The BlueCat Screenplay Competition: Â Deadline: November 15th ($65)
Discovering and Developing Writers Since 1998
Founded by a writer, the BlueCat Screenplay Competitionâ€™s passionate commitment to develop and discover the unknown screenwriter continues to define our work today.
Our Winners and Finalists have been signed by major talent agencies like UTA, CAA and WME, sold their work to studios like Warner Bros., Paramount and Universal, and won major awards at the Sundance, Berlin and Tribeca Film Festivals, all after being discovered by and winning BlueCat.
We provide each writer who enters BlueCat two written analyses, ensuring each entry is reviewed by two readers, while supporting screenwriters of all levels and stages of development with the constructive feedback all writers require.

The Cordelia Award will be given to the best screenplay from the UK and will win $1000.

“How great to get these analyses — and from astute and careful readers. Their comments both encourage and challenge me to really examine how to make this script as good as it can be. Thanks again! – Cornelia R., 2012 Entrant
