CONBOOK

As every year, we will have a Conbook which will guide you through the convention and its events. It will work as a map but it’s also a souvenir which will remind you of the days spent together with the others participants.

Are you an artist and do you want to see your drawing published in the event book? Not everyone knows that it’s possible to contribute to the creation of the conbook with your own images. Not only  you will help us to improve the visual experience of the participants but also to improve the whole event!

DEADLINE

All finished contributions need to be submitted before 15 April 2022.

WHERE DO I SEND THE FILE?

Form closed.

REQUIREMENTS FOR SUBMISSIONS

  • Color illustrations are preferred! Please use CMYK color model.
  • Only SFW artwork allowed.
  • The format for full page illustrations is A4, upright (210 x 297mm) plus 3mm cropping area along all edges, adding up to a total of 216 x 303 mm or 2551 x 3578 pixels at 300 dpi.
  • File format should be JPG set to highest quality (low information loss). PNG, PDF or PSD are acceptable too but may cause issues due to the resulting file size.
  • For a full page illustration, do not draw anything important into the cropping area. Please avoid symmetrical motifs or motifs that rely on exact cutting of the page – for technical reasons, the cropping of the finished book may occur anywhere in the cropping area of each page.
  • Fillers that do not have an illustrated background (extracted cutouts) need to have a fully transparent image background, since the pages themselves will have their own color background. The foreground needs to be intransparent (opaque). Be careful about holes in the foreground (transparent) and white foreground elements (opaque)!
SOME TIPS
  1. You don’t have to go big: we are looking for full page illustrations as well as smaller fillers.
  2. If black is a primary colour in the art, avoid using pure black (C:0, M:0, Y:0, K:100): use rich black instead (C:20, M:0, Y:0, K:100).
  3. Think about white space. Artwork can be used to put text in!

If your artwork doesn’t get featured in the conbook itself, we will try our best to always include it in the various media across the convention (e.g. banners, dance visuals ect.).

Please provide following information along with your submission:

  • Artist Name;
  • Short Artist Description;
  • Main gallery link;
  • Profile picture of 500x500px (either showing your character or something you like or identify with).

CONBOOK FAQ

What should my art be of?

All submissions should reflect the convention’s theme.

Do I have to attend the convention to submit art for the conbook?

It is not strictly necessary even if we are happy to have your presence.

Does my artwork have to feature the event mascots?

Submissions do not have to feature the event mascots, it can be your own fursona or a friend’s.

Can I submit more than one piece?

Yes, of course!

Do you accept NSFW or violent art?

We do not accept NSFW art. Light nudity might be accepted.
Playful cartoon violence is fine, but more graphic and realistic gore isn’t.

Send us an e-mail if you are unsure.

Am I free to post my submitted artwork elsewhere?

Yes, you can post your work! You don’t have to wait until the convention starts, let people know that you are contributing to the convention.
