Alex and Nick invite Jorge Gonzalez, from the Tracking Board and Launch Pad Writing Competitions, to discuss what makes a contest-winning script.
How does the selection process of a TV writing competition work? What do readers look for when evaluating scripts and pilots? What separates top-tier screenplays from all others? What should writers watch out for before submitting their scripts?
The Paper Team strikes gold…
Getting involved with Tracking Board, the Launch Pad Competitions, selection process, what readers look for, finding top-tier scripts, common mistakes and faux pas, overdone tropes and cliches, what happens after the win, maximizing the opportunities, and notable success stories (00:54)
