06:23 pm - CosFest update CosFest's start time has been changed to 6:30pm. The date is the same, the event has just been moved back an hour in order to give us more prep time in the concert room before the show. Contestants will have pre-show use of the concert stage to rehearse if they wish to do so.
Seating will be at 6pm, and the event will begin at 6:30.
Furthermore, press & photographer policy is as follows: The first row or two of audience seating will be for press and photographers, and general spectators are behind that. Those with Press badges will be seated first, so they get first pick of that front section.
The general audience will be allowed in 10-15 minutes later. At this time, non-press photographers will be allowed into the remainder of the front area on a first-come, first-served basis if they also wish to make use of it - show your Big Shiny Camera** when you come in to gain access.
Please note that due to space constraints, we will not have a separate photo-op area.
(** "Big Shiny Camera" denotes something like a Digital SLR or other fancy camera used by serious photographers.)
