Hello dear furries,

Welcome to our seventh newsletter. I think we again have some interesting news for you.

Statistics Just as a short update and in addition to the statistics shown on our website: Right now we have 97 registrations for NordicFuzzCon 2013. Of these 38 are sponsors and 44 have told us that they will be fursuiting during the convention. Lets see how long we will need to crack the number of 100 attendees. Thanks for all of your confidence in us!

Acoustic Armageddon We are very pleased to annouce that the Acoustic Armageddon team from the UK around Ceilfox is providing the sound and light for our dance events and the main stage. You have never heard of them? Well ... they deliver the untz-untz to most furry events in the UK like Scotiacon, Frantic Eufuria and even Confuzzled. So be prepared ... we have warned you

DealersDen and ArtShow We have seen that some of you are intersted in selling things during NordicFuzzCon 2013. We are pleased to announce that we will offer both a DealersDen and an ArtShow to do so. If you are interested in a table in the DealersDen please contact dealersden@nordicfuzzcon.org as soon as possible with some information. We would need to know what you want to sell and if you have any needs. We will most likely not be able to give a table on-location when you have not been in contact with us before. So please send us this info. If you want to submit artwork into the NFC ArtShow please also contact us at dealersden@nordicfuzzcon.org soon'ish so that we know how much space we will need. All pieces submitted into the ArtShow will go into a silent auction first and then later (if needed) into a live auction. The artist can also opt to donate a certain percentage of the price to our charity.

Charity Auction If you want to support our charity (http://www.nordicfuzzcon.org/Home/Charity) you can also submit pieces of art into the charity auction. These submissions will be presented in a special section of the ArtShow first and then offered in a live auction with 100% going into charity. For submissions into the charity auction or if you have any questions about the process please contact charity@nordicfuzzcon.org

Travelling by train The Swedish SJ (the one running most train services in Sweden) will open the sales for discounted ticket prices 90 days before the trip. So if you want to travel to NordicFuzzCon by train the first week of January would be a good time to book train tickets as then the cheapest ones will be available. After that the prices will slowly go up again when more and more tickets are sold.

In case you are "attending only" If you have not booked any room in the convention hotel through our booking system you will have to leave hotel premises after the end of the last event. That will be somewhen after the end of the last dance around 2AM or 3AM in the morning. Staying in a hotel room of another attendee, without having paid for it, is considered "ghosting" and will get both of you immediatly expelled from the convention. So please: If you want to stay at the convention 24hours a day you have to book a slot in the hotel. This can easily be done by sending a message to the registration team through your "my account" page after you have logged in.

Christmas Raffle Until the 24th of December at noon our christmas raffle on FurAffinity (http://www.furaffinity.net/journal/4083154/) is open for entries. Just by posting a journal on FA you get the chance to win a standard ticket for NordicFuzzCon or get the one you already bought refunded ... so why not give it a try???

10 different countries So far we have attendees from 10 different countries registered for NordicFuzzCon 2013. But we are still missing some of the larger communities ... hey ... where are you out there??? We miss you and you would miss a great event!

Conbook art submissions Given the interest in NordicFuzzCon and the number of attendees we've gotten so far, we've decided to increase the page count of the conbook, as well as increasing its size from A5 to A4. That means we will have even more room for your wonderful art! We have also modified the guidelines for art submissions slightly. Submissions should be in CMYK color, with a 300 DPI resolution. For a full page piece, the size should be A4 (2500 px X 3500 px), and smaller pictures should be at least 1000 px X 1000 px. Artwork should be submitted as either uncompressed JPEG or PNG. For vector based art, we also accept PDF. Submissions can be sent to conbook@nordicfuzzcon.org Please see ttp://nordicfuzzcon.org/Home/Conbook for more information. Remember, the deadline for art submissions is February 1st 2013! But the sooner the better. Please direct any questions you might have to the e-mail address above, and we will get back to you as soon as we're able.

Images for your badges We are still missing a lot of images for the conbadges/fursuitbadges. Do you really want to run around with just an empty box on your badge? We dont think so. So please dont forget to upload your images on our webpage.

100% NFC 2013 We are also pleased to announce that with the registration numbers we have now NordicFuzzCon 2013 is financially possible and will take place for sure. So now would be the right time to start thinking about travelling!

Panels for NFC 2013 if you want to run a panel during NordicFuzzCon 2013 you can just go on to the "my account" page and add that information there. We will then contact you to get more details. But you would make our life a lot easier by already adding some information on the website so we know roughly what you want to do.

Your NFC team
