The screenplay must be written in English. Font must be 12-point Courier, Courier New or Courier Final Draft.

If a hardcopy entry is submitted, it must be bound with two or three brads and have card stock covers.
Multiple entries are permissible, but each entry must be accompanied by its own full Entry Form, signed, and an applicable entry fee.

Once a script has been entered, no substitutions of new drafts or corrected pages will be considered. You may submit a revised draft of your script, as a new submission and pay the appropriate entry fee applicable at the time of re-entry -- if so, your prior version will no longer be in competition.

At any time during the contest, you are free to submit your screenplay to any other person, contest, producer, agent, and/or organization.
