October 10th, 2012 -- Upper Darby, PA --While being a volunteer for The Asian Karaoke Idol Invitational has always been (& will always be) an integral part of our continued success, the Team TAKII Coalition's sponsors & affiliates have proven to be just as vital for our financial & promotional stability. The purchase of a Coalition Sponsorship through the "Team TAKII Coalition Apps" form allows dynamic donors from all backgrounds to select from multiple levels of sponsorship in exchange for priceless expose that only "the world's most extreme Asian culture fusion festival" can provide, 2nd to none. It is through this unique partnership of invaluable resources & talent that our Coalition Sponsorship program continues to thrive...& we want you to become a part of the action!

Upon your purchase of a Coalition Sponsorship from having filled out our "Team TAKII Coalition Apps" form, you will be sent a PayPal invoice to the email address you included in the form itself. Payments can be made online via PayPal (which is preferred), or mailed-in via check/money order (ATTN: PDNMZ, RE: TAKII Coalition Sponsorships, 7112 Penarth Ave., Upper Darby, PA 19082). This payment will need to be received no later than 7 days after your "Team TAKII Coalition Apps" form submission, or the last day of pre-regging for that season of TAKII in particular, whichever comes 1st. In the event that payment isn't received, then your Coalition Sponsorship portion of the form will be rejected.
Any & all logos/promo material can be made in black/white or color; we will not charge you more for 1 choice, or the other. We will require, however, that your images are at least 150-300 DPI & are in either PDF, JPEG, or PNG format for best results. So that the words "paid advertisement" don't have to appear all over the place, we ask that any & all of your ads present yourself & TAKII (& our shared principles for taking Asian culture fandom "to the extreme") in the best light possible. All ad material must be received within 7 days after your payment for your Coalition Sponsorship is confirmed as "received", or the last day of pre-regging for that season of TAKII in particular, whichever comes 1st. Any ads that are found to violate any of our guidelines (ie: inappropriate content, bad specs, etc.) & aren't revised by you to meet our standards in an acceptable time frame will not get your Coalition Sponsorship refunded & can be rejected by Team TAKII Coordinators with/without notice. Other tidbits & frequently asked questions can be found on our Coalition Sponsorship page: http://amen.pdnmz.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=71&t=121
Our Coalition Sponsorship program is only 1 of many ways that you can get involved with The Asian Karaoke Idol invitational, but it is an avenue that allows for you to have a greater impact on how it is we spread our passion for all that is Asian culture fandom to the world & beyond. We thank you in advance for your support & look forward to creating long-lasting memories for many seasons, years, & generations to come! ^_^

ABOUT TAKII 14 ~NEW YEAR'S EVOLUTION~
The stockings will be hung from the chimney with care. Auld acquaintances shall not be forgot. And the seasonal references could go on & on & before we know it, TAKII 14 ~New Year's Evolution~ will be upon us! "The reason for the season" will be descending upon Philly, PA's The Rotunda on December 29th & 30th 2012, making it the perfect place to enjoy some after-Christmas chaos & pre-New Year's partying, otaku-fied TAKII-style! With the success of May 2012's TAKII 13 ~United We Stand~, we've carefully extracted the best parts of last season & will combine it with some plans for this beloved festival/convention hybrid that have been in the works for years, giving fans all over the universe something to salivate over before-hand & never forget once TAKII 14 comes to pass.
