If you’re on the TVWriter™ e-mail list, this message popped into your inbox this morning. If not – well, here ya go:
Well, actually it’s 6 and a half. But that’s a lot less time than it may seem cuz – ya gotta write, you know?
TVWriter™’s People’s Pilot contest has been around for years. In fact, this is the 23rd running. It’s for original series pilots, natch. As in your unique creations. Your television dreams.
There are over $5000 worth of prizes, and every entry receives free feedback on where it ranks in terms of both professional standards and its competitors this year.
In just the past couple of years, Winners, Finalists, or Semi-Finalists of the TVWriter™ contests have been on the staffs of CHICAGO PD, CHICAGO FIRE, PERSON OF INTEREST, THE WALKING DEAD, RIZZOLI AND ISLES, GREY’S ANATOMY, ROME, NTSF:SD:SUV, KILLER WOMEN, ANIMAL PRACTICE, and the upcoming HBO series THE LEFTOVERS. And that’s only the winners who’ve stayed in touch.
You too can be in this elite company. But first you have to write. Win or lose, that effort alone puts you ahead of 99% of the pack. And a finished spec pilot script is the currency of TV writing today. It’s the favored writing sample of showrunners and agents. The only thing better is a finished pilot script that’s scored at or near the top of – you guessed it – the People’s Pilot.
There’s lots more to tell about this highly respected contest, but our marketing maven says we should keep our e-mails as short as possible. So here are some links where you can find out all the rest:
