If you’ve written a great script we want to read it. We are run by a passionate team of artists who get our winners the exposure they deserve. Our goal is to connect writers with agents, managers, and producers. Most of the world’s best cinema has come out of California and most of our Award winning films have been made here and the vast majority of Award winning artists live here as well so it makes sense to get your script read by the people who have access to the people who can get it made.
We don’t care where you’re from or what sort of past you have, we just want to read great scripts, so if you’ve written something really special, we want to read it. Please submit today!
Some of film’s biggest names are on our distribution list. Our winners are read by the agents and talent managers on both coasts and producers all over the world. And what’s more our distribution list is growing every day because people respect us for our taste and integrity. We only recognize great scripts and our recognition means a lot.
Please note, we are an independent screenwriting competition. Our city is home to thousands of artists of all shapes and sizes, in addition to hundreds of organizations designed to support those artists, including, but not limited to various theaters, museums, universities, acting schools, conferences, galas, award shows, development workshops, and film festivals of all shapes and sizes. We are not affiliated with any of them. We are an independent screenwriting competition. If you are looking to connect with one of those organizations, please reach out to them directly.
Winners will receive an InkTip Script Listing and have their logline featured in InkTip Magazine so they can promote themselves and their scripts to InkTip’s entire network of producers, managers, and agents. InkTip Magazine is sent to over 15,000 producers and representatives.
Companies who are InkTip members include: ABC, Anonymous Content, APA, CBS Films, HBO Films, ICM, Paradigm, Paramount Pictures, Hallmark Channel, FX, Universal, WME, Echo Lake, Zero Gravity, Bad Robot, 20th Century Fox, and many more.
