Whew, this was hard.  So many great little gems.  All of the scene writers get a cool little prize package and are semifinalists. There are technically only four semifinalists in the pitch category but I wanted to honor a top ten list because there were so many captivating stories here.  I will see what I can do to find something to offer all ten before I narrow it down to the four winners.

I am aiming to pick all the winners by the end of the month but give me a day or two of leeway.  I will post an update here, on our Facebook page and in the Email that goes out this week announcing these results.

Thanks again to all who entered and congratulations to those who advanced.  I am honored to have been able to immerse myself in your work.  I will send you some offers that might make it pretty easy to come out to the Champion Lab.
