I'll be using the free version of Celtx to do my script this weekend (had a quick play on it and it seems okay for me to use at least for the first challenge).

I just wonder about saving it, and whether NYC specify the submitted scripts should be a particular file type. Obviously with flash they only accept word docs and a few others. 

I'm new to the script comp so have no idea what they expect you to send, does anyone know?

I use Celtx and you can print as PDF. They do include an unchangeable footer in the free version but you can remove it in a PDF editing program (or submit as is).
