The decision of the judging panel is final. All judges and sponsors are immune from any competition disputes.

If they see fit, Shore Scripts can extend the final deadline of the competition.

Entrants understand that the concept and characters in your script may contain similar elements to projects being developed by any individual or company working with Shore Scripts; and that you will not attempt to claim against Shore Scripts, or their associates and judges, at any time.
