The Euroscript Screen Story Competition was launched fourteen
years ago in 1994 under the auspices of the European Union’s Media
II programme. Producers throughout Europe complained that European
scripts were going into production too early. In Hollywood,
it was argued, scripts commonly go to ten or eleven drafts whereas
in Europe it’s substantially fewer. In part, this is because
European Producers do not have the funds to pay writers to develop
their scripts adequately. It was to meet this need that the
Euroscript Screen Story Competition was launched.
Winners of the Euroscript Screen Story Competition write three
drafts of their script within a specified time period.
Working one-to-one with a script consultant they receive as much
face-to-face and written feedback as is required to complete each
of the three drafts. Once each draft is complete, they
receive a full script report, usually running to eight or nine
pages, together with an annotated script. At the end of the
process they are offered marketing advice.
