Each contest winner (Feature, Short, Episodic 30-min, Episodic 60-min) will additionally receive:

 

One year complimentary subscription to Celtx Writer Pro

Our friends and partners at Celtx will offer a one year subscription to their Celtx Writer Pro for free to the winner of the competition, which will help them unlock their inner pro with robust writing, episodic and story development tools.

  • A place on our newly-developed 10-week fellowship programme 

The Raindance Fellowship programme is a 10-week, online programme designed to afford writers the opportunity to develop their craft, interact with peers and receive constructive criticism from an industry tutor.

Additionally, all Finalists will be invited to connect with collaborators during the festival at the Script Competition Networking Drinks event, a year of Raindance membership and complimentary accreditation to our festival.

All Semi-Finalists will receive a year of Raindance membership and a 50% discount to festival accreditation.

Ensuring opportunities are created across the board, Raindance is also proud to offer discounts (25%) on membership and festival accreditation to those placing Quarter-Finalist in the competition.
