If you didn’t see your name on these lists, don’t be discouraged. This doesn’t mean your script didn’t have professional polish or show great promise. Scriptmatix does its best to bring the infrastructure and technology to ensure that the correct writers are selected and acknowledged and we acknowledge that regardless of any systems in place that could make these selections more objective, subjectivity is impossible to eliminate from the process. A contest is an appraisal of where you stand amongst the field. We aim to bring the most honest and meritocratic form of a screenplay contest to you and hope this doesn’t come as a discouragement, but rather an encouragement to continue forward. If you’re wondering what you could’ve done to place higher, each of your analyses in your dashboard has a link to book a meeting with your analyst, who – along with a head of development – is ready and willing to discuss your project in detail and make exacting recommendations.

As an overview, we thought this pool of submissions was fairly standard, with a lot of high-potential writers who (with further development) can enter the threshold of preparedness for the marketplace. Thanks to every screenwriter who was involved in this season. We hope you found your experience with Scriptmatix beneficial, and we hope you stick around with us as your source of reliable access to the marketplace and high-level consulting, development, and screenplay evaluation.
