What makes 100 Screenplays different? The difference in 100 Screenplays begins with how it was created. Screenplay Festival, the parent company of 100 Screenplays, accepts an unlimited number of scripts just as all other screenwriting competitions do. A direct effect of accepting so many screenplays is that it takes several months to determine the winner.
One of the judges for Screenplay Festival had an idea, “What if we had a contest where we limited the number of entries to one hundred? We could get them read quickly and select the winner very quickly.” This idea was thrown around the office until it grew into 100 Screenplays.
Now, instead of sending off their script and having to wait ages to hear the results, screenwriters can send in their scripts and find out who won in no time. And those writers will also never have to wonder how many scripts they are up against. (This is one of the most common questions Screenplay Festival receives.) They are in a pool of one hundred scripts, and their chance of winning is vastly increased by the smaller number of scripts accepted into each contest.
