There are a buh-zillion screenplay competitions out there, and most of them charge a fee. Unless you have a money tree in your backyard, I recommend you be a little picky with how you choose your competitions to enter. If you're using a competition as street cred (which is one of the only reasons to do it) then I also recommend that you only submit to respected competitions that people know and admire. Again, if you can afford to submit to them all, go nuts. But if you can't, I'd like to recommend the following 16 competitions to focus on. If you can't place in any of these, maybe (maybe) your script needs a little more work.
