To start submitting your works to the con, you just need to create an account.
Send your fanfic, fanart, podfic, and other fanworks to our digital con zine! All genres, themes, and pairings accepted. You do not have to be registered for the con to submit to the zine.
All zine submissions are due on or before October 4th.
Vidshows will be available for streaming on the FanWorks website throughout the con weekend. Watch in real-time with other virtual con attendees, or stream anytime after the vidshow goes live. If you miss any vidshows during the con weekend, all streaming shows will be available for at least two months after the con ends.
Submissions will open September 13th for all vidder-submitted shows, but please read on for more information on specific vidshows and their deadlines.
Most shows are open to submissions from both attending and non-attending vidders, although priority is given to attending vidders if time limits are reached. We recommend using the most recent version of LlamaEnc to encode your vid submissions, but if you run into any problems or if LlamaEnc doesn’t work on your system, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can provide assistance!
The Premieres show is the highlight of the video track at FanWorks! Vids sent to this show must not have been released anywhere previously - at other cons, as online posts, or to any audience larger than your betas / cheerleaders. Premieres is all-new, with every vid making its debut to the con audience.
Deadline is Sunday, September 5th.
Vids for non-premiering vidshows will be due on August 15th.
Any vid released since last year's con (October 2020) is eligible for this vidshow. Show us what you've been working on this year!
Any vid previously released at any point in time is eligible for this vidshow. How you choose is up to you! Is there a vid you've always wanted to show to a captive audience? Is there a vid you love watching with company? You can send in anything you like (so long as you made it!).
This year's open submissions themed show is "Comfort Blanket." Which of your vids give you the most warm fuzzies? Which do you go back to when you need something comforting to watch?
What vids you find comforting may differ from what other people find comforting, and that's fine! There aren't any restrictions on content or tone. When VJing the show, we'll try to split up the vids by comfort type, rather than alternating soft kitten warm fuzzies with murder warm fuzzies (for example), so don't hesitate to send in whatever you feel fits this theme.
All vids for themed vidshows will be chosen by VJs. You are welcome to suggest vids for a show (your own or others’), or even offer to make a premiere, but all themed vidshow submissions must be requested by the show’s VJ. If you have been asked by a VJ to submit a vid for a themed show, the deadline for themed vidshows submissions is Sunday, August 15th.
All fanworks submitted to the con zine and vidshows will be required to be submitted either with standard content notes provided or the option to "choose not to give content notes."
The con's standard content notes are:
