I've been reading the threads this year and realized that at least a half-dozen people received the same genre as in prior years, one even getting it three years in a row. Even more odd is that each person says the assigned genre isn't really up their alley...

In a contest where there are nearly a dozen genres to go around, aren't these multiple anomalies a little strange? Maybe I'm just paranoid, so I wanted to know others thoughts about it, especially if you're one of those in that situation...

Congrats and good luck to all who finished and submitted this year!

   I'm sure it's a coincidence. But then again they did away with Mockumentary...which is what I had first round last year.

I'd say coincidence. At least, I think so. I'm probably the guy you mentioned as getting the same genre three years in a row - this is the third time I've received "Fantasy."

If anything else, though, it's made me better at fantasy stories. So much so I'm actually giving a fantasy feature script a shot. :)
