From Script Pipeline:
Originally launched in 2002 as the Script P.I.M.P. (Pipeline Into Motion Pictures) competition, the contest sets its sights on discovering new and up-and-coming creative talent worldwide. 

The Script Pipeline contest as a whole has grown significantly over the past eight years and is now one of the largest competitions in the world as far as global reach and number of entrants.  In 2010, over 3,000 screenplays were received for the Screenwriting and TV Writing Competitions combined, thus far the biggest season yet and indicative of a steady growth over the last several years. The total monetary prizes increased in 2010 as well to $20,000 distributed across the top 20 finalist and winning writers.   

But Script Pipeline goes beyond simply awarding cash to screenwriters. Like a small handful of other competitions, our finalists are given industry circulation to approximately 200 qualified companies, including agents and managers, looking for new material.  Yet, unlike any other amateur screenwriting competition, finalists are given true one-on-one assistance. 
Here's a breakdown of what ALL finalists receive, beyond prizes:
  • Phone or in-person consultation with Script Pipeline's Director of Development to review the screenplay and receive additional, detailed notes 
  • Assistance in polishing the finalist's script before circulation
  • Query/logline review by one or more analysts 
  • A separate meeting with a Script Pipeline consultant to discuss marketability and strategy when sending out their work--who's looking for what, the current state of development, and most anything concerning the business side of the spec world
  • Access to active managers and producers looking for specific types of writers for paid writing assignments (*dependent on what leads we have at that time of the year).
  • The opportunity to send other screenplays or treatments to Script Pipeline for review by our Director of Development
  • Additional types of mentorship and professional support, such as help in navigating the industry from a career standpoint, or linking up with other talent for the purposes of self-producing 
The intent here is to not only support dedicated screenwriters as long as necessary, but allow our industry contacts to continuously receive upper-echelon material from current and previous finalists, with the ultimate goal of seeing these scripts financed and produced.
