This sounds like a version of the OWC but with cash prizes instead of the crappy mug.

Isn't this the one that quite a lot of folk do around here? Certintly at Movie poet there were a handful who did this midnight thing. If I recall, and this may be a Different one, you go through into different rounds depending on your script, so it's not a one off.

If it's a different competition then I'm talking out my bottom !!

No, I'm pretty sure this is the same one, Bill. In fact, if I'm remembering my history correctly, the site was comprised (main, in the beginning) by people who participated in it. But, I could also be way off, too.

Many years ago a LOT of us here entered the short script comp from them. It was absolutely horrible to see which scripts advanced. The judges cared nothing about format, writing or story at all. In fact it was so bad and people were so mad that Chris went and started Movie Poet and that's how a lot of us became friends. They could of course have gotten better judges and be a more professional comp now, but I personally never entered their crappy comp again and never will.

I did not realise the entry price was so high or the history of this competition, I think I'll give it a miss!

One day the mug will be mine. Probably not any day soon. But you never know. Alright, so you do. But I can dream. Last night I had one about this huge big... Oh. Might stop there. I've said too much.

Fifty of your American dollars is way too much. Maybe five or ten to cover costs but more than that is a scam. These things should be sponsored, you shouldn't have to pay a whack to enter.

Aren't these things supposed to promote penniless writers who are eating noodles and have been washing their hair with dishwashing liquid until the next pay?

Reading the rest of the posts in this thread makes clear what a real waste the fifty would become.

Now, I'm going to have a nap. See if I can get back where I was. After that I may buy some shampoo.
