First pick of tables for Furry Weekend Atlanta 2006 will be given to dealers that attended the 2005 convention. General dealer registration will begin September 15th, 2006. At that time, table reservations will be handled on a first come, first served basis. There is a limit of three tables per vendor unless special accommodations have been arranged with Furry Weekend Atlanta. After all available tables are gone, a waiting list will be established. Electricity, telephone, high-speed internet, and wall space are available in the Dealers' Den, however we will need to know in advance if you need these. If you have any questions, please contact email@example.com.
Can't afford a table in the Dealer's Den? You can exhibit and sell your artwork, stories, or other creations in the Artists' Alley. Remember that table space in the Artists' Alley is limited, however, and tables are available strictly on a first-come, first-served basis EACH DAY. To be guaranteed a table, please reserve space in the Dealer's Den.
The Art Show is now accepting submissions. The Art Show features an area for general artwork as well as a separate area for mature artwork not viewable by minors. Artwork is sold by written bid, with pieces receiving five or more bids automatically going to voice auction. The auction will take place on the Sunday of the convention, February 19, 2006.
Even if you cannot attend the con, we will still accept your mailed-in submissions. The deadline for submissions for the Furry Weekend Atlanta 2006 Art Show will be February 3rd, 2006. Any pieces being mailed must be received by February 10th, 2006.
Furry Weekend Atlanta will take a 10% commission from the sale of your piece as it's fee for acting as sales agent. The artist will also have the option of retaining profits from the sale, donating the profits to charity, or donating the profits to Furry Weekend Atlanta.
