The 2018 Script Pipeline Screenwriting and TV Writing Competitions head into their 16th and 11th seasons, continuing the search for up-and-coming talent and connecting them with top producers, agencies, and managers.

This circulation process has resulted in over $6 million in screenplays and TV pilots sold from competition finalists and Recommend writers since 2003, including most recently Tripper Clancy's "Stuber," Evan Daugherty's "Snow White and the Huntsman," and numerous other former finalists who have sold material to networks and studios as a direct result of Script Pipeline's facilitation.

Awards for 2018 include:

- $50,000 to winners ($25,000 for Screenwriting and TV Writing)

- Development assistance with Script Pipeline execs

- Personal introductions to managers, producers, agents, and others searching for new TV material, tailored to each individual project

- Additional material review for potential circulation

- Long-term circulation for all finalists (and select semifinalists)

- Exclusive invitations to private writer/industry events hosted by Script Pipeline

Our intent: to circulate exceptional material, launch careers, and push scripts closer to production.

    This is my second year to apply to a Script Pipeline competition and I didn't feel like the experience is worth the cost of submission. Best of luck to everyone!
