“Highly recommend the Scriptation Showcase competition for screenwriters. Excellent judging, communication and marketing of the contest. Was so honored that my short script, The Last Creation, made it all the way through as a Finalist. They also have a great app, be sure to check that out as well. All around it is a great way for screenwriters to showcase their best work. Thank you, Scriptation team!”
