    Script Pipeline TV Writing Competition 2018

    The 11th Script Pipeline TV Writing Competition is searching for extraordinary television writers and fresh, compelling pilots for exposure to production companies, agencies, and managers.

    Launched in 2008 as a response to the growing demand for new episodic content, the competition has established its role as a go-to outlet for emerging writers looking to get staffed on shows or develop their TV material.

    Together with the Screenwriting Competition, Script Pipeline cultivates relationships with the industry’s top executives, focused specifically on finding writers representation, supporting diverse voices, championing marketable, unique storytelling, and pushing more original projects into production.

    There are no restrictions on submitting to other writing competitions or sending your script elsewhere while entered in the contest. Writers may have sold or optioned material in the past, however the script you’re entering must not be currently under option, and must not have been previously produced as a feature film.

    All rights to the material remain with the writer.

    Entry fee is 50 USD.

    Eligibility


    Open to writers worldwide who are eighteen years or older at the time of entry.
