Yes, Scriptapalooza TV is an international competition, we accept scripts from all over the world.
We prefer you submit spec scripts of current TV shows. That is the industry standard.
Well, considering if you write both the story and the script for a network episodic, you can receive as much as $18,160. One hour episodics are $26,710. (please refer to the WGA website for current schedule of minimum payment) We'd say it was worth checking out. And besides, writing is writing, if you can follow a format and write a screenplay, you can do the same with TV.
You can submit an original concept for a series (pilot) or a spec script on an existing show (one hour program or sitcom). We give the writer a choice in sending either one or both.
One hour drama - Yellowstone, The Crown and The Blacklist.
Sitcom - Lopez vs Lopez, Young Rock and Abbot Elementary.
Reality Show - The Bachelor, Project Runway and Real Housewives.
Yes, we do accept reality shows.
We are letting the writer decide because he/she might have a great idea for a pilot but no spec scripts on an existing show or vice-versa. We are creating more opportunities without leaving anyone out.
Yes, but a separate fee and entry form must be sent in for each.
