2008 BlueCat Screenplay Competition Deadline Approaching


* Winner receives $10,000
* Four finalists receive $1500
* Every writer receives a written script analysis of their screenplay

Now in its 10th year, the BlueCat Screenplay Competition has discovered more successful writers and provided more support through our analysis and feedback to more writers than any screenplay competition in the world.

We are the leading voice for the development and inspiration of the undiscovered screenwriter, and our community welcomes you to challenge yourself by entering your screenplay in the 2008 competition!


Who is BlueCat?

We are a writing competition founded in 1998 by a writer and judged by the same writer for its entire history.

We're not a film festival, an agency or media corporation, or the arm of a corporate studio.

We are for screenwriters only!

Who are the writers BlueCat discovers?

Andy Stock and Rick Stempson (2005 Winners) has a second script in production: THE GOODS: THE DON READY STORY, produced by Will Farrell and starring Jeremy Piven and Ving Rhames

Lance Hammer (2004 Finalist) recently won the 2008 Sundance Directing Award for BALLAST---on to Berlin!

Andy Pagana (2004 Winner) is directing for DIE HARD producer, BlueCat winner under second option after winning 2006 Austin

Young Kim's (2006 Winner) script HYUNG'S OVERTURE attached to HITCH producer Teddy Zee after development in Pusan

Ana Lily Amirpour's (2007 Winner) THE STONES slated for production this year

How does every writer who enters BlueCat actively change as a writer?

We provide over 600 words of analysis on every script we receive, carefully written by readers handpicked by our judge, giving the beginning writer and the seasoned pro an objective opinion on their work.

Over the course of our history, we have given over 7000 writers feedback on their screenplay for simply entering, at no additional cost.

Would you like an honest, unguarded reaction to your screenplay?

Does BlueCat have the largest award in the world?

We offer the largest cash prize ($16,000) for a screenplay contest that provides written analysis to every entrant than any other competition. There are no additional fees to get our feedback on your script.

We take pride in rewarding all writers for their commitment to their goal and their dream!
