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?

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.

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?
