  • Which Page categories have the best odds?

    The PAGE contest offers prizes in a number of categories (see below).

    Anyone have any thoughts (or, better yet, inside info) on which have the best odds (e.g., the fewest entries or least likely to be done well)? So if a script is both a drama and historical, or both action and family, what's the better choice?

    All types of action scripts, war stories, westerns, and adventure tales
    (Raiders of the Lost Ark, Saving Private Ryan, Kill Bill, Lethal Weapon, Speed)

    (Ghostbusters, Pretty Woman, American Pie, Young Frankenstein, Little Miss Sunshine)
