  Thanks to each and every one of you who submitted in 2019!

Each year that goes by, this decision gets harder and harder. We have seen an absolutely staggering amount of talent from all over the country, and if we could feature more of you we absolutely would. 

Every submission was viewed with the utmost respect for the hard work that each of you do, and we encourage everyone to stay in contact throughout the year and to apply again in the future.

If you submitted and were not selected, but would still like to attend and network with colleagues and industry, please reach out to us and we would be happy to accommodate. 

Thanks again to all of you, Please keep making this process incredibly hard for us and keep up the great work!

- Sincerely,

The LYAO Production Team
