Why do we ONLY accept electronic entries?
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. 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.

What is “early”? What is the deadline to qualify for an “early submission” and “early analysis”?
Any screenplay submitted before the Regular Deadline of October 15th may be resubmitted by our Final Deadline of November 15th.
Regarding resubmissions for the screenplay contest: How many times can you submit the same screenplay for analysis before the final deadline of Nov 15th?
Also, is it $40 per resubmission and one analysis (perhaps by the same reader – upon request)?
You can resubmit your screenplay as many times as you wish prior to our Final Deadline of November 15th. Each resubmission requires a $40 fee and will receive one analysis.
