Supporting the creative community has always been a top priority at BET which is why we launched Project CRE8, our first ever nationwide screenplay contest.


Read below for a brief description of Project CRE8. Please see the rules page for more information.

Submit Your Script

Submissions are now closed.

Round One

We have read all submissions, and reached out to the Top 50.

Round Two

The Top 50 scripts will be narrowed down to the Top 10 by a team of BET and Paramount Players executives. The Top 10 will be given $2,500 and one month to create a 2-3 minute scene from his or her screenplay.

Round Three

The scenes created by the Top 10 will be posted on for public voting. The scene receiving the greatest number of votes from the public will automatically advance to the next round. Judges from BET, Paramount Players, and other judges will determine four (4) additional contestants for the Final Round, to complete the Top Five (5).

Final Round

The Top 5 finalists pitch their films to multiple panels of successful filmmakers, writers and executives.

Winner Announced

In Summer 2018 a winner will be announced!
