The Slamdance Screenwriting Competition is dedicated to discovering and supporting emerging writing talent. We welcome screenplays in every genre, on any topic, from anywhere in the world. Now in our seventeenth year, we have a history of highlighting talented, independent screenwriters and introducing them to the entertainment industry. We've established a strong track record through our competition successes and are committed to continuing our pursuit to champion outstanding new work.
Awards are given to the top three scripts in each category and there is also one Grand Prize. Slamdance awards over $12,000 in cash prizes and produces the winning short screenplay to premiere at Slamdance 2013 in Park City, Utah.
The 2011 Grand Prize winner was Jug Face written by Chad Kinkle. Shortly after, Chad's screenplay was acquired for production. In April, 2012 he completed directing his winning work.
