Fashioned in a way to give writers optimum value and worthwhile experience,10 finalists will be selected by a jury and invited to a weeklong online residency where their scripts will be analyzed by veterans and industry experts, in order to give the writers unrivaled opportunity at receiving helpful tips and reworking their scripts.

The winner and the runners-up will be selected by a panel of judges based on transparent evaluations.
