LAST OPPORTUNITY TO ENTER CWA – THIS SUN, JUNE 10TH
The 5th Annual CREATIVE WORLD AWARDS SCREENPLAY CONTEST (CWA), an international screenwriting event, is known for championing writers and opening doors. Through established relationships with some of the industry's most sought-after companies, CWA plays a critical role in connecting talented writers with agents and producers in search of fresh, new material. Their most recent option deal was announced last month for a 2012 entrant.
"Thanks to CWA I am now in the process of finalizing an option deal on the script I entered last year. I am truly blown away by your efforts to develop, encourage, and provide the opportunities you do - again, thank you!" - 2011 Quarterfinalist
"The Judge's Highlights I received were far above anything I dreamed of. I am amazed by the depth and detail of the comments, and can't thank the Judge and CWA enough. I think this was the best investment I've ever made in myself and my writing career." - 2011 Entrant
CWA has built relationships with such A-list companies as Lionsgate/Mandate International, GreeneStreet Films, Relativity Media, Crystal Sky, Icon Films & Entertainment, and Voltage Pictures, who have first looks at the Contest's top projects. Through its first four contests, CWA has secured representation and several option deals for entrants, firmly establishing itself worldwide as a leading source for making deals and granting writers much needed exposure in the industry.
CWA also promotes beyond just the winning scripts, so you have a real chance to get your foot in the door. 41 companies outside of their industry list requested scripts in their winter 2011 logline promotion alone.
TYPE OF ENTRIES: CWA accepts all feature length screenplays, shorts, and teleplays with over $25,000 in cash & prizes awarded each year.
