              I know this is probably a very stupid question, but what is it about Amazon that everyone seems to love? I have no idea how this "contest" works. And certainly I apologize for my ignorance, but can someone please give me a heads up? Do you upload your work, and others run with it?


              By the way, the above said, I offer my hearty congratulations to both Gary and Lauri.

                  one simple answer -- the prize money

                  One $1,000,000 prize

                  Twelve $100,000 prizes

                  Twenty-six $20,000 prizes

                  Twelve $5K prizes

                  Plus there's a few $10K, and a lot of $1K prizes as well

                  no other contest is throwing money at emerging wannabe screenwriters and filmmakers to develop their projects.

                    "emerging" screenwriters? LOL I usually hate that description. It usally means someone is trying to get money out of you by flattering you. LOL


                    Well, it sounds interesting. The money that is. What about the development part? You upload your script (or film) and a community develops it? Is that what happens?

                    .

                          .
                          AS doesn't charge people to enter.

                          You can post a script as either open for others to develop or closed. AS has (with the permission of the original writers) held two revision contests so far, and I won one of them.
