CISS Awards & Prizes
The Canada International Screenwriters Summit gives awards in several competitive genres.
Up to three places will be selected for each category (one winner, two runners-up).
The categories are:
Less than 40 minutes
Feature Screenplay Awards
Apprentice Awards (Student Submissions Only)
Best Script to Short
Best Script to Feature
Best in Canada
Best in Festival (Overall)
The top screenplay overall will have the option to be table-read or live-screened during the Summit, and the top three screenplays selected will receive a lifetime license from WriterDuet.
The winners will also receive a Pro Badge to the 2017 Canada International Screenwriters Summit (est. value $500 CAD).
We believe in transparency as a crucial aspect of CISS. Thus, each script will be graded off the same evaluation sheet, which can you view at the link. If you wish to receive the evaluation after our announcement of the winners, please send a request with your name, the name of your script, and your contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
