The Capital Fund Screenplay Competition, where your scripts are read direct by investors that buy projects and fund films at the studio level domestically and abroad.
The Capital Fund Screenplay Competition does offer money, prestige, and the possibility of industry exposure. But the object is to get your movie made and make investors happy.
To sell your script and get your movie made, which will in turn launch your career (and get you an agent).
When you enter, you get a direct read by the money people that make the movies.
You don’t have to buy a ticket to fly to Los Angeles, New York, Cannes, Berlin, Shanghai, or anywhere else, to find financiers for your film. In one fell swoop, you bypass the query letters, the pitch meetings, the agents and managers, the table-reads, and the independent producers who then need to solicit funding.
If you have an agent, the competition gives you the opportunity to move your own career and put your work in front of the people your agent may not ever be able to get in front of.
Financiers need great product. This is how you get it to them.
