Revisions and resubmission are the main reason we created this competition. We want you to have the opportunity to use our script consultants’ expert feedback to help you rework your script and resubmit it (at no additional cost!) so it has the best chance to win The Finish Line Script Competition.
You can get a comprehensive set of consultation notes (from the same script consultant throughout the process, just as though you were getting notes from a producer) as many times as you like until the submission period ends. Every time you ask for new notes it will take your script consultant 7-10 days to deliver them to you. These notes, from highly qualified industry professionals, cost$100 for the initial set, which include entry into the competition and $90 foreach subsequent set of detailed, constructive feedback notes.
When you have rewritten your script and want to resubmit, you have two options. The first is to go through FilmFreeway to purchase another set of notes to keep working on new drafts and get a feeling of where your consultant thinks your scripts stands. The second option is to simply email us your new draft at firstname.lastname@example.org labeled as a new draft and this will be the draft we judge off of. This draft can be switched out at no additional cost until the final resubmissions deadline. After quarter-finalists are announced, those still in the competition can continue to receive as many consultations as they like until that phase of the competition ends. The same process occurs with the semi-finalist period. Judges evaluate the final scripts, and they choose the Grand Prize Winner, First Runner Up and Second Runner Up.
