    Hey Philip — those are the costs to submit to the competition.

    My partner and I are also screenwriters (I write films, she writes TV), so we mirrored this process similarly to a long-standing practice in the entertainment industry. They have so many competitions running throughout the year, all with different incentives, but the structure comes from that world. We hope to get writers submitting earlier rather than later (hence the cheaper cost), so our team’s work of reading scripts and analyzing work can start earlier and it isn’t all jammed into late December (when we expect most people will eventually submit closer to the final deadline). Hope that explains things — let me know if you have any other questions!
