Top 50 Pilots - 2018 JumpStart Writing Competition

Roadmap Writers is thrilled to announce our inaugural JumpStart Writing Competition Top 50’s!

Wow, what a fun journey these last few months have been! With entries from more than ten countries, we were delighted by the overwhelming number of great scripts we’ve read. Setting the stage for a truly competitive landscape.

With the JumpStart Competition our goal was to create a competition that would serve as a platform to help discover talented new voices and put their work directly in front of smart and hungry industry professionals. We also wanted to create a path for those who place in the various rounds of our competition, additional opportunities to sharpen their craft and receive valuable educational opportunities that will continue well beyond our announcement dates.

So while we still have a few weeks until we announce our Grand Prize Winners, we just wanted to take the time and say thank you for being a part of this year’s competition.

And now we’re pleased to announce the...
