Ojai, California - September 9, 2005 - For the first time in its six-year history, in addition to inviting back the industry leaders for whom it is renowned, Flashforward is accepting session and speaker proposals directly through its website in a search for fresh talent. Proposals will be considered for Flashforward2006, which is taking place at the Washington State Convention and Trade Center in Seattle from February 27 to March 2.

Proposals are sought from experienced teachers, designers, and developers: people who can show the how-to, as well as the why, when, and where to a highly sophisticated audience. Flashforward is looking for cutting-edge, jaw-dropping work that presenters will deconstruct. We are especially seeking speakers with a passion for sharing their knowledge in a generous and genuine way. To submit a proposal, click on the following link:


The theme for the Seattle conference is "Flash as a Platform" design, creativity, video, motion graphics, imaging, innovation, new workflows, new techniques, new frontiers, new transformations, new opportunities, open minds, open source, open standards, open platform, and open possibilities.

Join Flashforward in its mission to educate, inspire, and enable the Flash community to push the bar as high as it can go. If you have something great to share, submit a speaker application today.

The Flashforward Conference, an event focused on Macromedia Flash, boasts a legacy of 14 events in San Francisco, New York, London, and Amsterdam, serving over 20,000 attendees over the past six years.
