On my mind too. There will be one. We have already lined up an exciting initial sponsor entirely by accident. I'd really like a mini site or something too. A special WordPress theme maybe, I'll see what I can whip up

Are rules still the same? Posting something TTL-ish (CMOS-ish) here in forum before deadline? ;)

Actually it's a little bit different - now you need to use a special entry form submit, not only forum post as before

As it seems that competition is closed now, is there some kind of expected time schedule when we can expect judges to decide and winners announcement?

Nope, no week-long extension.

Sorry guys, but we decided that the original deadline stays. It would be unfair to all the entries that finished in time, and we’re obligated to a timeline by our sponsors.

We’ll probably skip a few years and try again in the future

Sorry for bringing the bad news.

Open 7400 Competition ends today, 31st of October at midnight PST.

What do you mean by "we'll probably skip a few years"? Is there no contest next year?

I guess he meant to say deadlines will be strict for upcoming few years until all of the sponsors agree to allow last minute time extension.

We meant that there most likely won't be a contest next year, but could happen again some time in the future.
best regards FIlip.

let's hold our own competition! and make everybody a winner:

every entrant donates 1 prize.
all entrants vote on other entries eurovision style.
everyone chooses one prize, winner chooses first and so on down the list.

That sounds like a pretty good idea, if there is no contest next year. What would be the guidelines for prizes?
