Anime Festival Orlando 9  Announces YouTube™ Contest

Orlando, FL (May 15, 2008) – Anime Festival Orlando is giving fans of the event a chance to win two weekend passes to its convention being held at the Wyndham Orlando Resort from August 14 – 17, 2008.  Each year, attendees of AFO come from all over the world, so AFO wants to know: “How Do You Plan To Get To AFO?” 


To participate in the contest, fans will make a fun and entertaining video about how they plan to get to AFO9.  Their vignette can be up to 3 minutes long and as Anime Festival Orlando is always a family event, all entries must be PG.  Videos must be uploaded to YouTube ™  by the deadline of 11:59pm on June 30, 2008.  AFO staff will choose the winner, but entries will be screened for viewers at Anime Festival Orlando.


The winner of the AFO9 YouTube™ Contest will receive two 3-day membership passes to AFO9 with the “Passport to Orlandia” upgrade, two vintage AFO t-shirts as well as a $50.00 Visa Gift card: over $200 worth of prizes!
