I have a question, lots of anime fans promote Japanese culture and tend to enjoy other aspects of Japanese culture other than just anime. Is there a possibility that ACEN could have a trip to Japan as one of their prizes for next year? Like getting to take several friends on a trip to Japan to go and see the sights and visit Osaka, experience the food, culture, and learn some of the traditions? Like maybe have the winner go on a holiday? Like Bon Odori or Tanabata? I think a few nights in Japan would be a dream come true for most any anime fan. I noticed Colossalcon hosted one last year similar, and is supposed to host one this year too. I know various other conventions do it that are even smaller than ACEN. I think it would be a complete dream to those out there who adore the culture as much as I do.

I had no idea. It would be so cool though! Do you remember the third party?
I mean ACEN's so big, a big contest should be offered ^__^ to get all the members striving to be at their full game.
I know Colossalcon did it as the prize for the Masquerade winner.

it sure did bring some good cosplay (entered it and may have have won if not for paperwork error)
i understand the program fell apart due to internal difficulties
and shows no signs of happening again
~sigh~
i plan to poke main programings DH and see if its possible
but those funds may be felt better used for something many con goers can enjoy rather than 1or 2
~wants free trip~

Im sure it did! I mean, a prize like that I'd be going out all out trying to win. Really? That would be really nice ^__^ You're right. It would be cool if something like that could be available for several people and different contests. Like less expensive littler things but involving Japan =] or at least something to do with the Japanese culture. That reminds me! There's this really cool place in New York I've wanted to go to, the restaurant is ninja-themed and has trained professionals who go around practically stalking you and doing cool things to your food. It would be an awesome place to win a trip to! Click here for the website -- It's built like a Japanese castle, and is supposed to have some of the finest Japanese cuisine. This would be a dream to attend, considering the Ninjas that are trained to go into the vents and practically hide and scare you xD I first saw it on Travel Channel, giving out several trips to that would rule! ;o; You could do it for a variety of contests so even people that aren't skilled in one thing would have a chance to win a trip there in another contest.

O____O Wow, that's an awesome prop! ;o; I'm guessing you know Drew/Vash? xD That prop of yours would come in handy to fend off the ninja's xDD But yeah, it's real cool, let me see if I can find a video of the place. Here's one --> Click Here
