Thank you for your interest in registering your work with the Writers Guild of South Africa Script Registry.

Before You Register

Scripts
  • Only one (1) script registration can be completed at a time. You will need to fill in a separate form for each script you wish to register.
  • Only PDF files may be uploaded. There is a standard way you need to name your PDF file: the title of your script and the version number (e.g. Killer Tom Cat Vs1).
  • When updating your script, and this must also be done online, please use the SAME file name with an updated VERSION NUMBER (e.g. Killer Tom Cat Vs2)
  • A further four updates can be purchased. See Fees & Incentives.
Individuals
  • Have a copy of your ID/Passport scanned to your computer
  • Have your script(s) ready for upload (i.e. in PDF and named correctly)
Company
  • Have a copy of your Company Registration Certificate and
  • Have the ID/Passport of one of the named members on the company registration certificate scanned on your computer.
