The new deadline is June 30, 2010. There is no hanging/submission fee for art gallery submissions that are donated to the Infinitus Auction, which will take place on Sunday at the Leaving Feast, and the proceeds from the auction will go to HPEF (the nonprofit behind Infinitus), Kids Need to Read and the HP Alliance
Submissions may include the following: fandom, whimsical, fantasy, 2D and 3D pieces, sculpture, photographic, multimedia, textile creations, and arts and crafts. Parodies and transformative works are permitted.
Please check out our Call for Art for more information regarding the submission process and hanging fees for items not donated to the Auction, and send any questions to artgallery @ infinitus2010.org (without the spaces).
Who wants to fight through Black Friday crowds at 5:00 a.m.? Shopping for your Infinitus registration and add-ons will be much easier. And to make it even sweeter, we're offering a $10 gift certificate for use at the Infinitus merchandise table when you buy a regular or Merlin's Circle registration on Black Friday (November 27, 2010).
And just to stay in the holiday mood, from noon (Eastern time) on November 24 through December 31, 2009, you will get a $5 gift certificate for use at the Infinitus merchandise table when you buy a regular registration, upgrade to Merlin's Circle or add on a keynote luncheon.
So this holiday season, pick up an Infinitus registration for yourself or a friend - or treat a friend to lunch next July!

Remember these things:
1. Formal Programming Prefects get a guaranteed seat at the programming panels and sessions where they are Prefecting - it's mostly time-keeping and letting AV know if there are any AV issues during the session.
2. The Security Team shirts were designed by lizardspotsto the website</a>, learn more, sign up, and help out!
How many of you will be in San Fran in under 100 hours?!?!?!?

We’re heartbroken. Please understand that IMAX and WB did everything in their power to try to make this happen for us. The problem did not lie with them in any way, and it came right down to the wire with the negotiation process. When push came to shove, however, Paramount simply refused to work out a deal.
We are as upset and angry as you are surely feeling right now. But! The important thing to remember is that we will STILL have a “Half-Blood Prince” showing - all together, all united by our love of the story.
We hedged our bets a couple weeks ago and purchased tickets to the regular screen's 11:30 PM show. This means that we'll move forward with our plans for the line party, starting around 9:30 PM, and the doors will open a few minutes after 11:00 PM. You can still pick up your tickets at the Azkatraz Booking Office, which will be in the Embarcadero on the 3rd floor Thursday from noon to 6 pm, and at the Metreon itself beginning at 10:00 PM until about 11:15. If your travel plans preclude you getting to the theatre before 11, please write to the registrar and we will determine whether we can resell your tickets. For those of you picking them up, you will also receive a small refund (the difference between the IMAX price and the regular admission price) at that time.
Furthermore, IMAX is so cool that they have given us some consolation gifts and a few special prizes, which we'll be using as door prizes for the line party. So come ready to test your knowledge of Potter and your luck! Ten people will win a pair of complimentary IMAX tickets that they can use anywhere in the U.S. once the IMAX prints are released nationwide.
Meanwhile, if you simply can't contain your indignation at the way Paramount has forced IMAX and WB to disappoint us, we will also have letters prepared - addressed and pre-printed - for you to take, add your own comments, sign, and send to the appropriate office at their studios, to let them know just how this powerful bloc of fans responds to having our hopes dashed like this. Please take them when you get your tickets - and help us make the fans' voices be heard so that next time something like this comes up, we won't get the same treatment.
But for now, let’s put this unfortunate outcome behind us, and focus on the important fact that we can make plans! We can get excited for the movie! We will all see it together!
You know what else usually cheers me up? Shopping! And Barnes & Noble has graciously extended the bookfair (# 581066) through Friday, July 10, so that you can use it to purchase paperback copies of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows,” among other titles, for the Prisoners’ Literature Project, or for yourselves! Still need an airplane book? Go to Barnes & Noble and give them the flyer or the bookfair # 581066 to get your purchase applied to the HPEF bookfair and help a worthy charity supply incarcerated prisoners with quality reading material. Dictionaries, best-sellers, and other titles are also very welcome and in demand for the Project. Go here: bookfair page for more information about the bookfair and the Prisoners’ Literature Project.
Look for a new Informant before the end of the week, and we’ll see you in 10 days!
