The 9th Annual 20016 Script Pipeline TV Writing Contest is searching for the next extraordinary television writer. As a community of aspiring TV writers continue to prove their skills with both specs and original pilots, the level of talent has skyrocketed–and the demand for more quality TV material is higher than ever before.

Facilitating connections between new writers and leading TV producers, managers, and agencies has proven remarkably successful, with numerous Pipeline writers finding elite representation and gaining crucial introductions to otherwise impossible-to-reach industry execs. The result thus far is over $5 million in screenplays and TV pilots sold from competition finalists and “Recommend” writers since 2003. Last season, over 5,000 scripts were entered in the Screenwriting and TV Writing contests combined, making Script Pipeline one of the leading companies reviewing spec material.

Finalists are given exposure to Script Pipeline industry partners, approximately 200 qualified contacts, and the following:

  • $10,000 to winner, $1,000 to runner-up
  • Consultations with Script Pipeline’s Director of Development and Senior Consultant
  • Personal introductions to managers, producers, agents, and others searching for new TV material, tailored to each individual project
  • Additional material review for potential circulation
  • Exclusive invitation to private industry/writer events throughout the year

Our intent: to circulate exceptional material industry-wide, support our writers long-term, and launch careers.

Final deadline is May 1st, 2016. Writers are encouraged to submit early, as the entry fee goes up after the deadline windows. Email our contest coordinator at if you have any questions.
