Who is the judge ? Originally it was fier, myzery, and dwante. They were fair judges and I like to see them on the table again to give their reasons why they like a particular entry. They were very experienced in determing everyone's full ability in each entry.

Asking CM Astra, she kindly stated the event has no particular theme but entries must be iRO related. So yes!

Thanks for the response. Are the participants also given free reins regarding aspect ratio and stuff for visual arts and some other particularities for the other categories as well?

Is this accurate? I feel like one of the dates I underlined and enlarged is wrong!


Don't you know? iRO has the ability to go backwards in time, they just only do it on rare occasions. :U

Correct! No particular theme this time around, just RO related :)

 

Who is the judge ? Originally it was fier, myzery, and dwante. They were fair judges and I like to see them on the table again to give their reasons why they like a particular entry. They were very experienced in determing everyone's full ability in each entry.

 

The judges will consist of the rest of the CM Team and other WarpPortal staff this time around!

 

Can the original song composition be acapella??

 

Absolutely! Hit us with that good good singing~

 

Is this accurate? I feel like one of the dates I underlined and enlarged is wrong!

 

WOOPS! That was totally my bad. The OP has been fixed! True end date is July 23.
