The script must be the writer’s original work. Adaptations are accepted but the writer must own all copyright. At no point will Shore Scripts ever have any rights over your work.

All ages are welcome.

We accept animations.

Each writer, or writing team, may not have earned more than $30,000 (£24,000 approx) in screenwriting fees since 2010. Previous screenwriting cash awards do not count towards this total.

You may enter a newer draft of an already submitted script. There is a small additional fee. You may re-enter you script through the Resubmission page.

A writer can enter as many scripts in as many categories as they wish.

If a script is optioned or purchased during the competition, then it will no longer be eligible for the contest.

Scripts should be formatted at size 12 Courier.

The script file formats we accept are: PDF (preferred) Celtx, Final Draft, MovieMagic, RTF, DOC & TXT.

Please ensure your script is as close to the standard 80-120 pages as possible. Email us if you have any questions over the length of your script.

We accept all genres.

The winners agree to allow Shore Scripts to use their name and script title on the website. This will be used to inform other contestants and the media of the results.

Shore Scripts staff and associates are unable to enter.

The decision of the judging panel is final. All judges, staff, and sponsors are immune from any competition disputes.

If we see fit, we can extend the final deadline of the competition.
