Hmm, that's strange... according to my sent e-mails I sent my entry on June 30th at 8:46am GMT. So not what you'd call early, but not exactly the bleeding edge of the last second either. The address was correct and it definitely sent, no "this e-mail was undeliverable" errors or the like.
Do you think I should e-mail them again to ask if it was received? Not much that could be done at this point if it wasn't, but it would be good to know either way.
I realize that they don’t take unsolicited scripts but out of curiosity how do they get new writers other than the few contests/ opportunities? There must be other ways that are solicited besides those🤔
There was a separate contest to write a Bernice Summerfield short trip last year. (I didn't enter since I wasn't caught up on her stuff in the novels/audios at the time, so I didn't feel I'd have a good handle on her character.) Not sure if that contest was a one-off or if it will become a regular event, but keep an eye out for it just in case
Hi has anyone heard anything yet? I saw that someone had made the shortlist, so I am wondering if they already contacted the winner or if they could still have yet to send out the email to them. Also feeling pretty down and frustrated that they have not even set me a rejection letter 😕does anyone know if there are any other ways to submit pitches to big finish other times of the year but would like to see if there are other opportunities as well as this contest?
You only get asked to pitch if they know who you are and need something that suits you. If you look a number of new writers have also worked professionally in similar areas. I was well known to Ian through reviewing, and be gave me a chance. Other producers haven’t
No news, but if anyone is curious, I never did hear back about the e-mail auto-reply issue. I'd suggest that anyone else who failed to receive an auto-reply for their entry should perhaps contact BF individually, just to confirm that this really did affect multiple people.

Oh well done Ben. And a Twelfth Doctor story too. Hurrah! I wonder which season this story will hail from. Having just watched the entire Twelfth Doctor's era it will be interesting to see Ben's take on Ole Grumpy.
I look forward to its release. Finally, well done to all those who entered. It's all good experience.
