The Book Pipeline Fiction Competition is open to unpublished and published books, graphic novels or comics, short stories, and plays for film/TV adaptation consideration. There are no genre restrictions, and judging criteria is weighed evenly between concept originality, marketability in the current landscape, and overall writing talent. Now in its 6th season, Book Pipeline seeks new properties to connect with producers for development at all levels–from big-budget studio films and series, to smaller indies.
Every entrant receives general feedback on their submission, specifically on its adaptation potential. Comments are emailed after final judging is completed.
