Can I Use My Own File Name Format?
I would like to include the date and my name in the file name of the PDF…
Please follow the competition rules for your file name…the PDF file name must be your submission title only, each word separated by an underscore. An example would be:
Nothing else can be in the file name for your submission to be eligible, and your name should not be on the the submission anywhere. Of course you probably already have your work officially copyrighted and its always a good idea to register it with the WGA. Big Story Group will receive your submission with the creator/owner data you provide in your submission form, so there is no question about who the submission belongs to…you will retain all rights to your competition submission. If a screenplay submission is optioned or purchased between the time of submission and the conclusion of the judging period, that screenplay will no longer be eligible for the completion of the competition and its awards.
