It’s open to all screenwriters/TV writers – beginners to pros – with the exception of anyone who has earned $50,000 or more as a writer in the previous year. And it must be written by the person (or team) who enters the competition. No plagiarism allowed, of course! Not all working writers are good writers and most every writer needs help.

By clicking on the entry buttons at the bottom of each page or by visiting either www.filmfreeway.com or withoutabox.com links to access the application materials online. Once you’ve establish an account, you can complete an application form, pay the entry fee and upload your script in pdf format.

You can enter as many screenplays or pilots as you wish. Each entry requires a separate online application form and entry fee. Note: If you write as a team, only one application is needed, listing the two (or more) of you as the script’s writers.

There is no minimum, but be aware that the WGA states that 70 pages constitutes the minimum number of pages for a feature film. If you are submitting your script as 'entry only' there is no maximum number of pages. However, if you request notes we will charge $1.00 per per page over 135 pages. This payment can be made directly to us through PayPal. Please get in touch through the Contact page for information.

The entry fees go towards paying our script consultants, administrative costs and, because the entertainment industry has a tradition of giving back, we make a charitable donation to the grand prize winner’s favorite cause.
