Writers and filmmakers can submit to The TITAN Awards in six different formats, and the contest accepts pitches, short film scripts, feature screenplays, TV pilots, series bibles, and more.
In addition to the outright winners, genre category winners will also be announced, and these will range from Best Action Feature to Best Series Bible to Best TV Drama.
The three outright winners of The TITAN Awards will be announced in December 2021 and will receive: one year’s continuous script and career promotion; project-specific support from Industrial Scripts; marketing to the IS industry roster of executives, agents, managers, and producers; a formal introduction to the three judges (who will also read their work); cash awards, writing software and more.
Open only to writers and filmmakers who have earnt less than $50,000 from writing services in the preceding year, the contest will also award a special prize for the leading diverse script featuring underrepresented voices, and recognise the best “Wildcard” – one writer with obvious, if unvarnished, talent.
After due consideration, the three “titans” will exclusively determine the Gold-Silver-Bronze order of merit, and the prizes will be awarded in late 2022.
JOHN WICK Producer Basil Iwanyk commented: “I don’t like writers who are perfectly cookie cutter-ish. So to be able to read them before they start adjusting to fit their perceived audience in showbiz is really exciting to me…”
ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD Producer Shannon Mcintosh said: ““I’m thrilled to be involved with this year’s TITAN awards because it’s a tremendous opportunity for fresh and exciting voices to find a platform to stand on and grow from…”
BREAKING BAD Producer Karen Moore commented: “Having judged the inaugural TITAN, I found it a lovely surprise to read the 2021 winners and am excited to uncover more fresh voices in 2022…”
