Just noting that this has an entry fee of $75 - $95 per submission.

I know absolutely zero about the screenplay world or the people in it. I did find this discussion. And I found that the first 'success story' they list, Amy Wang, seems to be repped by Kaplan/Perrone Entertainment, not UTA. And Ana Lily Amirpour's Wiki page mentions nothing about ever entering or having anything to do with Blue Cat.

With an entry fee that steep, the contest must be a nice revenue stream for Blue Cat.

I'm troubled by the fact that, other than its co-founder, the site lists no staff, no judges for the contest and no clue as to the qualifications and industry experience of those who will be producing the written analyses of the contest entries.

The owner is the sole judge. And yes, the scripts are assigned to readers -- identity/qualifications unknown -- for screening, and those readers provide the written analysis.
