There are hundreds of screenwriting contests out there, but are they worth it? Screenwriting contests can be useful for: We all know how hard it is when you are unrepped to get the industry to read your script. Some contests have industry players on their judging panel, like my recent Script Angel contest in association with the London Screenwriters Festival.
Check their websites to find out what they are promising to do for you if you do win or place highly with them.
Most contests run at the same time every year so you can plan ahead. Knowing you need to get your script finished and polished by a certain date can be a great motivator.
Many screenwriting contests offer cash prizes. In my view, those offering cash but no exposure to the industry are to be approached with caution as in the long term what you most need is to be getting your script read by the people who can really help your screenwriting career.
That said, a substantial cash prize might buy you the time off from your job to really make progress with your screenwriting.
