In the early years of the BlueCat Screenplay Competition, every entry was a "hard copy" screenplay, printed on paper and mailed to us via postal services.
At first, it was exciting to see the piles and piles of screenplays. But every year, when it came time to recycle all those scripts, the thought in our minds grew louder: "Wow, this is a lot of paper!"
Shortly after we began to accept screenplays electronically, it became quite clear how much waste was created by BlueCat's acceptance of paper entries.
Everyone knows the importance of respecting our natural resources, and we all love to write and read stories set on Earth and beyond. BlueCat is now asking all writers to join us as we strive to act responsibly as inhabitants of our home, this planet.
In light of this, BlueCat will no longer accept paper submissions.
Some writers believe their screenplay reads better printed on paper. Do you realize our winner last year was submitted electronically? Two of our last three winners were electronic entries. We believe it doesn't affect the judging at all, and we believe screenplays printed on paper use precious resources needlessly.
Join BlueCat in using the wonderful tools we have today to create and discover the stories we will see on the screen tomorrow!
ENTRANTS MAY STILL PAY ENTRY FEE BY POSTAL MAIL, please follow the submission procedure for directions.
