Not enough submissions?  What do we need to do?  Extend the deadline and talk it up on the podcasts?  (Which we would have done already but [insert whining here about being busy].)

Alright, submission deadline has been extended.  Probably until the end of August, but not 100% guaranteed.

I am going to forward the entries to the judges in August.  I'll probably start around the end of the first week.   Judges, be sure to get your submissions to me before then.

Still looking for one more judge.  The judges will narrow the field to 10 per podcast and 10 for Escape Artists in general.  I'll take the lists and combine them, so we'll be voting on 10 to 30 per category.

Bonus:  If you submit your entries before August 1st, you can enter up to 10 per category.  After that, it will be 5 submissions per person per category.

Will be away from the computer until next week at a minimum.  Send you submissions as per instructions.  Still need one more judge.  I will forward submissions to judges when I get back.

We don't have internet at the new house yet, so Tinkerbell will be keeping my air card.

i dont think i can be a judge, my judgement might be biased!

I'd like to hear my options, so I could weigh them, what do you say?
Five pounds?  Six pounds? Seven pounds?

It's ok, I'm going to take the top 10 from each judge to compile the list.

Ok, I'm sorting through the submissions today and sending them to the judges.  If you want a chance to get the first impression, submit your entries now.  TheYearIs2262@gmail.com or PM me.

Haven't gotten any new submissions in a while.  A birdie tells me there might be an announcement coming...

The 13th person to submit entries to the official Contest Email Address will get a free shirt.

The new contest email address forwards to me, so I still receive them.

All submissions should be submitted to the contest email only.  I will no longer accept PM submissions.

Ok, folks, we haven't gotten very many submissions since the Metacast.  Tell your friends, and send in your tag lines.  I guarantee they won't be the worst we've seen!

Also, we still need artwork.  Send your 1 color drawings to artwork@escapeartists.net.  Simple is better for this run, as we're trying to keep costs down.  However, if you have some awesome stuff it might get featured on future shirts as well.  If your artwork is chosen for the current crop of shirts, you'll get a free shirt.  If it's used in the future, you will receive royalties. 

If there is a piece of artwork that is promising, but not quite there, we'll let you know so you can tweak it.

Creating some tag lines right now. They sound pretty lame, even to me.

You can also submit entries to contest@escapeartists.net.  I'll get them either way.

I prefer ridiculed, but use what you want.

I gotta say, you're one of he best sports we've had as a newbie in quite a while.  You can always PM the mods with questions you might have.

Submissions have been forwarded to our 3 judges.  They will get back to me and I will get a poll up.
