Let me start by saying that out of all of the staff at FanimeCon, only a handful actually knows what the Awesome department entails.
I will list the obvious things here.
* It is in Marketing, but it can really go anywhere.
* The best part about Awesome is that no one knows what it does, but non-staffers ask "What is this Awesome department?" and staffers generally ask "Can I be apart of Awesome?" (answer is 'no').
What I'm saying is that no one knows what Awesome does, but speculation is between "nothing" and "everything".
