Join the Conbook !

This year, the FBL is preparing a book for the convention: the famous “conbook”, essential object for your survival during the event, with the schedules, the program, the presentation of the activities, nice organizers and many useful things to make you life at least 20% cooler.

You want to contribute? Here’s how it goes!

HOW TO: ILLUSTRATE THE CONBOOK

You are a young beginner artist or an old illustrator confirmed (or in between, or a mix of both… in short: you draw) and you want to embellish, punctuate, complete the conbook with a nice drawing of your paw?

Write today to rimoufurry@gmail.com with the following information:

  • First Name / Last Name*
  • Date of Birth*
  • Your artist name / Furry name
  • A link to an online gallery
  • OR some examples of drawings you have made (JPG, PNG or PDF only)

You have until July 20, 2019 at 23:59 to apply.

We will contact you as soon as possible to tell you what’s next. In any case :

  • Either your application is selected and then we propose a theme of the conbook to illustrate (fursuit dance, video games, restoration). The deadline for rendering your illustration will be August 30th at 11:59 pm.
  • Either the places are already full and we can only thank you for your interest in our proposal. It is possible that all places are filled after a few days, so be fast! 😊

Here are the technical details that will serve you in your task if (and only if) your request receives a favorable response from our team:

  • The illustration must be rendered in uncompressed JPG format or PNG format.
  • This will be an illustration for the inside of the conbook (excluding cover).
  • The conbook is printed in color, take advantage of it to put beautiful colors on your picture!
  • The ideal format is A4-portrait with an extra margin of 3 mm all-around for a full-page illustration (so your drawing will have to cover this area by 3 mm in addition).
  • Digital format with 300 dpi resolution required.
  • A4-portrait format = 21×29.7cm = 2551x3578px (equivalent to 300dpi) including overflow of 3 mm.
  • Your image should be classified at the maximum “forbidden under 12 years” (equivalent to the PG-13 classification in the USA). More details on Wikipédia.
  • This can be a full-page illustration or an illustration called “cut” (PNG format with transparency required in this case).

IMPORTANT: In a concern of time and capacity, we will not be able to clean the files of image which will be considered improper or non-publishable in the state (defect of scanner, rough cuts of the image, too garish colors, etc.). We reserve the right to return your project to you for a graphic cleaning and/or a modification of your image by your own means if it seems necessary to us.

HOW TO: PUBLISH AN ANNOUNCEMENT
