This is direct from the Q&A section:
 
Also, Peer Review...We have a very active forum during the screenwriting competition and we will set up a peer review forum where you can submit your script for review from the fellow writers.

Michael,

Good to hear that the Happy Dance is spreading.

As for sharing scripts many people did last year once the deadline passed.

As I recall some, myself included, started new threads with links to scripts. We stated the title and logline as well as a teaser.

Back to the Office Happy Dance. High cubicle walls, you know.

John

After the submission deadline has passed, they are going to open up a forum where you can post your script and receive feedback from the other participants.

Happy dance here, too, pro...although I do have this limp from sitting so long at my laptop. 

Funny thing happened:  When I went to submit, I double checked my last name  and heat number.  And next to my name was Heat 7.  "No!" I screamed. "I was in Heat 4!  I've written a whole script..." I nearly fainted dead away.  And then I noticed the same last name under it.  I don't see my last name that often, as it's not that common.  Relief does not begin to describe the feeling...
 
Great experience, though.  Brevity has taken on new meaning.  Save a word, or even a letter...save a line!  They are precious things in a 20-page script.  I don't know how many times in the last 24 hours I added a line on page 4, and the page count jumped to 21.  Had to go through and see what wasn't really "essential."
 
I wonder if Title/log lines will be provided for at least the heat winners.  I would think so, but I'm not sure.  That way we could at least see quick summaries of the subjects.  I'd be willing to share my script with any of the other participants.  I wonder if that could work out.

Hee!  That's fantastic.

It is DONE.

I just e-mailed my script. I was glad that I re-read the requirements. I almost didn't title it correctly for submission. Heat number_Title

That could have been a problem.

But I'm done. Whew...HAPPY DANCE!!!!!

Well, 16 pages in and I've decided to junk what I have so far.  Crazy?  Maybe.  But I want to win.
 
I decided that my original idea was too boring.  It was just too conventional, and certainly not a movie I would watch.  My new idea is a lot better.  I just hope I have enough time to do it justice in 20 pages.

Note to self: drink scotch after you write.
Okay, I went back and read them this morning. They aren't as bad as I thought. I scrapped about one quarter of it and am now up to 8 pages. Should finish my first draft tonight. Won't be anywhere near 20 pages, which is fine with me (and the readers).

Take a deep breath.  It will be fine.
