About the reno-tahoe screenplay contest

The 4th season of the Reno-Tahoe Screenplay Contest is now accepting submissions.

The specs from 4 cycles (seasons 2021-2022):

            —12 writers produced!

            —8 writers optioned or hired on assignment!


The winner of the short script contest will get their script optioned and produced and the winners of the feature and TV pilot categories will get an audio recording (also called table read) of their full screenplay with professional actors and a director.

Three winners also receive 1-year Screenwriting Staffing Membership and 10 pitches from Virtual Pitch Fest!

All entries receive top-tier analysis

Unlike other competitions, our winners also work side by side with producers to develop their work and push the screenwriter closer to production. 

Winning films from our 2021 and 2022 contests can be watched here!  Our Cycle 1 and 2 winning short films are distributed worldwide as part of Twilight Season 1 (also available on Tubi TV)!

Winners of Cycle 3 and 4 will be part of Twilight Season 2!

Our goal is not only to find the best scripts possible, but to provide resources that edify creators from Nevada and across the globe, and bring them to the forefront of our rapidly growing film community. 

The prizes are non-exchangeable, non-transferable, and not redeemable for cash or other prizes.
