GREAT IDEA CONTEST
Los Angeles, California - USA
Finalists Announced: February 2017
In the Spotlight today is the 11th Script Pipeline Great Movie Idea Contest and 9th Great TV Show Idea Contest , connecting writers and non-writers alike with top studio and production executives to pitch bold ideas for "the next big thing." Every great script begins with a great idea, and the Idea Contests are designed to uncover it. Following success at the Idea Contests, participants benefit from direct access to powerful players across Hollywood and are positioned to launch their own remarkable careers in the industry.
The Idea Contests don't require completed screenplays - or any scripts at all, for that matter. They're built entirely around the refinement of a great pitch, regardless of its genre, subject matter, or intended audience. Submissions should be groundbreaking film and television concepts that are both marketable and can stand out on concept alone. Accepted entries include loglines, synopses, video pitches, or full treatments and outlines. Participants will get the chance to connect with industry executives, the opportunity to take home a $1,000 USD cash prize, and additional opportunities to pitch more projects and to receive in-depth guidance.
Script Pipeline winners have sold more than $6 million in spec scripts - including Snow White & The Huntsman (Evan Daugherty) and The Ambassadors (Tripper Clancy) - to studios throughout Hollywood, and more than one hundred writers have seen their scripts optioned by, or have secured representation from, Script Pipeline industry partners. In short, Script Pipeline and its Idea Contests are powerful funnels right into the heart of the filmmaking capital of the world.
MISSION AND OBJECTIVE
The Script Pipeline Great Movie Idea and Great TV Idea Contests are looking for the most original and marketable ideas for film and TV. No need to be a writer, professional or otherwise - just think big.
