Teen Screenwriting Competition

About the contest

Columbus College of Art & Design and Film Columbus present the 2020 Film Columbus Teen Screenwriting Competition, a free two-part screenwriting workshop for students ages 14–18 on Feb. 1 and 15, 2020, at CCAD.

The first workshop will cover the basics—from plot to protagonists—followed by a big homework assignment: writing a script. The second workshop will give students a chance to receive feedback on their work and hear from their peers and instructor.

Then, industry professionals will judge the scripts and select two winners, who will get to attend a three-week filmmaking workshop at CCAD in the summer and see their scripts turn into short, 3–5 minute movies.
