ANSWERS TO YOUR QUESTIONS
Have a question not answered here? Use the CONTACT form to reach the competition organizer.
How will scripts be judged?
All scripts, regardless of genre, will be judged on the following categories:
I already submitted my script, but I have a new version. Can I update my submission?
How should I format my title page?
Include your script title and credited writer(s). Contact info isn’t necessary, but feel free to include it. Many competitions will require you to remove your name from the title page, to make the judging more anonymous, and this is something Crooked Stick will consider for the future. We can assure you the judges will judge a script solely on the rubric above, not the name on the title page.
When is the deadline?
The final deadline is September 15th, 2020, and the submissions portal will close at 12:01 AM PST.
When will I get my feedback/notes?
Once winners are announced, please give the judging team about 3 weeks to email out the feedback.
Can you explain the academic eligibility requirements again? Real slow-like?
Can I enter my thesis script?
What about produced material?
Is this competition affiliated with Liberty University or the Cinematic Arts program?
No. This competition was conceived and is run by alumni. Liberty University does not sponsor us nor are they affiliated with us in any way. There is zero influence from the Cinematic Arts department on the judging or how the competition is run.
