The Year 2022 was phenomenal as Northern Script got more scripts from the Nordic countries than ever before in our history. Over 60 scripts were sent to the Northern Script Jury in different Nordic countries (Finland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Iceland, Faroe Islands) by the talented Nordic storytellers. This year’s theme was ‘Temptation’ and the theme was shown in the scripts literally, symbolically and some from an emotional perspective.
Congratulations to all the Northern Script finalists and to all of you who took the initiative and wrote us a script this year. You are all very much valued!! Each participant will receive feedback on your script during this autumn.

Each Nordic finalist is also invited to join our one-week-long Northern Script camp in Northern Finland, Oulu, located only 170km from the Arctic Circle (14th – 20th of November 2022).
The scriptwriting camp is totally FREE for the participants.
