You have no idea how much work went into this. Jim O’Hara and his crack team of mods have been amazing these last few months. Simply amazing, shepherding everyone, reading screenplays, keeping everybody up to speed with our 12 week search and subsequent reads.
We had around 1500 entries if I recall and I’m so blown away by the quality. The last week I’ve done nothing except read them and mull things over, trying to pick the final winners. The standard was so much higher than I expected and the budding creators truly international. Less than a third came from the US or UK and this was incredible. Totally unexpected.
Results later. I’m making a video. But six new writers and six new artists are about to make their debut.
Pause for breath. Back later with the 12 names.
