With two cycles of our main competition clashing almost directly with the deadline dates of our Monthly Contest, we’ve decided to delay relaunching our Monthly Contest again until at least January 2017. Anyone who has submitted to our Monthly contest since the start of August will be offered a free entry to the main contest (representing a significant discount on its current entry price), which currently closes at the same time as the September competition would have done anyway!
In place of the Monthly Contest, we’d like to introduce our new FEATURED SCRIPT OF THE MONTH. This prize – for which all submissions to our contests are automatically entered for free – is awarded to the most interesting script we process during that month. The winner receives free Judging Feedback worth $99 plus a free resubmission for their redrafted script to whichever contest it has entered! On top of that, we will give the writer and script the kind of publicity that our previous Monthly Contest winners have received. Not a bad bonus to be offering all of our entrants for free! Right?
Congratulations once again to everyone who has won, or otherwise benefited, from the Monthly contest so far: we’ve been delighted with the standard of the best entries. We hope you’ll agree that the enhanced competition cycles and writer development of the FEATURED SCRIPT OF THE MONTH will be a great – and free – substitute for the opportunity you’ve benefited from so far.
We look forward to announcing our first winning FEATURED SCRIPT OF THE MONTH for August and September submissions early in October. Watch this space!
