Top Tier Competition

Now closed for entries

Roadmap Writers has helped over 230 screenwriters sign with industry representation (and counting) through our introductions! We pride ourselves on developing and working with the most promising up-and-coming screenwriters and partnering with the best and brightest industry professionals the entertainment world has to offer.

At the pinnacle of all our programs is the Top Tier Program, where the bulk of our screenwriting success stories come from.

Through the Top Tier Program, writers from all over the world have signed, staffed and sold to:

Netflix, CW, CAA, Zero Gravity Management, Amazon, 3 Arts, Gersh, Industry Entertainment, Echo Lake, FOX, Gotham Group, WME, A3, MGM, Anonymous Content, and more!

The Top Tier Program is for writers who exhibit a mastery of the scripted page, pitching fundamentals, and network relationship building who are ready to make screenwriting a career.

All Finalists will get industry exposure and their logline/bio circulated to execs from our roster.

The Grand Prize Winner of this competition will be accepted into Top Tier for FREE for an entire year!
