Last week, we sent out an email to our 26 finalists in the competition asking for written confirmation that they are, in fact, eligible to win the contest. That means that the writer cannot have earned more than $35,000 from professional screenwriting in the past 18 months. While sending out the emails, we noticed one submitter in particular under the name of Orson Scott Card. Sound familiar? Yep, that Orson Scott Card, the acclaimed novelist and author of the beloved and award-winning novel Ender’s Game.
This presented us with a bit of a predicament.
