pages and under.
-Unproduced and produced Teleplays and Webisodes of 45 to 70 pages.
-Unproduced and produced Webisodes of 10 to 20 pages.

There is no limit to the number of original scripts you submit. Duplicate entries will be automatically disqualified.

Substitutions will be accepted no later than 30 days prior to festival's end date

The decisions of the judges are final and shall not be disputed.

The Top winners understand that there is no guarantee of representation or production deals by our associates.

If your screenplay or novel is rejected, we will tell you the reason(s), and you’ll have a chance to re-submit up to 30 days before the last deadline or the following season for free.
