Mission / description The New York Screenplay Contest is a global screenwriting contest designed to launch careers and provide recognition and network opportunities to the world's best new voices in screenwriting for film and television. The New York Screenplay Contest awards its winners with cash, prizes, sponsorship packages, and meetings with leading industry professionals.

As New York's top screenwriting contest, we believe that quality screenwriting is the backbone of filmmaking and invite you to join an international community of screenwriters by submitting your work to compete against the best and brightest in contemporary scriptwriting. Our goal is to identify and award the very best screenwriters from around the world with the prestigious recognition of being a New York Screenplay Contest award recipient and to help new writers find success in today's highly competitive film and entertainment industries. Only the most finely written screenplays are honored with the exclusive distinction of being a Winner or Official Finalist of the New York Screenplay Competition.

The competition gives writers the opportunity to have their scripts read by a professional jury, receive top industry recognition, and participate in a festival focused specifically on screenwriting. Screenwriters may submit their work for a chance in distinction in a wide variety of categories and all genres including: Feature Screenplays, Short Screenplays, Television Scripts and Pilots, Stage Plays, Treatments, and Reality Television Concepts.

We are proud to offer fresh writing talent the opportunity to catch the attention of the motion picture and entertainment community and look very much forward to reading your work.
