Well frankly, after looking through the list, he's not the only one sending stuff that's been all over the place :P.

This may be OT, but I want to upload my video (was a finalist, unfortunately didn't win) but there is no entry in the upload system for this contest.

Is it the organizer's responsibility to enter the contest, or can I do it?

I'm guessing Alan and company still have to get back into the PA/NJ area from Ohio...

This might take a while... :-)

longdrive is long.

OK kids, here's the results. Categories and Best of Show were determined by the audience vote. We only had 500 ballots on hand for the AMV screening and handed them all out. We got a good 250 votes back. If you weren't present at the con to pick up your award, it will be mailed to you shortly.

There was no overflow. It was proposed, however Programming did not put it in the final schedule.
