Sorry newbie here and I'm sure this is in the instructions somewhere, but what happens next? when do we get feedback and who goes through to the next round? does someone from each group go through? Thank you x

There are details in the FAQ. Right now we wait. 

In a few days we'll get an official confirmation email (different from the automated submission confirmation). At that point in time, we'll have the option of posting our stories to the forums for others to read, or to exchange critique and feedback.

The official confirmation should have the date for when results of the first round will be posted. It will be close to the start of the next round, so early-mid January. I believe judge feedback comes shortly after in another email.

Top 10 in each group, so 1,200 people total.
Those 1,200 will be divided into new groups, though I am not sure how big those groups are.
Top 5 from those groups will go on to the final round. Last round is all one group.
Top 10 are awarded prizes ranging from $6,000 to $100. I believe there are honourable mentions as well.

There are 5,400 people entered and distributed across 120 groups. Each group has 45 people.
