Hi! I'm currently in the SS challenge right now, so obviously this isn't a pressing concern. I was just curious:

How do you select your judges for the competitions? 
Are they paid?
How do you apply to be a judge?

Thank you! Smile

We aim to recruit judges that have experience in the field, are passionate about writing, and enjoy helping other writers improve their craft.  We research and invite individuals to apply who we feel will make great judges, in addition to receiving referrals from our existing judges.  We don't make our online application public, though that may change in the future.  We pay judges for every submission they read and the pay varies depending on the length of the piece.  Lastly, if you or someone you know would be interested in judging, please send us an email at feedback@nycmidnight.com, though please keep in mind that we do not allow judges to participate in our competitions for obvious conflicts of interest.  

Please let us know if you have any other questions or need anything else.  Good luck!
Next up is the Screenwriting Challenge 2019 kicking off April 12th.
