WELCOME TO THE WGSA SCRIPT REGISTRY

To ensure that your work is protected, never pitch or send out your script to a third party before you have protected it by registering it with the WGSA Script Registry.

It is recommended that you insert the registration details in the footer of every page of your script.

No-one will gain access to your script once you have filed it with the WGSA Script Registry. Should a legal issue arise, and you need proof that the work belongs to you, you may request a copy of your work by writing to admin@writersguildsa.org.

Your written request must be accompanied by the registration number of the project as well as a certified copy of your identity document or passport.

PROCESS TO MAKE USE OF THIS SERVICE

WGSA has an in-house script registry.  Cost for members are R100 per script for 3 years which includes all additional drafts, and for non-members the cost is R200.  To make use of the service – send a pdf format of your script to admin@writersguildsa.org.  Non-members must also send a copy of their identity book / card or passport (if you are not a South African Citizen).

Upon receipt an invoice will be issued.  Once payment has been made, the proof of payment must be send to admin@writersguildsa.org.  Thereafter the script will be registered and the registration details will be emailed to you.

FEES

This offers you protection for 3 years, and all subsequent drafts may be registered at no additional cost. After the expiry date, you may extend your registration for a further 3 years by paying the extension fee, or your script will automatically be destroyed.

MEMBERS: R100 per script NON-MEMBERS: R200 per script
