2022 Script Competition
A record number of scripts were submitted in a variety of genres this year, and we had a really hard time narrowing down the semi-finalists and finalists. But, after many discussions, we did it!
The top four scripts were read live by some terrific actors on Sunday, November 20, at 5pm. The 1st place-winning writer received $500, a copy of FinalDraft software, and a 1-hour consultation with the Roadmap Writers executive of their choice!
Our juror for the 2022 Script Competition awards is screenwriter and sought-after story analyst, Scott Myers. Scott has written over 30 projects at nearly every major Hollywood studio and broadcast network and his book, The Protagonist’s Journey: An Introduction to Character-Driven Screenwriting and Storytelling, is a best seller on Amazon.
