The Launch Pad Competition, in exclusive partnership with Verve, Good Fear Film + Management and Romark Entertainment is thrilled to announce the Top 100 finalists for the 2018/2019 Launch Pad Feature Competition.
Year Six is here, and the competition that has led to more signings, success stories and careers than any other writing competition in the world is now underway. With more than 403 signings, 134 projects set up, 61 writers staffed, 150 appearances on annual best of lists such as the Black List, Blood List, Hit List, and the Young & Hungry List, as well as 6 bidding wars, the Launch Pad Competition has become the premiere hub for Hollywood discovering new talent. We’re thrilled to see this new list of writers joining our Launch Pad community!
This year our Top 100 comes to us from 108 writers hailing from 6 countries across the globe. From the frozen seas of Europa to the haunted forests of Chernobyl, from post-apocalyptic landscapes to the violent truths of our own pasts, these scripts imagine thrilling, harrowing, hilarious and emotional stories that transcend place and time.
ADD-ON PRIZES (SIGNING, OPTION, MENTORSHIP PROGRAM):
For those of you who added the Signing, Option and Mentorship prizes to your submission, this is a reminder that those prizes are selected independently of the overall competition, so even if you were not selected as part of the Top 100, you are still very much in the running for all of those prizes. In keeping with previous competitions, those winners will be announced alongside the overall winners.
As a reminder, all feedback notes are sent out in tandem with the top 10 announcement!
And now, without further ado, let us introduce you to the Top 100 finalists of the 2018 Launch Pad Feature Competition!
