Started in 2006, the Harvardwood Writers' Competition was created to give emerging Harvard writers the opportunity to gain industry exposure and to recognize superior work. The contest includes these three categories:

1) Feature screenplays (90-120 pp., all genres)
2) Television pilots (30-min and 60-min, all genres)
3) Shorts (30-pp. maximum, no minimum)

The deadline for submissions will be Thursday, July 31st at 11:59 PM Pacific Time. Scripts will be evaluated by industry professionals, and winners in each category will be announced in September. First-place writers will receive a cash award and free admission to the 2014-15 writers’ program.
