  • You must submit a 200 word (or less) synopsis of the screenplay with your entry.
  • By submitting your work to this competition, you agree to the rules and terms outlined in the rules and release agreement.  
  • While this is a horror screenplay contest, we will consider SciFi/Fantasy/Romance/Comedy/etc. concepts as long as they have the horror element.

  • Screenplays must not be any longer than 13 pages but can be as short as one page.

  • You can choose whether your entry is made available for production in the Frightfilm Competition. You can withhold it or use it yourself in the competition.  Frightfilm Competition will have its own unique set of requirements(elements).  Frightwrite scripts will need to be adapted to incorporate these requirements.
  • All submissions must have been written originally in English. (No translations accepted.)
  • You may submit more than one screenplay, but you’ll need to pay an additional submission fee for each additional script.
