TITAN Screenwriting Contest

Announcing the 2023 TITAN Awards Quarter-Finalists

After the initial inter-category competition, Industrial Scripts is delighted to announce the Quarter-Finalists of The 2023 TITAN Screenwriting Contest.

The full list of qualifiers is below.

Even in the contest’s third 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
