About the reno-tahoe screenplay contest

The second year of the Reno-Tahoe Screenplay Contest is now accepting submissions.

The specs from our first year:

            —Six writers produced!

            —Seven writers optioned or hired on assignment!


The winner of the short script contest will get their script optioned and produced (a value of up to $20,000)* and the winners of the feature and TV pilot categories will get a proof-of-concept scene from their script produced (a value of $5,000 each).

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 Spring and Summer 2021 contests can be watched here!  Winners of Fall 2021 contest are in pre-production.

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 prize is non-exchangeable, non-transferable, and is not redeemable for cash or other prizes.
