Founded by award-winning writer/director Dawn Fields (Fragile Storm, FOUND), the mission of the Palm Street Films Annual Script Contest is to reward outstanding screenwriting with both social media and industry recognition as well as cash prizes (as we believe all writers who master their craft should be rewarded monetarily).

In addition to the recognition and cash prizes, three of the four previous year's winners got their films produced including the multi-award-winning Fragile Storm, starring Lance Henriksen. And we have a smaller field of competition than the big guys.

A total of 20 winners:

One First Place Winner FEATURE script: $1,000.00 cash

One First Place Winner SHORT script: $500.00 in cash

Five Finalists in both FEATURE and SHORTS categories receive laurels and social media shout-outs

Ten Semi-Finalists in both FEATURE and SHORTS categories receive laurels and social media shout-outs
