FURRY WEEKEND ATLANTA ART CONTEST DEADLINE EXTENDED
At the request of a number of potential submitters, we have extended the deadline for the Art Contest to November 30, 2004. Want a chance to see your work all over the place AND receive a free God-Level membership to Furry Weekend Atlanta 2005? Now you can by designing artwork for the convention and submitting it to the Artwork Contest! The winning logo will grace the cover of our Convention Book, T-Shirts, Signs and Website for the next year, and the winning artist will receive a free God-Level membership to Furry Weekend Atlanta 2005!
Most of the artwork submitted to the contest is used and usually finds it's way into our convention book. Hurry up and enter soon, though. The deadline is November 30, 2004! Visit our Art Contest page for further details.
FWA CONVENTION BOOK SEEKING SUBMISSIONS
Information about the FWA 2005 Convention Book is now available at our website. All artists and writers are invited to submit items for publication in the convention book. Submission guidelines and a release form is available at our website. Aaand ... one submitter will be randomly selected from all entries selected for publication and will receive a free Membership to Furry Weekend Atlanta 2005!
Now is the time to begin thinking about reserving those rooms! The Holiday Inn Atlanta Airport-North is where FWA is going down, and we have negotiated a single / double / triple / quad rate of $62 per night for the convention! Reservations can be made by contacting the hotel directly at 1-404-762-8411. Be sure to request the "FURRY WEEKEND ATLANTA" room rate. Avoid the last-minute rush and reserve your room early!
DEALERS DEN UPDATE
Our Dealers Den is almost sold out! We have a very limited number of tables remaining, and are accepting applications on a first-come, first served basis. If we receive your application but run out of tables, we will institute a waiting list on a first-come, first served basis. This month, Furry Weekend Atlanta is proud to welcome A-Bomb Digital, J3T and StickDevil, Bushycat, and Bill Holbrook to our 2005 Dealers Den!
Our list of programming has again been updated with more items that we are working on. It still represents only a portion of what we have in store for attendees at Furry Weekend Atlanta 2005!
