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.

- No limit to the number of original scripts you submit. Duplicate entries will be automatically disqualified.

- No substitutions will be accepted once submitted.

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

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

- Winners awarded a service or subscription may not substitute it for cash value.

-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.
