"I highly recommend submitting to this festival. The staff is excellent with communications and the personal attention was greatly appreciated. Within a few days of my screenplay Scuppernongs being announced as a finalist, WWWF distributed my script to industry professionals and followed up with emails and phone calls to see how everything was going. Very positive experience, and I'm filled with appreciation and gratitude."
"I was very honored to be selected as a semifinalist, but since this is not an in person festival, I'm not sure about how much networking would come from it. However, overall I give the festival high ratings. The organizers have been wonderfully supportive of women-generated content and very communicative. I hope my placement brings attention to my script. "

"The Women Who Write in Film International Screenwriting Competition has truly exceeded my expectations. When I heard my script came in 2nd place, I was thrilled! Still am! I've already received an awesome InkTip prize package so I can promote my script and distribution of my script directly to industry professionals. You can't put a price on something like that!! The staff has been incredible, too. They are friendly, sincere, professional, and above all else it's obvious they really care. That's evident by the way they've followed through on all their promises and made sure to keep me in the loop while answering my questions and providing guidance every step of the way. If you're considering entering your script(s) in a contest, this would be an excellent choice! I'm so glad I did!"
