Moxie Films New Century Writer Awards® Screenplay and Stage Play - The Moxie Films New Century Writer Awards® (NCWA) was established to provide a valuable outlet to recognize the quality screenplays, and stage plays of both unpublished writers and emerging writers with minor or few creative writing credits. We provide cash awards to the Top 3 writers in each of our creative writing contests since monetary awards help legitimize and validate a writer's good hard work.
In addition to cash prizes the 1st place stage play will be produced in New York City through MoxieStage, our theatre division, at an off-off Broadway venue for a one-week run minimum. 2nd and 3rd place stage plays will each receive one public reading in New York City at an off-off Broadway venue. Selected Top screenplay will be optioned for an 18-month period, and receives cash. 2nd and 3rd place receive cash, and a public reading each.
Now in its seventh year of successful operation, the New Century Writer Awards® is an annual writing competition series. Of the more than three-hundred writing competition for creative writings in the English language in existence across the globe, the New Century Writer Awards® brand is among the largest in terms of the prize awards purse, affiliations, scope, and name recognition.
Since its inception the New Century Writer Awards® has awarded 144 creative writers with $81,700 in cash, fellowship and scholarship prizes, connected numerous writers to agency representation, editorial and film studio contacts, and raised $20,000 in independent financing for the production of a film based on one of New Century's Top 10 alumnus, Lisa Kors.
The Moxie Films NCWA seeks quality, character driven stories in all genres to consider for further development and production in association with one or more of our alliance companies and independent producers.
The final judges of each annual contest include industry producers, directors, film marketing professionals, fiction writers, playwrights, fiction editors, screenwriters, executive producers, and literary agents.
