The 12th Great Movie Idea Contest and 10th Great TV Show Idea competitions are searching for original, innovative material. Ideally, groundbreaking concepts that are both marketable and fresh--something a global, diverse audience can connect with.

Accepted entries include loglines, synopses, video pitches, or full treatments. Completed screenplays are not reviewed, nor are entrants required to have a completed script. You only need one spectacular idea. Any market, studio or indie.

Script Pipeline provides additional development assistance to polish the pitch, or help the writer complete a circulation-ready screenplay. At that point, we connect the winner with top studio producers, including execs from Lakeshore Entertainment (Age of AdalineMillion Dollar Baby), Good Fear Film + Management (RingsPolaroid), and other major companies looking for new concepts.
