That's 2010. Looking at the date, probably when Amazon first set things up. I was there for a while, until I was sure I was not the winner of that 1 million
A lot have changed. The review, the forum. And in order to be serious, Amazon have to toe the Writers Guild of America line.
So you can basically say for some of beginners (or even experienced, since back then 1 million is a lot of money) this is one of the good outlet to provide your script to.
One of the best, and most often requested, was private submission.
Unlike the beginning, where it was more like fake review, viral like popularity compo, etc, Amazon keep changing things up, specially when some of the writers are member of WGA.
So now Amazon Studio indeed, you can say it, a studio. You register your script, submit it to Amazon, within 45 days, if they think you script is not good enough, then you just pull it out and shop it at other places.
I think this is good for beginners. Since once Amazon have buy two or three of your script, and can start using that as leverage to go direct to other studios.
