The Golden Script Competition is a yearly competition founded in Glasgow, UK, of short, feature and TV pilot screenplays from all around the world.
The best scripts of the 2022 edition will be read by some of the most renowned production companies & literary agencies (including some that have won several OSCARS and BAFTAS), giving you the chance to have your script produced or represented. Our mentors include two-time Oscar-winner Paul Haggis and three-time Emmy-nominee Jessica Sharzer (the latter to be reconfirmed for 2022).
One script will receive a $10,000 option fund from Lucky Elephant Media in the 2022 Edition. The top 15 FEATURE and 9 TV PILOT scripts of the year are eligible for the option fund. All eligible scripts will be read by Lucky Elephant Media, and thus more than one script can be considered for further options and development.
We promote our best scripts of each year by creating a list called The Golden List. It is then made available to producers and directors looking for unproduced scripts. For the chance to be included, submit now.
