Our Winners Work!
Now in its 22nd year, the Fade In Awards is proud to introduce nine distinct contests for you to enter in 2018. Submit a script or short film to the Fade In Awards Short Script/Short Film Contest. With twenty-one years experience spotting, mentoring and introducing talented new screenwriters and filmmakers to the Hollywood community, our winners have gone on to both sign with major Hollywood talent agencies ICM, UTA, CAA, WME and have their winning screenplay/teleplay made into feature films and television shows (e.g., The Blacklist, Hard Powder (2018), Blades of Glory, Adam, Office Christmas Party, If Only).
The Blacklist Executive Producer/Creator Jon Bokenkamp calls his decision to enter the Fade In Awards, “The most important moment in my career.”
The Fade In Awards deliver by working closely with finalists to make sure their winning entry gives them the best chance at launching their filmmaking career. That’s why Hollywood’s A-list buyers and reps call the Fade In Awards one of the best screenplay contests and short film competitions in the world to enter.
“When CBS Studios producer Todd Nelson encouraged me to submit,” says Bokenkam, “my inclination was to say, ‘No.’ I remember thinking there was no way I could afford it. But my script Preston Tylk won and got me an [CAA] agent. It was huge for me.” Bokenkamp went on to work with Angelina Jolie and Halle Berry on Taking Lives and Perfect Stranger, respectively.
The Fade In Awards Short Script/Short Film Competition is open to aspiring screenwriters of short screenplays and filmmakers of short films. Judges are looking for compelling stories featuring well-drawn characters that could easily translate to a feature film. All genres welcome.
