If you want material to be added to exhibition, I don't think the current  
submission process is a very effective one. One practical example: me and  
Servando Barreiro played on a 40min audiovisual laptop performance some  
weeks ago, with very good public reaction. But, I think there wasn't any  
"affiliated" pd user in the audience, or at least not any one that is  
involved in the "community". That means, this project will never make it  
to the exhibition, because it's gone now.
Also, there are some local groups of people doing pd, but there aren't to  
my knowledge many activities of "pd groups" - and people who even know  
this page, or care enough to go through the process of adding something.  
Since the project authors can never submit anything, many things will get  
lost in the filters.

In fact, in 6 months of existence only you, Hans, and an other person  
added entries. Does it means there's not much being done with Pd?

Anyway, if the only condition is not to be affiliated with a project, it's  
very easy for 2 persons to agree: "you submit my project, I'll submit  
yours". Wouldn't it be better to let everyone submit insteresting  
material, and have a group of voluntaries/users filter out the material  
that isn't interesting enough? Or a vote system like "let it stay" / "take  
it out"?
