Conbook submission deadline: April 15, 2018, 11:59:59pm PDT
Every year we produce our own custom-themed conbook containing all you need to know about the convention, our hotel, and our program of events. Given out to each and every attendee, our conbooks are works of art that keep you informed during your time in Furlandia and serve as mementos long after the con has ended.
It's no surprise, then, that we like to use our conbook to showcase some of the very best in original artwork, stories, and poems created by and for attendees of Furlandia! This is why we look forward each year to submissions from people like you to help make Furlandia's conbook so special.
That's also why we're excited to invite you to submit your own creations for consideration to be included in the Furlandia 1957: Poodle Skirts and Duck Tails! conbook. To give everyone a fair chance and to ensure your creations look good in print, we've come up with some basic requirements listed below that your submissions will need to meet. Please make sure you understand these requirements before you send your submissions as we may not be able to include artwork or written material which does not meet the requirements below.
Please also note that while we will try to publish as many submissions as possible in this year's conbook, final selection for inclusion in the conbook will be at the discretion of the publishing team and Furlandia's executive team. Submissions of a high enough quality that fail to make it into the conbook may, at Furlandia's discretion, be shared on our website and on social media sites attached to Furlandia.
