    I was a reader for this competition a few years back. I have to say, it was a great experience. If I remember correctly I read 15-20 scripts over a two month period and provided a one page (min.) critique/notes back to the writer. I'd do it again if I had the time. Definitely one screenplay competition that is on the up and up!
