Animethon, the Edmonton Anime Convention runs August 8, 9, and 10 at MacEwan City Centre.

Animethon is an annual festival focusing on the popular culture of anime (Japanese Animation) held yearly in the city of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. This year, Animethon will be take place August 8-10, 2008 at the Grant MacEwan College City Centre Campus in downtown Edmonton. This is Animethon's fifteenth consecutive year, ranking it among the oldest annual anime conventions in North America. Last year, we sold approximately 3633 passes and had about another 500-600 take us up on the free anime offer.

For those unfamilar with Animethon, there is much, much more than just watching anime videos for free. Admission grants access to a variety of anime-themed contests such as a costume competition and karaoke to name a few. There are also video game tournaments, a dance, improv comedy and more. It's also a great place to meet friends or find that collector's item in the exihibition hall.

I spoke this morning on the New Media Panel: Beyond the Page, and had a wonderful time.

The conference was excellent. I am feeling revitalised, and I think I really needed that. If you didn’t get to go to the conference this year, I highly suggest watching the Get Publishing Web site for details on upcoming years.

My thanks go out to all the speakers, planners, sponsors, and participants for making this such a valuable experience.
