Statewide – Movie/TV Idea Competition – Apr 14/16 – $30 fee

The 16th Great Movie Idea and 14th Great TV Show Idea contests are searching for original feature film and television series concepts. Ideally, unique stories a global, diverse audience can connect with.

NEW FOR 2019: Every entrant receives brief feedback from a judge with remarks on the pitch’s marketability and originality.

Accepted entries include loglines, synopses, and video pitches. Completed screenplays are not reviewed, nor are entrants required to have a screenplay. You only need one spectacular idea. Any genre and budget range, studio-level or indie, including true stories.

For the winner, Script Pipeline provides additional, long-term assistance to refine the pitch, or help the writer draft a polished pilot or series outline. Their execs review the project and offer feedback at all stages of development. When the work is ready for circulation, they send the material to specific producers who would be a good match.
