Champion Development Services
Champion Development Notes NEW this year!
This service grew out of last years’ entrants’ desire to get more
feedback from our awesome Champion Readers. This service provides
four-five pages of detailed feedback and gives the entrant the status of
their script in the contest. If Champion Development Notes are ordered
within 24 hours of a script’s submission, the script is also eligible for
resubmission in the competition. The service can only be ordered through
the Champion site, so if a writer forgot to select Champion Development
Notes or entered through Withoutabox, they simply order the service via the
This is a short 1-2 page coverage-like analysis of an entrant’s feature
screenplay. In addition to the feedback, writers get the advantage of
knowing whether their script advanced as well as the option to resubmit a
rewrite. There are no extra steps. Writers who want to use this service
simply chose the “Feature Script with Contest Coverage” on our order form
or enter the Feature category with Contest Coverage via Withoutabox.
Price: Additional $60.
