And there they are, the absolute best of all the entries in this year’s competition!
Zeroing in on the Winners was more difficult than it ever has been before, with the Half-Hour Category 1st Place Winner and 2nd Runner-Up separated by only 1/4 of 1 point; the One Hour Category 1st Place Winner and 2nd Runner-Up separated by 1/10 of 1 point; and the Over One Hour Category 1st Place Winner and Runner-Up separated by 1/3 of 1 point. (Note: There was only 1 Runner-Up in this category because the remaining scripts unfortunately couldn’t compare.)
As soon as LB recovers from the pummeling he received from some of the other judges as they determined the final finishing order he will post his reaction to and interpretation of this year’s PP entries and results and then start sending out his Feedback re all the entries so all the writers involved will understand the major strengths and weaknesses in the work they’ve done.
Barring the Spanish Inquisition or something else unforeseeable (yes, we’re talking to you, Monty Python hipsters), the official Winners notifications will be sent out by the end of this week and Feedback will start appearing entrants’ email boxes next week.
As always, LB ‘s Feedback is personal, coming directly from his keyboard, so entrants should be prepared to wait as long as a full month for theirs to arrive. Please, no angry, “Where’s my Feedback, dammit?!” messages until after March 1st, okay?
Congratulations to the Winners, Runners-Up, and everybody who entered. We Really Love You Mean It for all the work you’ve put in and hope you will all congratulate and love yourselves for it as well. You have demonstrated one hell of a large amount of talent and should be very, very proud!
