So this may be a bit of a pointless post, given everyone who normally comments here is probably at the London Screenwriters’ Festival and far too drunk to read; but I’m curious – how many people entered Shine‘s Big Idea competition?
I entered around tea-time (dinner time if you’re born in the South of England) on the 28th and my last entry number was 85448- this has got me (and a few others) wondering … does that mean there are around 85,000 entries?
Or is the 8 added to everyone’s entry?
That still leaves 5,000 plus – which seems a lot.
I guess what I’m looking for is someone who entered very early and someone who entered right up against the deadline. If you exist and you’re reading this (and you can be arsed) then maybe you can post your numbers in the comments and we can figure out roughly how tough the competition is?
Assuming, that is, they haven’t already posted the number on their website by the time this post hits the blog. In which case, just post some abuse.
