Here is the Press Release ...

ANIME FANS WORLDWIDE TO CELEBRATE GLOBAL SHINKAI DAY 2009

Fans of Japanese anime creator Makoto Shinkai are gathering worldwide in cyberspace February 27-28 for Global Shinkai Day 2009. The unofficial English-language fansite Cherry Blossoms Falling (http://cherryblossomsfalling.myfastforum.org) is hosting the event with discussion and contests, calling upon fans from every part of the globe to show their appreciation and support for the works of this highly-acclaimed director. A chat widget will be available on the main page for fan discussions. Contests will held for inspired fan-made works in art, film and essay. No subscription is necessary to participate. Participants who own copies of the four anime by Mr. Shinkai (She and Her Cat, Voices of a Distant Star, The Place Promised in Our Early Days, and 5 Centimeters Per Second) are encouraged to watch these in chronological order during some portion of the 24-hour period beginning at 8 pm EST. A proposed schedule is posted on the site.

The unofficial Chinese-language fansite (http://www.shinkai.cn) will also be participating, showcasing fan-made short films inspired by Mr. Shinkai's works. The unofficial Japanese English-language fansite Makoto Shinkai Fan Web (http://daike.hp.infoseek.co.jp) is also lending its support through news and information.

I'll copy this to my blog (http://anime.nickistre.net), if you want.  Hell, I can add the banner on the top of my theme with a link to the announcement if you think that's a good idea.

I would advise anyone who sends this as a "press release" to first find out how to format it as such. There are websites that show how to format a press release. If you send it without properly formatting it, it will probably be rejected outright.

It would be better to send it as simply a news item from Cherry Blossoms Falling. Press releases are mainly used by companies and government agencies. Just make sure you date it and give some contact info.

Ok .... I added my email address on the bottom for contact.

I'll send to ComixWave tonight.

Gleo, let me know where you send this too so that we don't double up.

Thanks again for all of your help.

Laz

I sent one to Anime News Network. Haven't heard back yet.

Also, sent one to Anime Vice. They've already posted it, with a nice supportive article by the site administrator.

I'm going to forgo sending one to the two print magazines and stick with online publications instead.

Just checked Anime News Network, and they've got it posted under "Press Releases." So I guess the "press release" label is ok, even though I didn't call mine that. Oh, well. MORE COVERAGE! WOO HOO! Very Happy

Posted it up on my anime blog.

Going to try to remember to put the banner on top of the site to link to the entry directly later.
