Every screenplay competition uses some sort of technology to help them manage the screenplays writers submit each year. Some use Coverfly, while others use Salesforce, Dropbox, Google Drive, or even build their own software.
Competitions and festivals need to aggregate all of their submissions across various platforms (FilmFreeway, ISA, Submittable, etc.) so that the administrators and judges can access the screenplays in one place. Coverfly makes it possible for competitions to do this by allowing them to import their submissions from these third-party submission platforms into Coverfly.
When a competition imports a writer's submission into Coverfly, only that competition has access to the writer's submission on Coverfly, however, many competitions also allow the writer who submitted the project to access it within Coverfly.
