Blue Sky Scriptwriting Contest

Hollywood, Health & Society launches its first Blue Sky Scriptwriting Contest now accepting entries for TV stories that take place in a future in which we would actually aspire to live and thrive. Instead of the standard dystopian landscape, think environmental sustainability, a fair and equitable society, and a world without war.

After entries are judged, HH&S will award five fellowships of $7,500 each and announce those finalists at the Sentinel Awards in October. In addition to the cash award, the finalists will also receive mentorships and expert consultations for script revisions. One grand prize of $20,000 will be awarded in early 2023. The contest is in partnership with the Future of Life Institute, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Writers Guild of America East.

There’s no entry fee. The deadline is Aug. 1, 2022.
