Artists Alliance Short Screenplay Contest

Exclusively for shorts, the goal of the Artists Alliance Short Screenplay Contest is to recognize and reward the screenwriter, independent filmmaker, or ambitious writer-director who creates an exceptional and innovative short screenplay. 

“I give this screenplay competition a five star rating because, ONE, everything in the "About" section turned out to be true; TWO, the prize package is substantial for a small competition; and, THREE, when I won, the communication from Luke Affholter (who runs it) through emails, phone calls and follow-up emails, to make sure I was getting every part of my prize package, was most impressive. It's a smaller competition; But, they treat you the way a big competition should treat you...."

-Addison Bhuyan

2017 Grand Prize Winner

The 2017 contest is only open to residents of the United States due to the nature of the prize packages. We sincerely apologize to our previous supporters around the world, and will reassess this in the future as prize packages are evaluated.

Addison Bhuyan's short screenplay, "The Table Top Dancer" was awarded the 2017 Grand Prize Winner!

“The Artists Alliance Short Screenplay Competition was a great resume and writing builder. The grand prize of being flown out to LA for the Great American Pitch Festival was rewarding and supremely helpful for networking and further growth in my own career of screenwriting both personally and professionally. Excellent competition. I highly recommend it to all screenwriters.”
