Event Details

The Book Pipeline: Adaptation competition seeks published books, graphic novels, short stories, and plays for film and television adaptation. There are no genre restrictions, and judging criteria is weighed evenly between concept originality, marketability in the current landscape, and overall writing talent.

Since 2014, Book Pipeline has reviewed 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.

Submitted books, graphic novels, and short stories must already be published in some form (traditional publishing or self-publishing). Stage plays must have been published and/or produced. Unpublished material can be submitted to Book Pipeline: Unpublished.

Entries are judged on the basis of concept originality, writing ability, and the property’s viability as a scripted film or television series. Judging is done internally by Pipeline Development Executives.
