2018 Spring Grand Prize Winner and Finalists


2018’s finalists were distributed to fifty plus production companies that support female writers and our industry database is growing every year!!! Our top three finalists also received personal introductions to multiple talent agents and managers.

“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!”

“Amazing communication! An honor to have been a winner!”

“I was extremely happy to be a finalist for my screenplay “An Unbalanced Line” ! What a great event —for women/by women who are under represented in the film industry. Thank you for such a great opportunity to showcase our work and speak our voice to the world!”
