Submission deadline extension!

As you know, we collect your scripts via an online process on our website at (choose the hotlink for Guidelines & Submissions). There are two collectors set up on the site and this afternoon we discovered that unfortunately one of those collectors was programmed to close a day earlier than it should. Our apologies to anyone who could not submit their script due to this error.

The good news is that we are extending the submission deadline by one day only! This means that you now have until Saturday, December 19 at 11:59 pm to send in your script.
