CONTEST! Write the info page! *deadline extended*
« on: October 03, 2006, 12:40:44 pm »
All you happy anime lovers! It's time to tell the public just how cool we are.

This is your chance to write the article that everyone should read about anime conventions. If you've got the journalistic touch, and can inspire others to share in the love of anime and Japanese culture, then this is the contest for you! The article you write could be Kumoricon's official info page and press release.

Requirements are as follows:
1. The submission should sell Kumoricon to the general public, focusing on those with little or no experience with anime/ Japanese culture.
2. The submission should be between 600 and 800 words long.
3. The submission should endeavor to use proper grammar and spelling.
4. The author may submit one photograph which enhances the value of the article. The author must have permission to use the photo with credit to the photographer, or be the photographer.
5. Submissions are due by no later than Saturday, November 11, 2006, 11:59pm. [extended from October 21, 2006, 11:59p.m.]
6. The contest is open to all, including current Kumoricon Staff.

The winner will be chosen by the board of Altonimbus Entertainment. All submissions and corresponding photos become the property of Kumoricon/ Altonimbus Entertainment. Articles may be edited for spelling, grammar, statistical corrections, and content.

Send your submission with your real name and forum name (if applicable) to
chair@kumoricon.org

The winner will be announced on October 29th, 2006.
Good luck to all our entrants!
You'll be loved, you'll be loved, like you never have known. When memories of me will seem more like bad dreams. Just a series of blurs, like I never occurred. Someday, you will be loved.

Due to a small number of entries, this contest has been extended until Friday, October 27, 11:59pm. You still have a bit more time! (I know it's not the easiest to write something on short notice...but it's possible. Draft today, revisions tomorrow, proofread Friday... :))

Ok...we know...3 days isn't enough. So now the contest has been extended to:

Saturday, November 11, 2006, 11:59pm. [edit much later: fixed day of week. It incorrectly said Friday. The date of the month was correct already.]

Now you've got enough time still to write that great article! :)

The message you quoted was posted 2 weeks ago. :) Also, it was posted on the front page.

However, today's reminder was just informational in nature, no changes...but this is exactly why I posted it. So nobody who has been working on it, and might be nearly done, or able to easily wrap it up, just forgets about it before the deadline.

Oh god...I screwed up. November 11 is a Saturday. Well, at least, that means, if you didn't notice it, then you might have an additional day more than you thought you did to work on it. (Glad I didn't do the opposite.) Apologies. I got the day of week correct on the front page, and even in the first post in this thread. (Just now I edited my reminder post to correct it.)

the reason why I would like a section is because I am working hard on putting this together and I would like it to be used in some way.

Okay, it's been several months since anyone made a comment here.  I just wanted to know if an entry had been dietermine & if we can look at it, or something.
I have a new blog!  It is an anime-themed discussion site.  Please check it out, and share your two cents!

It was posted on the info page a few months ago. It was announced on the front page at that time, too. :) Sorry for not updating this thread.
