TITAN Screenwriting Contest
March 1 - August 20
Industrial Scripts has opened submissions for the annual screenwriting competition
Richard (LFH): “From what I can gather (from the FAQ and eligibility criteria) the competition is open for everyone provided submitted screenplays are under 150 pages in length, and you’re over 16 years old. You must also own the rights to the subject matter, or it must belong in the public domain.
There’s quite a lot of detail in the details (…), which personally I think needs editing to make it clearer, but there are multiple categories including for short films. Keep in mind you do need to pay a fee to enter with the amount depending on a couple of factors. There are also different deadlines but the competition is open until August.“

Industrial Scripts launches The TITAN Screenwriting Prize (Press Release 03/03/21)
In addition to the outright winners, nine genre category winners will also be announced, and these will range from Best Action Feature to Best Series Bible to Best TV Drama.
On the production side, the contest will also award a specific prize for Best Lo-Budget Feature – for film scripts likely to be produced for $1m or less – and Best Short Film Script, with the intention of aiding both towards production.
The three outright winners of The TITAN Awards will be announced in December 2021 and will receive: one year’s continuous script and career promotion; project-specific support from Industrial Scripts; marketing to the IS industry roster of executives, agents, managers and producers; a formal introduction to the three judges (who will also read their work); cash awards, software and more.
Open only to writers and filmmakers who have earnt less than $50,000 from writing services in the preceding year, the contest will also award a special prize for the leading diverse script featuring underrepresented voices, and recognise the best “Wildcard” – one writer with obvious, if unvarnished, talent.
The company’s readers will assess the early rounds of the prize, before entrants are filtered down to the category winners. From these winners, Industrial Scripts will determine the Grand Finalists, and these three scripts will be submitted to McDonnell, Crowley and Moore for final evaluation.
After due consideration, the judges will exclusively determine the Gold-Silver-Bronze order of merit, and the prizes will be awarded at a ceremony in late 2021.
