The Screenplay Award also allows authors - who have a great story - the chance to have their books adapted to film. For authors who don't know how to write a screenplay - they enter their story under the 'Book Adaptation Needed' category where the film producers will read it in novel format and if they like the story and option it for production, they will get a screenwriter to work with the author to create it as a screenplay.

Our judges are looking for captivating stories with potential to be adapted to film. These can be novels, novellas, true stories and memoirs. This is an opportunity not to be missed!

All Awards accept fiction and non-fiction in all genres.

Entrants from anywhere in the world can enter.
