Curated, Trusted Contests Only

We do our homework on a contest, fellowship, or lab before inviting it to Coverfly. We know the administrators on a first name basis. We know their evaluation process and scoring structure. We reach out to and interview the past winners to ensure that they’re delivering the value they promise.

There’s no “sign up” form for programs that want to be on Coverfly. Their administrators have to talk with us and go through an application process to be listed on Coverfly. We only accept organizations we trust.

Peer-to-Peer Script Notes

The coverflyX script exchange allows users to give or receive peer script notes with other writers on Coverfly via a free token-bidding system. Readers have five days upon claiming feedback to complete their notes, which consist of 300 words on the strengths of the script, 300 words on the weaknesses of the script, and an optional section for any additional thoughts.

Coverfly gave our screenplay valuable exposure to industry management. After years of hard work, it was through Coverfly that we were introduced to our manager. Not only was the Coverfly staff amazingly proactive, they were communicative every step of the way, which is a blessing for emerging screenwriters.

People have been handing me scripts and pitching me movie ideas for years. Having one central database to find the best projects that already have coverage and are pre-vetted by professional readers is amazing.
