WriteMovies has been helping writers succeed since 1999! Now in our 20th anniversary year, we are currently accepting submissions for our Horror Award 2019!

Following on from our highly successful Sci-Fi and Fantasy Award, we are continuing our series of genre prizes with an award for the Horror genre! The WriteMovies Horror Award is all about celebrating scripts that chill and scare us, tapping into our darkest and most primal fears…

Whether your script features monsters and serial killers or just toys with our minds, we’d love to read it – and be terrified while doing so!

All submissions for the WriteMovies Horror Award also automatically get free entry to our Fall 2019 Screenwriting Contest, with the opportunity to win the Grand Prize of $2000 and many other bonuses! Find out more here: https://writemovies.com/writemovies-fall-2019-screenwriting-contest/

The winner of this award will receive:

- Guaranteed pitching to industry
- Two sets of Development Notes to help take their script to the next level
- Further advice to fine tune your script from our experts

Plus, all submissions receive automatic entry to our Fall 2019 Screenwriting Contest

- Up to $1 million in option monies from the A-List producers we work with. If an established studio/production company makes an offer on your script, we will fly you to Los Angeles and cover your flight & hotel costs for three days.
