Default Tracking Board Launch Pad Screenwriting Contest

I know there was a bit of controversy surrounding this contest when it was first announced last year... but I was wondering if anyone here went ahead entered.

I did, under the (admittedly delusional) idea that maybe because it was a new contest that I would have a better shot -- you know, less entries to compete against. Yeah, ha ha ha.

I believe that the semifinalists are going to be announced this month -- any word when?

I gave it a go with a script that got a 7 on the BL. No word yet. Seems a fair amount of this game is all odds - even with a good script - so might as well try to get some exposure.

Ha! I entered by Black List 7 script, too! Hopefully all those 8s and 9s will have been too busy basking in their BL downloads to consider entering

Here's to the BLACK LIST 7s!

I entered a few scripts, but haven't received any emails. Would these emails be sent just to the semi-finalists or everyone who has entered?

Only the Top 25 got e-mails, but I guess it's possible that there's a staggered delay to them, so don't fret yet.

The great part about this is that, like the TrackingB contest, seasoned pros are allowed to enter -- but, since it's the first year, who knows how many pros (if any) entered, and who knows how many people entered in general. Aka -- quite possibly not that impressive

Also, reading the earlier posts, I should have mentioned -- I'm another Blacklist 7 with this one -- so, koo beanz, I suppose? Good luck to all

When writers are shelling out up to $95 to enter your competition is it really too much to ask to send out an email notification of the results? It's literally the press of a button on any half decent mail merge program.
