Best Script Awards is a seasonal year-round competition for talented screenwriters looking for employment in the professional industry.

We ourselves are filmmakers, producers and entrepreneurs. We know how difficult it is to show the world that someone appreciates your work. That's why we came up with a unique project in which we involved several jurors from around the world and created a new opportunity to show your film to the world.The competition was created in August 2020 as part of the BEST FILM AWARDS organization based in London, UK. Later, it separated and created a separate Best Script Awards competition.

FilmFreeway ranked our festival among the TOP 25 screenwriting competitions according to the Best Reviewed category in Europe.

The festival is based on a professional approach. The evaluation focuses on the tone of the script, the idea of ​​the script, inventiveness, the characters, the dramatic curve, the credibility of the script, the conflict.

The Best Project of the Year is nominated for the Golden Art Film Academy, which redistributes $ 5,000.00 in prizes.

    As a writer, this is an amazing experience for many reasons. I am excited and extremely honored to be awarded as an Award Winner for Best Drama Screenplay for my screenplay "Soul's On Fire." Best Script Award - London truly promotes world cinema and scripts both nationally and internationally. Being named Award Winner not only has boosted my screenplay but has allowed for greater exposure to potential producers and decision-makers at major motion pictures companies in Hollywood and elsewhere. For this and more, I cannot recommend the Best Script Award - London nor say thank you enough!!

    It’s such an honor to be an “Official Selection” for the Best Script Award - London. This is a huge accomplishment for a first time screenwriter. We are thankful the screenplay for our fiction narrative podcast was accepted, as there are not many competitions that include our format. Thanks again and congratulations to all the winners.
