Asynchronous Fall Forensics Tournament

Hosted by ProtoCommunications LLC

October 10 - December 12, 2020

On behalf of ProtoCommunications, and in collaboration with ForensicsTournament.net (FTN), we are pleased to invite you and your forensics team to the Asynchronous Fall Forensics Tournament! We are also using this invitation as an opportunity to announce an internship that will be paid by the fees of this very tournament.

At the end of last season, when the Coronavirus swept through the world, we at ProtoCommunications took it up ourselves to host an Individual Events tournament. We registered 85 events, from 13 colleges, and 4 different states. We learned a lot about the hidden labor that makes an asynchronous tournament. We have also been tracking the trajectory of COVID-19, and can conclusively say that we are disappointed, and worried about how this will affect the upcoming forensics season. 

In our previous invitation, we advocated that forensics is more than meeting together for tournaments. It is about sharing ideas. Professionalism. Credibility. ProtoCommunications would again like to offer our experience and resources to host a full-service tournament for all speech and debate events. For the first tournament, we reimagined how individual events could be performed, judged, tabbed, and awarded. For this tournament, we are reimagining debate events in an asynchronous environment. We believe that our approach is a unique, and appropriate addition to the world of competitive forensics.

You will find all of the information needed to enter your team in the tournament in the attached Tournament Invite. For a complete description of tournament events, please refer to the current Constitution and By-laws of your respective forensics association.

We look forward to seeing more of your incredible work!
