    the final draft contest is a mess

    there's really no merit in entering it... last year some guy's 6 screenplays made the top 20. They're a bumbling mess... doesn't mean there aren't contacts 'behind' the contest, just that you can't expect anything but a slippery slope with these people.

    Final Draft


    It might be a simple administration snafu - meaning they may only send out the postcards to everyone after the deadline. Not having cashed your check is more of an issue - but they may process them all at once after the deadline as well. I understand your concern and in the future you may want to use delivery confirmation as your proof you sent it in. It costs about 45 cents at the post office and gives you proof of postmark.

    You may want to try calling Final Draft and seeing if they want you to resend the script before the deadline. This contest prefers people to e-mail their scripts in .FDR or .PDF format - avoiding the whole damn snail mail issue. If you can't or are unwilling to resend your script by computer - use delivery confirmation now.

    Still nothing...

    Okay... Still nothing. It's a week before the deadline. This makes me a little nervous at this point. I don't want the deadline passing and learning that my script (and $50.00 check) got lost in the mail. I've tried to contact them through e-mail, but no response after three days.

    Anyone else out there enter Final Draft Big Break? If so, have you recieved your confirmation postcard? Please let me know.

    The deadline isn't until the 30th, so they probably won't start doing any of that stuff until then.

    Did anyone else enter this one? If so, have you recieved confirmation?

    I sent it off six weeks ago... They still have not returned my confirmation postcard or cashed the check that I sent.

    It's either been lost in the mail or is sitting in some room with thousands of other scripts awaiting readers to be hired. hmm...

    Good luck to all who entered.
