Anonymous submission reminders

Adjudication of the SEAMUS National Conference is a double-blind review. This means that the judges do not know who you are, and are reviewing your work anonymously. Any distinguishing marks that negate the double-blind review will disqualify the submission, and cause it to be withdrawn from consideration.

Please note that iTunes and Compressor can automatically add your name to the ID3 tag when encoding audio to MP3. Make sure to remove all ID3 tags from your MP3. Please make sure that your name, or any other identifying marks, are not present in this metadata. Audio files that contain identifying information will be automatically withdrawn from consideration.
