the categories you can enter are: (I think)
--features = 5 writers
--pilot for tv series = 5 writers (I'm guessing traditional network show)
--pilot for a limited run tv show = 5 writers (I'm guessing HBO, Hulu, Netflix, etc)
--animation = 5 writers
BUT don't take my word for this, because I can't remember where I read this. Is this breakdown on the application? Was it on a deadline article? I can't remember. And I haven't been able to find it again (yet) by googling. Anyone?
the category formats are:
TV half hour
TV hour long
