Contest Q &A

 

Q: Should I include the FWA Logo in my art?

A: No, we just wanna see your furry take on a gaming poster!

Q: I’m in the Dealers Den/Artist Alley. Can I make prints and sell my submission at the convention?

A: Yes! Our intent is not to prevent you from using your art, we’d just like to feature it too!

Q: Will all submissions be printed?

A: Sadly, no. A panel of judges will select the top three winners. Some of the finalists may see their work printed as well, however!

Q: Should I keep my entry hidden?

A: No way! Show them off, but make sure to send them in by March 1st!

Q: Can I use anthro characters who already exist in games?

A:  We would like to see your unique twist. Try turning a human character into an anthro instead!
