Submissions of new drafts or corrected pages will not be accepted. 

Screenplays must be submitted in English.  

A writer may enter more than one screenplay; however, a separate entry form and fee are required for each script submitted.


What if I send my script and over 100 scripts have already been entered?

The person who reads your script and provides the written feedback will be instructed to make certain that your script goes directly into the competition after they are done with it.
