Promise to keep us updated on this...and I sure hope you're going to be able to attend the awards ceremony!
I would love to attend as its held in the Ginza District in Tokyo. Been a long time since I was there last. Digital was not a consumer choice at that time. Here's some more of the email with a link to the map for the location:

Too bad about the transportation expenses, but maybe you can hop a private jet that's heading that way. No matter what, it is very exciting and very well deserved. Fingers crossed you can make it, Dorf!

Great work mate and very well deserved.

Can I ask whether the win is rewarded with more than a free Calendar and the admiration of your peers? A camera maybe :wink:

I've already checked my calendar and I'm working that weekend. Shucks, as I do have enough frequent flyer points to go. Its just that my better half has those reserved for a family trip to Hawaii in the near future.
