#DVPit Update

Exciting Update to the #DVPit contest:

As many of you Twitter pitch contest veterans know, the retweet can be a terrific signal booster for your pitch.

For #DVPit, things will be a little different.

Retweets will be used only by a select cadre of EDITORS.

Cool, right?

Here's the deal:
Some editors will be part of the regular contest and will request along with the agents.

Other editors, however, want to participate but can't request or consider material from un-agented authors.

These folks will RETWEET pitches that really resonate with them in order to signal-boost the projects to the participating agents on the feed. 

A HEART (<3) means REQUEST.
RETWEET means support.
Please do not confuse a retweet for a request.

The editors who retweet are not requesting your material.  These editors don’t normally participate in these events because of their company rules, so let's respect that.

Only send your materials to the agents/editors that request specifically by <3.
