Started in 2009, the Write of Passage Screenwriting Competition is a one-week, mentored competition, which teaches writers as they compete. The goal is to develop redemptive, inspirational stories that honor God. Submissions are 12-pages and are written in 168 hours, based on the theme and a foundational scripture.
Writers compete for cash, prizes, Hollywood introductions and expert critique from Hollywood insiders. Any Write of Passage script may be produced to screen at the 168 Film Festival as a Write of Passage Spotlight Film (See FAQ for details.)
Write of Passage utilizes participants called "Development Executives" (DE's) to judge the first round of the competition. DE's also compete for cash, Hollywood introductions and producer credits on resulting films. Write of Passage complements the 168 Film Project, allowing the best writers a chance to be seen onscreen.
The Write of Passage competition takes place annually in October.
