Alongside our exclusive competition partners Bad Idea and Recon Literary, we are thrilled to announce the winners for the 2019 Launch Pad Pilot Competition.
The Launch Pad Competitions have led to more than 450 signings, 164 projects set up, 68 writers staffed, 7 bidding wars, and 156 appearances on annual best of lists such as the Black List, Blood List, Hit List, and the Young & Hungry List. This latest group of winning writers promises to continue that tradition of success.
Every year, the quality of submissions seems to get better and better, and this year’s competition is no exception. We are honored to have been able to read such an imaginative, innovative and skillful collection of scripts from writers across the globe, and we look forward to sharing that work with the industry. We want to thank our judges for taking the time to read our finalists and make the difficult decisions that give us this fantastic group of winners.
With all of that said, we’re incredibly proud to announce our Overall Winner, Top Comedy Winner, Top Drama Winner, Recon Literary Guaranteed Signing Winner, Bad Idea Guaranteed Option Winner, and the three Launch Pad Mentorship Winners.
Congratulations to our winners and to all of our finalists. We cannot wait to see what comes next!
