We are proud to be able to announce MYSTERY HERO GUY by Rico Lara–Marin as the winner of our Featured Script of the Month for September 18th to October 31st – the time of our late surge of Summer contest entries. The dates for the November Featured Script of the Month will be back to normal, though, spanning the whole month of November.
This bonus prize has been created to reward and develop the most interesting script we receive in the previous month) and the result has no bearing on the result of other entries to any of our competitions. It was an interesting challenge to pick the most interesting script from such a wide variety of scripts written to a high-quality, but Rico thoroughly deserves this. For winning the Featured Script of the Month, Rico receives free Judging Feedback worth $99 plus a free resubmission for a redrafted version of his script, MYSTERY HERO GUY, to our latest main Competition! On top of that, we give Rico and his script the kind of publicity that our previous Monthly Contest winners have received.
