This sounds like a great opportunity! 
With your contest, is it like this one, where you submit a new piece for each round, or does  the same piece go through round to round, with some minor tweaks dependant on feedback?

Hiya,

Sorry for the delay. The same script is evaluated in each of the rounds but you can submit a new draft if you choose to. All the best, stay safe.

Are you allowed to submit something in the Fantasy genre? I noticed it wasn't in the 7 listed genres, but couldn't it count as action/adventure? Or do the judges want you to actively avoid fantasy-ish stuff?
