Hi there,

Just building up for another panic-filled few hours, because I'm completely paranoid that my competition entry may not arrive even though I send it in plenty of time. (Yes this IS the same person who annoyed you in the Screenplay Competition in the heats AND in the final with the same obsession!)

Would it not be possible for you to acknowledge receipt when entries arrive, rather than after the deadline, when it would be too late to re-send if there'd been some sort of problem in the ether?

Thanks

Angst-ridden from England

We will do our best to get confirmation e-mails out as soon as possible this year, but there is no guarantee that you will get a confirmation before the deadline.  Most of the submissions usually come 1-2 hours before the deadline, and it's difficult to sort through that many submissions right away.  We have not had problems with our e-mail in the past 4 years of running these events, so you should feel safe that we will get your submission the way you send it.  Hope this helps.  Thanks and good luck!

Gosh, I sent an email asking this same question. I should obviously have just come here instead...

I suppose if on the off chance you don't get a submission there's nothing to be done after the deadline?

Has everyone received the confirmation e-mails yet? I sent my entry in on Saturday afternoon, and haven't heard anything back yet. Just curious.

I'm just wondering, I haven't gotten a confirmation email yet, should I be getting worried yet?

I just got mine. I had added their address to my address book as they suggested, but it still got sent to my Yahoo Spam folder. So if you haven't already, you might want to check there. Good luck, everyone!
