Event Details

It’s the most wonderful time of the year- time to secure your seat at our Screenwriting Intensive workshop, “Tips for SIP”!
In our #TipsforSIP Screenwriting Workshop with Brian Wade, we expose what makes an award-winning screenplay in preparation of deadlines for our 2019 “Set in Philadelphia” Screenwriting Competition (SIP)!

? Submission deadlines are right around the corner. And like any competition, screenplays are evaluated according to a set of rules- this keeps the judging honest and the quality of winners high. We want to help you get prepared!

With a total of over $20,000 in cash prizes at stake, don’t miss a chance to review some of the main scoring criteria our SIP Judges use to evaluate your screenplay, for example: Premise, Visual Quality, Plot, Innovation, and Ending. ?
