Q: How do I submit my script to the Screenwriting Competition or Writers Workshop?
Q: I registered, but didn't see a place to upload my script. Where do I do that?
All scripts are emailed in. After you have registered for the Screenwriting Competition, please send your script to email@example.com and for the Writers Workshop please send your script to firstname.lastname@example.org along with the name and email that you used during registration. After receiving your email submission, we will confirm receipt within two business days.
Q: During registration, I received the message "Sorry, Email already exists."
This means that you already have an account with Script Pipeline, and need to login before registering. You can do this at the top right corner of the page. Your username is your email address. Your password is case sensitive. If you don't know or have forgotten you password, email email@example.com.
Q: For all the contests, what should be on my title page for submissions?
Include the title of your script, the name of the author(s), your email, and phone, unless specified otherwise.
Q: I have an idea for a movie! Haven't written it. How do I get my movie made?
Although it is true that some established writers are known for selling an idea by itself, these are typically the heavyweights of the industry who have already proved that their penmanship is worth a million dollars. However, more and more unsold, unproven writers are breaking through with incredible story ideas that catch the attention of major producers.
Script Pipeline also features a contest for movie ideas, the winners of which are reviewed by studio-level companies. Submission guidelines may be found here: Great Movie Idea Contest.
Q: Who are your industry contacts?
Many of our contacts are relationships we've formed over the past 10 years, so it's pretty close-knit group of managers, producers, directors, and so forth that review our competition finalists and Writers Workshop "Recommends." However, we continue to expand our base of industry execs, either through referrals from our trusted outlets or researching and qualifying new companies and individuals.
Our Writers Workshop accepts full-length feature screenplays, short scripts, TV pilots/specs, and most any material for technical editing. However, we do not accept concepts at this time.
We could probably go on for several pages when it comes to our reader selection process. . . . We're very picky, and a reader must have a considerable amount of experience in development to be considered. All Workshop submissions and contest entries are read by a vastly qualified reader. It's something we take very seriously, as the worst thing for us (and the writers) is to gloss over a great project.
In order to receive exposure to our industry contacts, and for us to assist in the circulation process, all material must be submitted first through the Workshop or Competition. Reason being, we use this as screening process to ensure our partners receive only the best material.
