The DC Shorts Screenplay Competition is a very different kind of screenwriting competition. A panel of judges consisting of filmmakers, screenwriters and critics reviewed over 145 screenplays — and selected the top 6 to be performed for you! After a table reading, the audience will vote for their favorite, and one lucky writer will walk away with $2,000 to shoot their project! The completed film will screen at DC Shorts 2018.
