Posted: 4th May 2016

Shore Scripts aim to discover new exciting screenwriting talent from around the world, putting the best scripts into the hands of the producers, production companies and agents that have the means to get them made.

Shore Scripts has amassed a roster of the most respected industry Judges of any screenwriting competition in the world. They include both Oscar and BAFTA winners, and the Heads of Production at Working Title Films and Ridley Scott’s, Scott Free Films. All 21 Judges on the panel will read the winning scripts. There are over 100 Production Companies and agents attached to read the best scripts that Shore Scripts send through to them each year. These do not have to be winning scripts, if screenplay is strong enough, and a good fit with a production company’s slate, then it will be sent through with the writer’s prior consent (read all about Shore Script’s writers’ Alumni here)
