What is The Golden List?

Each year in July, we promote our best 30 scripts in the competition by creating a list called a Golden List. We then make the list available to most of our partners, as well as to creative executives, producers or directors who can find more information about the scripts there with the option to request them. In 2022, Lucky Elephant Media will offer a $10,000 option fund to one FEATURE or TV PILOT script from the list. All eligible scripts will be read by Lucky Elephant Media, and thus more than one script can be considered for further options and development. Note that except from our partners and our direct contacts, no one else will be able to read the scripts without the consent of the writer/s.

How does one qualify for The Golden List?

One would need to simply submit to our competition. If they win or get nominated (while still placed in the TOP 30), they will be included.

How is the list divided?

We include our best 15 feature scripts, 9 TV pilots and 6 short scripts of the year.

What happens when someone requests one's script?

When someone requests a script, we will forward their e-mail address to the writers/authors directly.

Are optioned screenplays excluded from the list?

To be featured on the list, a script must not be optioned at the moment of the yearly list announcement (end of July of each year). If a script has been optioned prior to that, we will replace it with the next script that adheres to this rule based on its placement in the competition. Even so, we cannot guarantee its availabilty.
