WOW AX this is really great!! Great line up of judges too.

When is the deadline on this??

I just bought on ebay my 2nd Croco gator puppet. If any of have seen my croco puppet in my library show then you know that CROCO is a BIG part of my show. Well Croco works a lot of shows over the past 5 years and he is getting a bit worn. AX is going to give him an operation but have not gotten the time to send him out to CA. So I bought a 2nd one on EBAY. I must say the axtell puppets hold there value. I paid 300.00 for this puppet and Axtell sells it for 350.00

So I love the contest idea AX! You are always creating new things and ideas. you are the man!!

I was just kidding, but that was my reaction when I saw the list of judges. I'll try to get an entry together.

We are going to have a lot of categories for "BEST OF....." so there will be many winners. What else could help reduce the "stress level" or intimidation of the judges?

Steve,
You couldn't have picked better judges. Don't worry about the stress level. Since we won't be standing in front of the judges it's just a matter of focusing on delivering the routine to the camera. It shouldn't be too hard. Performing in front of these judges would be another thing. Like asking Tiger Woods to watch you golf.

Are the finalists being announced before the winners? In the original rules it said they would be announced on the 15th, but then it also said the winners wouldn't be announced until January.
