Just a quick reminder of the upcoming deadline for the AFO3 AMV Contest.
Videos must be postmarked by July 19th (that's this Friday) or uploaded to the server by July 26th (next Friday). I will also be in attendence at this month's Anime Explosion, where you can hand deliver your entries to me. Yes, Anime Explosion is this Friday, at midnight as well. This month's free showing being Tenku no shiro Rapyuta (Laputa: Castle in the Sky).
I will also be at Otakon next weekend, so provided you let me know in advance, and find me at the con, I'll be willing to take entries there as well.

Here are the bits of new business:
The AMV Feedback Panel will be a place you can submit a video and receive feedback from at least one of the panel members. All of the panel members are professionals in some facet of the audio visual trade. One video per person please. Videos must be sent in prior to the convention so that the panel members will have a chance to view them. You must also pre-register for this by emailing me using the email address below.
We have some special judges lined up for the AMV Contest as well. I'm not at liberty to say who yet, but information will be posted shortly.
