If you would like to apply for sponsorship, you must email volunteers@cryptozoic.com. Please put “World Cup Sponsorship” in the subject line. Here is some useful information:
• Full or partial sponsorships will be provided a shared hotel room from March 3rd and leaving on March 7th, 2011. You may apply to be provided a flight or other travel arrangements. Those who do not require sponsorship for their travel are more likely to be accepted.
• You will be provided lunch _or_ a small stipend. No other costs will be covered.
• Judges are expected to wear nice, clean black slacks with black shoes. Additionally, you will be issued two Cryptozoic judge shirts if you have not already received one (from working a previous event). If you fail to meet the dress code, you will be asked to remedy the situation and if you cannot, you will not be asked to attend other shows on behalf of Cryptozoic. Non-judge staff will be expected to wear nice, clean blue jeans (with no holes, not tattered, no rips) and a Cryptozoic Event Staff shirt. If you have not received one yet, you will be given two.

• Your name.

• Airport you would fly out of if flight sponsorship is needed.
• Emergency contact information and drug allergies.
• Any special requirements you have.
• Remember to include the name of event that you are requesting sponsorship for in the subject line.

What is expected?

• You will bring three days worth of appropriate attire.
• You will either conduct administrative duties or judge (depending on staffing requirements and sponsorship requests) Friday, Saturday and Sunday. This will require long days with almost no breaks.
• You will prepare for the event thoroughly. If you are judging, you can start by reviewing all available rules, procedures and policies.

What is NOT paid for (partial list of common assumptions)?

• Food (Each person will receive either lunch or one small stipend each day).
• Taxi fares, bus fares, metro tickets, etc.
• Additional room costs (room service, movies, laundry, etc).
• Ticket change fees (if you change your ticket, you pay all related fees).

Hotel Info:

• If you receive hotel sponsorship, you will be sharing a hotel room with at least one other person working the event.
• Spouses, friends, volunteers, players, significant others are not permitted.
• Your hotel will be paid for starting the day before the event and last until the day after the event. If you wish to stay longer or arrive earlier, you must arrange for this yourself.

Judge Testing:

• There will be Artisan level or higher testing at this event.

Important Notes:

• This is not like a vacation, this is like work. It can be very rewarding and valuable, but it is hard work.
• If you are not chosen, don't take it personally. There are a limited number of sponsorships available. Again, if you would like to increase your chances of being accepted, covering your own flight and hotel will go a long way.

Please send your sponsorship request to volunteers@cryptozoic.com. The deadline to apply is Friday, December 17th, 2010.

That made almost no sense.If you read it correctly albi, this post is about sponsorship as a judge , if your a player or on a team then it is up to you to figure out how to arrive at the event.
