Wanted: Bio or Mechanical: Send MOCs to BrickFair

Because we're awesome like that.
BZPower prides itself in overtaking the Bionicle display at any LEGO convention, but with BrickFair being the country's largest means for AFOLs to congregate and show off, we count on you, the members to help us make it memorable as we unforgivingly show just what the Lincoln Logs of LEGO themes can do. How? By mailing your MOCs to stand with the best and brightest creations of BrickFair 2012. Everything you need to know follows.
BrickFair 2012 is just over a month away. If you can come and join the fun, fantastic! If you might be a little too far away, you can still send your MOCs to be a part of the show. Bionicle always has an amazing display full of MOCs, and that could not happen if BZPower members did not send their creations to be a part of the awesomeness.
We want your MOCs. These MOCs will be seen by the 1,100 BrickFair participants and probably over 20,000 members of the general public. Just think of all the "ooohs" and "aaahs" and photographs your MOC could get.
For those of you interested in sending your MOCs to Brickfair, to help make this display more awesome than the BZPowercast, here's the info you need:

All MOCs mailed in should have two copies of their return address, and $10.00 to cover return shipping (or exact postage if out of the USA).* Additionally, photographs of the completed MOC should be included,* and perhaps a few simple building steps, for MOC identification and in case the MOCs become partially disassembled during shipment. This happens frequently, and though we will have several master MOCists in attendance to display your MOCs, sometimes even we can't figure it out! To best avoid this, please package MOCs with bubble wrap (NOT PACKING POPCORN) and in ziplock bags. Also, if desired, include the name of your MOC, as well as your name and a small description, for a "MOC Card" during display.
Bionicle artists can send their artwork to BrickFair too! If you want your work displayed at BF12, send it along with $5 to cover the return. Some advice for sending art: get a large printout somewhere like Staples or Kinkos, and send it in a shipping tube.
Be sure to confirm the estimated date of arrival with the Post Office/courier before shipment. MOCs should arrive by July 27th. You are also welcome to bring and pick up your MOCs in person, if you are close enough to do so.
That is all for now. It's about time to get excited for BrickFair!
*Seriously, I have kept a few small things because I could not return them to their owner for whatever reason. Include a list and photos of full contents and return postage.
