“A waiver renouncing all rights in perpetuity must be signed to collect your prize.”

All rights? Including rights to attribution? Will the winner of the contest be credited as the creator of the story in the final product?

That is an excellent question. The winning Series Bible will be adapted by a professional screenwriter hired once the competition closes to further develop the Series Bible and create the screenplays for all six episodes each twenty-two minutes in length. Credit will be shared by both writers.
