Announcing The 2022 TITAN Awards Quarter-Finalists

After the initial inter-category competition, Industrial Scripts is delighted to announce the Quarter-Finalists of The 2022 TITAN Screenwriting Contest.

The full list of qualifiers is below.

Even in the contest’s second year, the situation was highly competitive and there were a great many writers and projects that impressed.

So it’s a big congratulations to those who made the Quarter-Finals, and a sincere message to those who didn’t, that this is by no means the final word on their project.

To all entrants, it’s worth recalling an attitude – nay, the only attitude – which gets writers ahead in any creative arena:

“By the time I was fourteen, the nail in my wall would no longer support the weight of the rejection slips impaled upon it.

I simply replaced the nail with a spike, and went on writing.”

Stephen King

The Quarter-Finalists by Category

The TITAN Awards is a screenwriting contest whereby material competes against its own kind for as long as possible over the course of a contest cycle.

Horror feature vs Horror feature, Series Bible vs Series Bible, Drama vs Drama, etc.

In 2022 writers could elect to compete in 10 different categories.

Accordingly, here are the names and project titles of those who progressed in their respective category.

  1. Is it possible for a script that didn’t get to the quarter finals to still be in consideration for the Wild Card? Or is it included in those who were announced?

    Reply
    • Hi Peter, The TITAN has never had an out-and-out historical category, so any period scripts would compete in whichever core category their writers thought most appropriate at the point of submission. Hope this clarifies.
