Discovering & Developing Writers since 1998
BlueCat provides two pieces of written feedback to the writer as a part of the entry fee, the only screenplay competition to do so. This ensures each screenplay is fairly judged and provided quality notes from professional readers.
Founded and judged by award-winning screenwriter Gordy Hoffman, BlueCat has developed a keen eye for exposing screenwriting talent through our diligent and committed analysis of each submission.
For nearly fifteen years, BlueCat’s recognition and development of undiscovered screenwriters from around the world has paved the way for many of our writers, including:
~ Signings by major agencies like UTA, CAA and WME.
~ Selling work to studios like Warner Bros, Paramount and Universal.
~And most importantly, seeing their work produced on the big screen.
In nearly every occasion, the awards and honor bestowed by BlueCat proved to be the first professional acknowledgment for the writer.
Recently, BlueCat winner THE MAN IN THE REVIEW MIRROR, by Andy Pagana and Justin Thomas, sold for low-mid six figures. And BlueCat Finalist Aaron Guzikowski’s CONTRABAND, starring Mark Wahlberg, was released by Universal.
