Contest Notes


Established in 2000, the Script Pipeline Workshop is one of the longest-running notes services in the industry, offering feedback on screenplays, pilots, and pitches for film and television. Hundreds of writers each year, from beginners to professionals, benefit from the expertise of a small, seasoned group of development execs, many of whom are active writers and producers themselves.

Similar in content to our General Notes, the Contest Notes provide our contest entrants with greater insight into their submitted materials. Writers may also follow up with their reader with additional questions and can submit an updated draft to their respective contests based on the feedback, provided we receive before the final contest deadline.

Contest Notes - an overall analysis of what's working and what needs improvement in the script, focusing on broader areas such as:

  • Character development
  • Plot / Structure
  • Other Concerns (examples of typos, sentence structure, overall presentation, etc.)
