Update - Sort of

Hey Everyone,
This year, in addition to our Withoutabox presence, we also had our own entry system.  It has created an extra hundred hours of extra work for us but in the long run the money saved makes running the contest viable.  Without those savings, we would probably not even be able to have a contest next year.

The downside is that we are a bit behind in the reading.  I think we should be able to announce quarterfinalists this month and give the class winners four to six weeks to prepare for an LA trip.  I don't have an exact time-frame.  I am a one-man band here and am working on several projects simultaneously -- scene writing book and DVD set -- which will impact the screenwriting community in a positive way.

Make sure you are signed up for contest updates via Constant Contact.  (Sign up for the newsletter and then adjust which lists you want to be on.)  And follow us on Facebook.  I give some real-time updates there which also go out on Twitter.

There should be a few extra seats in the Champion Lab available for sale, so start thinking about January.  ;-)

Thanks for your patience.

Peace,
Jim
