Objective

Thanks to everyone who's entered so far, for what's proving to be a very interesting contest. We changed our price/prize weightings this competition to encourage earlier submissions and spread our judging workloads out more evenly - which was even more successful than we intended! As we were still expecting a big influx of later submissions, and maybe some of you were counting on us adding an extra week for submissions as we've done before, we've now got spare judging capacity for the coming weeks, and we'd like to use it to make a bonus offer to you. If you've submitted to the competition already, you can now submit further scripts easily for just $20 each! We will send an exclusive access method to everyone who's already submitted to us, for them to take up this great offer.

Meanwhile, if you've not entered yet, we're keeping the contest open for another 2 weeks: and once you've submitted once, you can submit us a further script for a combined cost of $79 for 2, $99 for 3, £119 for 4 and so on! That's a great deal and keeps getting better the more scripts you submit! Get your script to us now…
