What better time to start thinking about next summer just as the last bits of this one fade away?  From the press release:

NXNE invites musicians, filmmakers, and comics to apply for a chance to be a part of one of the world’s premier arts festivals. Submissions will be accepted – online only – at until January 31, 2013. Artists can visit and follow the links to submit music, films, or comedy video/audio to NXNE. Submissions received by December 31 cost $28 — after December 31, the fee rises to $38. 

NXNE Interactive is also seeking submissions, via the popular NXNEi Panel Programmer.

NXNE is proud to include Comedy as an official stream of the 2013 festival in addition to MusicFilm and Interactive.

Building on a stellar 2012, in which NXNE’s 75 comics drew rave reviews, the festival looks forward to an even stronger comedy lineup for next June.
