Anyone else on here with me? The list is huge, so if you've made it, post here so we can extend congratulations.

I wish they would post the title though, I entered more than one. Congrats to all.

In addition to James and Irin, I recognized Mike Donald, Stephen Hoover, and Michael Scott. Congrats to all of you and the other MB'ers who I missed. May you all make it to the finals! (And then some type of no-holds-barred cage-match to determine the winner...)

Author: Irin Evers Posted: 04/01/10 01:55 PM

Definitely steel cage!

I'm in too. Embarrassingly, I forgot which script I submitted and had to check my WAB history -- a touch of Alzheimer there.

Author: Stephen Hoover Posted: 04/01/10 06:20 PM

I entered two scripts -- HORROR COMIC and WEDDING KNIGHT. Not sure which one advanced but nice to be the hunt with something.

Know there has been some bashing of this contest but they generate a lot of publicity for the winners. Nobody's going to hand you a career and lot people are making the mistake of thinking a contest win = instant career.

Well, that and most writers are bomb-throwing whining baby entitled self-important drama kings and queens. At least I am.

Anyone know when the next cut is?

Author: Irin Evers Posted: 04/06/10 12:17 PM

I've called - no one picks up - and emailed to find out which of my scripts advanced. I find this very frustrating. If they're not going to post it, then they should email that info.

Author: Michael Scott Posted: 04/06/10 06:13 PM

To Susan Russell: This is news to me. I haven't been e-maild from Page. Do tell, how do I find this info. Thanks, Mike Scott

Author: Moncia Surrena Posted: 05/08/10 08:48 AM

Heh. I'm on there too. It was nice of them to let me know:)

Author: Moncia Surrena Posted: 05/08/10 08:52 AM

Then again, I suppose they have a lot to sift through...

Author: Irin Evers Posted: 05/08/10 11:21 AM

I completely forgot about this. They never responded to my message or my email - just trying to find out which one of my scripts advanced. That's really lame. They should post that info or email us or at least respond to the question. It's not too much to ask which script advanced.

Author: Michael Scott Posted: 05/08/10 04:40 PM

Is this quarter finalists or semis?

Author: Irin Evers Posted: 05/08/10 08:33 PM

Quarterfinals. There's a list on the website (after you page through the Fade In Awards thing), you click on and get a list of writers (not which scripts).

Author: Janet Hogate Posted: 05/08/10 10:29 PM

Congrats James, Irin, Mike D, Michael S, Stephen and Nathan. I like this contest, I just forgot to enter this year. Goodluck.

Author: James Schannep Posted: 05/24/10 11:05 AM

Has anyone heard anything? Next week will be two months since the last notification. No answer every time I call.

Author: Irin Evers Posted: 05/24/10 05:01 PM

I'm finding this really frustrating. I entered 3 scripts and have both left messages at the office and emailed 3 times now just to find out which of my scripts advanced. And I haven't gotten a response yet. All I want to know is which scripts advance - not too much to ask. It's really making me think very little of this contest.
