20/20 Screenwriting Contest

Deadline Entry Fee
October 20, 2008 $20
Award: WGA Signatory Agent Representation for all winning scripts.
Other Awards/Prizes: All writers receive feedback in the form of a 20-point marketability checklist and, in some cases, margin notes.
To discover great screenplays in order to get them placed with WGA Signatory agents and into the hands of producers. If a screenplay hasn't established itself by page 20, it is unlikely that it will ever. Script Surgeon and Let's Do Lunch/Screenbrokers' screenplay analysts, all rated highly by Creative Screenwriting Magazine, will read the first 20 pages of each entry. A 20-point criteria checklist of "musts" for a production-ready script will determine who will be entered in Round Two for reading of the entire script. All 20 criteria must be met in both rounds. 
Notification Date:  August
Eligibility: Open to anyone

Round 1

  • We read the first 20 pages of your script(s)
  • Your pages are not returned, but you do receive a 20-checkpoint evaluation based on 20 screenplay imperatives for a production-ready script.
  • All screenplays that meet all 20 criteria will be automatically entered into the second round in the running to obtain WGA agency representation.

Round 2

  • Send no money, just your completed screenplay.
  • Every complete screenplay will be read in its entirety by the judge who read the original 20 pages.
  • All complete screenplays that continue to make the 20 criteria requirement will go into the final round.

Final Round

  • Two additional judges will read these screenplays.
  • All screenplays that meet the 20 question criteria by all judges are winners.
