This fee includes entry in one Genre Category and evaluation by one Judge in the First Round of the contest.
ADDING CATEGORIES & JUDGES
If you would like to have your script read and evaluated by more than one Judge in the First Round of competition, you may have up to two additional Judges review your script for an additional $15 each.
If your screenplay crosses genres (for example, if it’s both a Comedy and a Family Film), you may ask the Judges to consider your script in more than one category. Or if your script belongs in only one genre, you may ask all the Judges to consider your script in the same category.
You may also request Judge’s Feedback from your First Round Judge(s). If you order Feedback, your Judge will take the extra time to write you several pages of thoughts and ideas about your script, along with an explanation of how your script scored and why. The fee for Judge’s Feedback is $89.
Our First Round Judges write Feedback for you on the day they read your screenplay, while it’s fresh in their minds; therefore, if you want Feedback on your script, please understand that you must request it when you enter the contest. It cannot be added at a later time.
Would you like to enter several scripts in this year’s contest? If you submit more than one script on the same entry form, you will receive a $5 discount off each additional submission.
Scripts submitted on separate entry forms will each be charged the full entry fee applicable on that submission date.
As most of our Judges now prefer to read scripts online, we ask you to upload your script through our online entry form, preferably as an Adobe Acrobat .pdf file. You can download Adobe Acrobat free of charge at adobe.com. If for some reason you cannot convert your script to a .pdf file, we can also accept Final Draft, Microsoft Word, or Text files. (Please make sure the file you send us is not password protected or secured.)
Your contest entry fee may be paid:
ONLINE: With a credit card, debit card, bank transfer, or PayPal account
OR BY MAIL: With a check or money order (must be in U.S. funds)
