About Us

As one of the few screenwriting competitions for the LGBTQ community, our aim is to discover and recognize the best emerging talent and most original voices from our community in film and television writing from around the world. We are proud to be LGBTQ and even prouder to support the LGBTQ community. Members from our community have long been known for being the best artists in the world and we want to not only recognize them for that, but to support them in being talented as well as a member of our community. We go out of our way to find great new talent and place top new screenwriters firmly on the industry’s radar by designating them as finalists and winners in our competition based in the heart of the motion picture industry.

Winners and finalists will receive prizes and services from our industry leading partners as well as priceless industry exposure and meetings with some of Ne York and Hollywood’s biggest production companies and talent managers. In fact, we promise to deliver our winners’s scripts to over 40 production companies and talent representatives.

We also accept scripts from writers of all shapes and sizes from all background and all countries. You can be any ethnicity and be of any sexual orientation. You do not even have to be a member of the LGBTQ community to enter our contest and your script doesn’t have to be about our community to win. It simply has to be good. No two paths are the same, no two writers are the same, and as such no two stories are ever the same. We love them all as long as they are good.

The World’s Most Fabulous Screenwriting Competition!

Win and Gain Unparalleled Industry Access!

The Gay and Lesbian communities have been a vibrant force in Hollywood for decades and in the arts for centuries and we felt it was about time we had our own screenwriting festival. Not enough stories are being told about our communities so the LGBTQ Screenwriting Competition was founded to further the craft of screenwriting in and about the LGBTQ community and to inspire and support writers and producers looking to produce more film and television projects about our communities. So if you've written a great project about our community or you are simply a talented writer who is a member of our community please submit your project today!
