Something to note as well, they are limiting it to 750 entries per region in the first round. Enter early!
I'm definitely happy about the judging being down in Portland instead of up in Alaska. I saw some numbers posted that said last year PNW was the lowest number of entries in the US (Canada was the lowest overall), I suspect part of it was because of the judging in Alaska.
I think the only regions that have a serious chance at running into the limit are the old west and northeast. Of course, that doesn't mean you shouldn't get in as early as possible.
