48 Screenwriters Compete For a Free Trip to LA to Pitch TV Shows (Exclusive)

Pilot Launch The Wrap

The winners of the Pilot Launch TV Script Competition will be flown to Los Angeles to meet with agents and managers

ScreenCraft and Script Chix have selected 48 semifinalists for its 2013 Pilot Launch TV Script Competition, the companies announced Thursday. The screenwriting consultants picked 25 scripts in both the drama and comedy categories.

Two screenwriters, Lily Blau and Scott Wascha, landed two scripts on the list.

ScreenCraft and Script Chix will select one grand prize winner in each category, and those amateur scribes will earn a free trip to Los Angeles for meetings with agents, managers and TV executives.

“Our mission is to help connect talented emerging screenwriters with top companies and producers who need good scripts,” ScreenCraft co-founder John Rhodes said in a statement.

ScreenCraft and Script Chix received more than 500 entries for the competition, which is its third competition of this nature. It already launched contests for horror and comedy film scripts. The winners of this contest will get to stay for free at the Culver Hotel, a site once home to Frank Sinatra and Clark Gable.

The first and second place winners will also receive free subscriptions to the PowerGrid.
