Contribute To The Conbook!

Hello artists and writers! Our training manual — also known as the Furnal Equinox 2013 conbook — needs artwork, as well as some short stories.

Why should you contribute? Well, our conbook goes to every attendee of the convention. So it provides easy exposure for your work — and it helps make our conbook more attractive and more entertaining, too!

Artwork and stories should be original, unpublished submissions that fit with our theme for this year.

When you hear "Furries in Uniform", you probably think of soldiers in the army. But your artwork or stories can be about any other uniformed personnel, such as firefighters, police officers, or EMTs. Alternatively, you might want to think outside the box, and focus on other professions that wear uniforms such as doctors and nurses, sports athletes, and fast food workers — actually, maybe not the last one...

The full artwork and story requirements can be found here, but to keep it brief:

  • We're looking for high quality JPG, PNG or TIF quality images as greyscale or line art.
  • Stories can be no longer than 1,800 words.

You can upload your submissions through the Conbook page. But do so quickly: the deadline is February 8, 2013.

So get drawing, and get writing!

Entertain The Troops -- We Need Events!

With a bigger venue planned for Furnal Equinox 2013, and more people coming through the doors, we need people to entertain and train the troops. So if you want to run a panel, event, or game tournament at FE, we want you!

If you ran any programming at a previous FE, we've sent you an e-mail inviting you to return for 2013, and we definitely encourage you to get in touch with us with your ideas for this year.

For everyone else, FE is a great opportunity to share your knowledge, learn something new, have fun, be entertaining, or just meet up with furries who like the same things you do! The vast majority of panel hosts are our own attendees, and we couldn't offer it without your support.

We had plenty of programming last year covering a number of tracks, including:

  • Art: Animal Drawing, Digital Painting, Stupid Artist Tricks
  • Entertainment: Night at the Improv, Fursuit Charades, Karaoke
  • Fursuiting: Fursuit Photography, Performing in Suit, Animatronics
  • Gaming: Werewolf, Ironclaw, Munchkin
  • Now You Know: Furry Science, Online DJing & Podcasting
  • Social: Felines, Greymuzzles, Ponies of Equestria

So whether you're a board gaming fanatic, an artist wanting to share your skills, or a brony... your event can easily be a success!

We support and promote all of our programming. Your panel will get promoted on our website in advance of the convention; it'll also be published in the conbook and on our schedule, as well as featured on our FEN video screen throughout the convention.

We can also provide most other resources you may need, such as a laptop and projector, whiteboard, and more... just ask us!

Programming submissions can be done through the Events page -- just fill out the form. Submissions must be received by February 15, 2013!

Apply For The Art Show!

Attention artists!

There is still space available in the inaugural Furnal Equinox Art Show! For the first time, we're offering the opportunity for artists and exhibitors to show off the best of their work to our attendees. They can then bid on it, and potentially take it home with them.

If you're considering applying for the Art Show and haven't yet, here's some things you might want to know:

  • We've done everything we can to make the job of selling easy. All you have to do is bring the artwork you want to sell, fill out bid sheets, and remove unsold artwork at the end of the con — we'll do the rest!
  • You don't have to be attending the convention to participate! You can designate an agent who will be attending the con who can sell your work on your behalf.
  • Furnal Equinox charges no commissions or administration fees on sales. You walk away with all of your sales at the end of the con!

So apply on our website on the Art Show page, but don't delay — online signups will close on February 13, 2013!
