Beverly Hills Screenplay Contest

The Awards

Prizes and awards will be distributed to Winners across 14 official competition categories!

Also, in partnership with our industry leading sponsors, we actively publicize and promote the winners of the contest to both media and industry, helping to gain invaluable recognition within the community and hopefully kick-start a lucrative and successful career.


First, and most importantly, the very best screenplay entered into competition, as determined by the judges and chosen from among all competition categories, will be crowned the Grand Prize Winner, the contest’s highest and most prestigious award.

Next, our Official Judges will carefully select and award a Gold, Silver, and Bronze Winner for each of the official 14 competition categories.

Last but not least, 5 Official Finalists will be chosen from among the highest scored remaining entries in each official category.

Scrivener 2 Software

All Gold, Silver, and Bronze winners from the Action/Adventure & Comedy competition categories will receive a free download of screenwriting software Scrivener 2. 

Developed by Literature & Latte, Scrivener is a powerful content-generation tool for writers that allows you to concentrate on composing and structuring long and difficult documents. While it gives you complete control of the formatting, its focus is on helping you get to the end of that awkward first draft.
