I've participated in the flash fiction and short screenplay challenges this year and noticed that although the results are posted for the first round complete with titles and synopses, for the second round only the winning names and scores are published, not the corresponding winning titles. Is there a reason for this? I always try to go through the master lists after the first round results are posted so I can read as many winners as possible, but they make it impossible in the second round, and I don't understand why...
If there is something I'm missing I'd appreciate any enlightenment on the subject!

Are you saying they've already published the titles of the stories that are through to Round 2? I thought that was not to be announced until Wednesday?

Hey @LondonZach: challenge #3 is currently underway. They already sent the results for the challenge #2 stories this past Wednesday. Linking it here: http://www.nycmidnight.com/Competitions/ShSC/1stRound2020_Ch2Results.htm

And @mirlynne, I think that's just the quirk of how this contest is structured. In previous contests I've entered, only the challenge #1 stories had full results posted with titles & synopses, with the second challenge just showing point totals and "who moves on." I guess it'd be more work for NYCM to do that. However, you can still cross-check the forums and see if any of the higher-scoring challenge #2 stories were shared. You might need to peek at the challenge #1 link first, see the names of the people who scored, and then connect those titles/usernames to the challenge #2 stories that were shared. Speaking for myself, that's what I did! Hope this helps.

-EJ

Hey Zach, are you thinking of the microfiction contest? That one will be Wednesday.
