The World's Fastest Screenplay Contest!
It all starts with the script...and the script starts with the first 10 pages. We help writers discover the compelling "hook" that studios and producers are looking for.
10-page submissions are read in their entirety, receive a complete one-page analysis, with three WINNERS ANNOUNCED AND PRIZES AWARDED EACH AND EVERY MONTH.
Now accepting screenplay TREATMENTS and TV SERIES BIBLES. Have a great story but haven't written the script yet? Submit your treatment or outline and get personalized analysis and fast scores just as though it was a script. Every word of every page read and scored by judges with professional Hollywood development backgrounds and agency connections.
Beyond your TV Pilot script, the series bible is essential to getting a series commitment. Your bible will be read cover-to-cover and analyzed by established TV Producers and Creators with extensive series experience and multiple pilot sales.
Many writers have trouble getting through a complete script simply because their early scenes and characters are flawed. We help you focus on the critical nature of your opening pages and give you professional "course correction."
EVERY WRITER submitting to The Wiki Screenplay Contest gets online recognition each month. All entries and writers are listed/promoted online.
Every word of every submission is read, scored, and analyzed according to the following criteria: Concept • Structure • Storyline • Characters • Dialogue • Pacing • Tone • Conflict • Emotional Response- Investment • Sales/Marketplace Potential. All Wiki judges are seasoned industry professionals looking for the best writing talent to promote and inspire.
For more than three decades we have hired, mentored, and promoted writers to active film and television careers. Let us read the first ten pages of your script--or the entire script, your treatment, or your TV series bible--and if it "pops" we'll see that it gets into the hands of producers, agents, and industry professionals who can take it to the next level.
At The Wiki, it doesn't matter who you are or where you are. We're focused and dedicated to finding the very best writers without regard to gender, race, ethnicity, national origin, or citizenship. It's only about one thing: your writing.
Every 10-page entry receives a complete score sheet and one-page analysis.
Every entry receives monthly online recognition.
