12" of Sin, in Las Vegas, Nevada, has been a frustrating competition. Their seventh exhibition was way back in 2018, but the eighth got delayed by the Covid-19 pandemic, with the deadline pushed back from July 1, 2021 to July 1, 2022. That's how they advertised the deadline on their blog
, but as I was in the process of submitting my entry a couple of nights ago, I noticed that the deadline on that page was July 1, 2023.
Upon investigation I found that the deadline was listed as 2023 in three different places
. So, I wrote to the organizers to ask for clarification. The entry fee is $50, plus $3.25 processing fee (!), so I'm not about to spend that kind of money submitting to an exhibit that may not even happen for another year, if at all!
But meanwhile I went to a lot of work to prepare an entry. So here it is, damn it. You get to see it, if no one else.
