After the initial inter-category competition, Industrial Scripts is delighted to announce the Semi-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 Semi-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.Stephen King
I simply replaced the nail with a spike, and went on writing.”
(350m+ book copies sold)
Horror feature vs Horror feature, Series Bible vs Series Bible, Drama vs Drama, etc.
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.
