MetroCAF 2006

June 19, 2006
We are now entering the judging phase of MetroCAF, so I am closing the submissions window for all the misdirected and incomplete entries. If you haven't mailed or otherwise sent the missing elements of your application by now, you'll be too late. Any entry materials we receive after June 21 will not go to the judges.

The judging phase begins this weekend. Good luck to all the entrants! Stay tuned in July for more news.

Thanks and have a good summer,

Steve Rittler

The June 1st deadline has passed, and our volunteers are busy processing the well over 100 MetroCAF submissions we have received in preparation for the judging. Thank you all for your submissions--there wouldn't be a MetroCAF without you! You will be notified with a confirmation of your submission as soon as your application is completely processed. Thank you for your patience.

First and foremost: DON'T PANIC. E-mail me immediately at so we know it is on the way. Repack your submission, including the old envelope it was returned in (for proof), and OVERNITE MAIL it to this address:

MetroCAF 2006
c/o Mechanism Digital
514 West 24th St
3rd Floor
New York, NY 10011

If you do this promptly, I will accept your entry into the judging phase.

If you sent your submission to any Zip Code other than 10011 (you may be able to confirm this by checking your records) but it hasn't yet been returned to you, follow the instructions above as well, including a copy of your receipt from the first mailing. Remember, you MUST e-mail me so that I know you're not just a late submission.

Good Luck,
