Kumoricon http://www.kumoricon.com Oregon's Anime Convention Fri, 27 Oct 2006 21:06:17 +0000 http://wordpress.org/?v=1.5.2 en Anime article contest extended - *again* http://www.kumoricon.com/?p=93 http://www.kumoricon.com/?p=93#comments Wed, 25 Oct 2006 12:55:00 +0000 Administrator Uncategorized http://www.kumoricon.com/?p=93 The deadline for the anime article contest has been extended again until Saturday, November 11, 11:59pm.

This gives you a bit over two weeks more to write your article telling the world about Kumoricon! (We thought this was more reasonable than just a 3-day extension. :) ) See further down the page to review the official rules.
Good luck!
