Event Details

Join us on January 17th for our Tips for SIP Screenwriting Workshop with Brian Wade where we will cover what makes an award-winning screenplay in preparation of our 2018 “Set in Philadelphia” Screenwriting Competition (SIP)!

The 2018 “Set In Philadelphia” (SIP) Screenwriting Competition submissions deadlines are right around the corner.  And, like any competition, SIP scripts 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, we thought you might want to meet up and review some of the main scoring criteria our SIP Judges use to evaluate your screenplay, for example:

  • Premise
  • Visual Quality
  • Plot
  • Innovation
  • Ending
