Note: My scores were probably not high enough to make the finals, but I still feel like I got a fair shake and I agree with the reviews for the most part:
Dear BlueCat entrant,
Here are your analyses on your submission to the BlueCat Fellini Awards. I very much appreciate your entry to this special competition, and I hope you will find your experience enjoyable and helpful.
Below you will find two analyses and sets of scores. This is the first time we’ve provided two feedbacks, and we look forward to seeing how this goes. The scores are based on a 1-10 scale, with 10 being the highest. Be sure to check the math on the total provided by your reader. Thank you.
Both analyses will be taken into account moving forward, but what should be made clear is you will only need the score on one of the analyses to advance you in the competition (in other words, you have two chances). I have not yet determined what the score total will be the cutoff point, but essentially every BlueCat entrant receives two chances to advance. I will let everyone know what the score cutoff total will be when I make that determination.
Please let us know if you have any comments or concerns on the analyses you received. We are not a consultation service. We are a screenplay competition and what we are providing are the notes we generated in service of judging that competition.
If you’d like to resubmit your screenplay, you may do so for $40. You will receive one analysis, given by a reader you’ve had or a new one. All scores received will be taken into account equally. Deadline for resubmission is April 1.

Thank you again for supporting BlueCat. It’s been of great benefit to me to do this work, and I sincerely hope you will all find something you can take from this experience to move your writing forward. I have.
