A call to action from one of vysila
's supporting elves, who stole her icon temporarily :)
As you've all noticed, our fandom's biggest yearly event, the Down the Chimney Affair is now open for it's 12th year
. Author sign-ups have started.We want our wonderful MFU artists to get involved too!
We've always had more writers than artists in the fandom, and haven't been able to find a practical way to make the story exchange all inclusive. But we want DtCA to be for everyone and are trying something new this year. We've got some suggestions and we need your input for more.
1. As vysila mentioned, we'd love to have icons and banners to promote DtCA. We're open to both the series and the new film
and we'd like our promo material to reflect that. All contributions gladly accepted and used.
2. Aside from promo material, we'd love to have a challenge that's fun for artists and ties into DtCA.
One possible example: a muncle
countdown to the story reveal on Dec 25th (based on a theme perhaps) where each participating artists gets their own day to shine--or more than one day if you have the time and energy.
Please give us your ideas, we're open to anything that will let you participate in Down the Chimney. And the categories in the headline aren't exclusive. Got something else you want to do? Chime in!
