What is Pathways? 

The AWG Pathways Program was developed to provide a channel for great projects from our AWG members to reach industry professionals looking for high-quality new scripts.

Since its inception in 2010, Pathways has enabled industry professionals to access synopses of these selected scripts on the AWG website and then seek contact with the writer of a script that has piqued their interest.

Pathways has been highly successful in forging of relationships between members who want to see their scripts produced, and industry professionals who want to access great projects and screenwriters, and has now evolved into two streams, Pathways Showcase and Pathways Prime.

Pathways Showcase

Pathways Showcase is a collection of peer-reviewed projects identified through various competitions, awards and initiatives as being of a particularly high standard. All projects on Pathways Showcase have been through a judging panel selection process.

These projects and their writers will be showcased on the new Pathways portal on the AWG website and will continue to enjoy the benefits of the Pathways Program.

Pathways Prime

Pathways Prime is a by-invitation-only extension of the Pathways Program. Using specific criteria, the Pathways panel selects the most highly respected, credited and awarded writers and invites them to be part of the Pathways Prime cohort.

Unlike Pathways Showcase writers, whose projects must be assessed by a judging panel, Pathways Prime writers bring their projects without peer assessment.
