The Chicago Screenplay Awards invites various writers, agents, producers, and actors to be part of the jury every season. No two seasons are ever the same. All scripts are judged based on the following: concept, story, character, dialogue, marketability, structure, and clarity. Quarter Finalists, Semi Finalists, Finalists, and Winners will be notified by email. Announcements will be made within 30 days following final submission deadline. We reserve the right to amend these rules at any time. We offer full screenplay coverage, submissions will be read by at least one of our expert script readers listed above. We wish you the best of luck of the finest screenwriting contest Chicago has to offer! Read our blog for valuable screenwriting resources.
