WHAT SOME OF OUR ENTRANTS HAVE TO SAY ABOUT US...

..
"I feel very fortunate and deeply honored to be a part of this competition.  The experience has been amazing.  It is the only time I have ever been asked to submit feedback, describe my goals and aspirations as a screenwriter and articulate what I hope the contest could do to help me in my career.  I’m thoroughly impressed." -Spencer Belgarian

As with any form of art, you don't choose to be a screenwriter. It chooses you. (With a vengeance.) It's good to know there are people out there who support the brave souls who have embarked on this journey." -Kurt Smith

"Extremely well organized and highly professional endeavor." -Melissa Howell

"I'm highly honored to be a finalist. Across the board, it seems like a rarity for any contest to advance Fantasy/Action screenplays. My experience has always been that the vast majority of scripts that advance are Dramas and Comedies. It goes to show that the American Screenwriting Contest uses extremely versatile readers able to judge any genre." -Phillip Daay
