Please note that the AWG National Office will be closed from Friday 20 December to Tuesday 2nd January. We advise you to not post any scripts for assessment during this time, as receipt cannot be guaranteed.
In 2009 the Australian Writers’ Guild proudly announced the launch of our new Script Assessment service, available to both AWG members and non members.
After extensive research and consultation with development professionals working in film, television and theatre, we have created a best practice script assessment service designed to give you constructive and balanced evaluation of your draft scripts.
Australia’s only not-for-profit service, our new structure provides you with a number of choices to suit your experience level and the stage of your script’s development. This includes two tiers of assessment and a range of reporting and consultation options.
Our assessment team has increased to include over 40 of Australia’s leading assessors, ensuring a high quality of assessment and fast turnaround .
Tier One: Written Report
We strongly encourage first-time and emerging writers to consider Tier One first . It’s also a level that is appropriate if you’ve embarked on a new script, and need a litmus test before you continue – or if you have a treatment you’d like assessed.
Tier Two: Written Report
The Tier Two report is recommended for more established writers, and those who’ve been assessed before. The full (5-6 page) written report meets the delivery requirements of film funding agencies, and is also useful in a broader industry development context.
The AWG assessor provides a maximum of 6 pages of written feedback.
Tier Two: Face-to-Face
Writers provide a 1 line and a 1 paragraph project synopsis, a full draft script of the project they are developing and single A4 page with notes for further work (if so desired).
AWG members: $495
Tiers 1 & 2: Follow-up Consultations
Face-to-face consultation: AWG members $165 inc. GST Non AWG members $220 inc. GST
