search cancel – The Community-Sourced Screenplay is launching, in association with respected management/production company Benderspink, a truly innovative screenwriting competition open to aspiring writers and movie lovers everywhere.


The contest will provide a unique opportunity to those who have always thought they could write a screenplay to play an essential role in a potential Hollywood blockbuster.

The idea behind the web-based Cowrite contest is to have writers throughout the country collaborate on a movie script based on a posted story premise. The script will be written in ten-page increments based on contestant submissions.

Every other week, the best ten-page script submission ($10 per 10 page entry) selected by the Cowrite judges will be added to the developing story until the script is finished and ready to be sold. There will be eleven winners over the six-month contest. Each winner will receive money and prizes totaling $3,000, a pitch meeting with Benderspink, and a chance to win the grand prize of a paid rewrite of the script. All winners will also share in any potential script sale proceeds.

Another exciting aspect of the Cowrite website is the ‘Pro’s Take’ section where professional screenwriters and industry professionals will offer comments and suggestions on the developing story, as well as insight into how to get started in Hollywood.
