Cyberspace Open has been pushed six weeks

Creative Screenwriting Magazine's Cyberspace Open, which was supposed to happen tonight, has been pushed six weeks, so if you didn't make it you've got an extension:
2010-11 Cyberspace Open Entry Deadline Extended Six Weeks; Refunds Available If You Cannot Participate on the New Schedule

We are very excited about the new 2010-2011 Cyberspace open. However, a combination of circumstances beyond our control has made it necessary to extend the entry deadline and contest start date.

The new contest entry deadline is Midnight February 13, 2011, and the premise will be posted February 18.  These are firm dates and there will be no more extensions.  We deeply regret any inconvenience that this may cause you.

If you conclude that you cannot or do not want to participate in the contest due to this new deadline, you may have a full refund, with our apologies and our appreciation for your interest.  To obtain a refund, please call or email our customer service staff at (888) 556-6274 or (323) 957-1405 or

Everything else about this great contest remains intact: There are seven cash prizes: $2,500, $500 and $250 for first, second, and third, and four genre prizes of $150 each.

In addition, we will give winners great industry exposure: We will send 300+ producers the names and describe the achievements of the winners.  The written scenes and videos of the three winning scenes will be posted on the Web.

Again, you can see last year's scenes and winners here.  Also, we send feedback by email to entrants who provide email addresses on their title pages.

We pray for your patience and understanding, but again, if you cannot participate with the new dates, please request a refund.
I'm kind of bummed because I was really looking forward to this, but it sounds like it couldn't be helped.  Plus, I do have errands to run this weekend, so I guess it worked out.
