I'm just waiting for confirmation of a few details from the hotel. My hope is that it will be open by early November. Apologies for the delay.

Dealers Den & Art Auction / Dealer registration delayed

Hi all,
Dealer registration has been delayed this year, as we will be moving in to a larger room for 2013. We are currently in the process of working out how many tables we will have next year and I will post an update here before we open registration.

Art collection - Was insane TBH there was only 1 till running? what happened to the 2 or 3 in previous years? it really slowed down processing time. Not much else to say just hope it gets sorted next year
We've always only had the one till as, for most of the con, a second one has been hard to justify. I am going to be looking at getting a second, but it depends on getting enough people to register so we can afford it (hint, hint)
Art Auction - ban 1 pound bids its annoying. also its unfair that art going into the charity auction has no percent going to charity.... if your not going to give anything personally I dont think it deserves to make the auction regardless of how nice the art is
Again, I'll be looking at both of these issues. We didn't actually get that much higher a percentage of items being submitted to the art show with 0%, it was just that there were more items in general and more of the 0% items got through to the live auction than normal creating a perception that a lot of submissions had nothing for charity. Both of these issues played a part in slowing the live auction down significantly, so I'll be looking to find a way of solving them that's fair to everyone, including the artists.

Hi Camille,
Fursuit items are allowed in to the auction. Just bring them along to the art show on Friday and the art show staff will help you fill out the relevant forms.

Hi Danza,
Those would be ok as they're not direct copies of the original characters, but are an homage. The issue, as we understand it, only arrises if you try to sell images that are identical to the original, as in my 'Puss in Boots' example above.
Also, we wouldn't automatically bar you from the con for trying to sell copyrighted items, we'd just refuse the submission, in the auctions case, or ask you to remove it from sale in the Dealers' Den. We'd only consider taking it further if you continued trying to sell it after we'd told you not to. Hope that reassures you :)

3D stuff is fine, as there'll be tables available for that sort of item anyway :)

Hi Amethyst,
Most artwork is hung on Gridwall panels, though if we runout of space on the panels we then use tables.

We prefer artwork to be framed, as this protects the art better, though clip frames do have a tendency to come apart because of the types of hook we have to use on the Gridwall, so more traditional frames are better.

Hi Amethyst
The Art Show is not live bidding, its pre-bidding. If items get enough bids in pre-bidding then they go through to the live auction on Sunday evening. If they don't get enough bids for the live auction they sell for whatever the highest bid is when the Art Show closes on the Sunday (You choose a minimum bid when you submit the item). The Sponsor early entry is just an extra benefit for sponsors where they get to have the first look, before the room gets too crowded, though they can still bid.

As far as the copyrighted characters goes, as long as it's an homage and not a direct copy then that would be ok. For example, drawing your own interpretation of what Puss in Boots should look like should be fine, drawing the Dreamworks version of him and selling it, on the other hand, would not be.

Hope that helps :)

Hi Mr Fitzpatrick
Unfortunately it is now too late to choose a room share, as the reg system has been locked down for residential changes since Thursday and the room sharing details have already been completed.
