The West Field Screenwriting Awards are for writer's and their work. Based solely on the merit of the script and not necessarily the experience of the writer. Awarding excellence in the field of screenwriting, the WFSA is judged by screenwriters for screenwriters, as there is no better or truthful recognition than that of your peers. The West Field Screenwriting Awards are a unique experience for any writer, whether its your first script, your hundredth or even your life's work. WFSA is here to recognize those works that are elevated above the rest based solely on its content and creative merits.

The West Field Screenwriting Awards were created in 2011 by award winning screenwriter Jim Powers for the simple purpose of awarding others for the merit of their work. To do this he enlisted the help of industry insiders, multi-award winning directors, producers, professional writers, and actors to read and select.

Your screenplay will be read by these film professionals, who will evaluate the script based on an 8 point grading system, complete with checks and balances, the entire team will find the script that they see fit to be awarded "The Birch"

Its easy to get lost in the world of screenwriting, so thats why WFSA was started. Being selected for a WFSA is a mark of talent, but also a hand through the door. There is no denying that pitching an award winning screenplay is much easier than pitching one that has no track record.

This is a screenplay competition and will be judged solely on the quality of storytelling and creative merit of the work.
Only accepting of screenplays which are original works.
