  9. "R" rated level screenplays will be disqualified. "PG-13" rated level screenplays should be leaning more towards a "PG" rating level than an "R" rating level.
  10. Entrants must read the FAQ page on this website (www.Pitch-2-Script.com) as answers to those questions reflects how this contest will be administered as well.

  14. Screenplays compete in a single elimination one on one "round" format . 50% of the entries in each round advance to the next round. If more than two entires advance to Round 7 (depends on the number of entries in the competition), then all entries advancing to Round 7 will be judge against each other.
  15. Only Pitches that advanced to Round 2 will compete for the Best Pitch Winner. Determination of the Best Pitch will not be done in a single elimination round format like the Pitch-2-Script Winner. "50% Of Entries Advance To Next Round," "Beat Only 6 Entries To Become A Finalist," and "Real Time Posting Of Entry's Status" apply to the Pitch-2-Script portion of the competition only and not the Best Pitch portion of the competition.

Even though an original entry was eliminated after the closing date, thus not giving it an opportunity to re-enter, once the contest is closed to entries, no re-entries will be permitted.
