T-Shirt Contest
As is our customary practice, we're offering a special award to the winner of our t-shirt contest. This year, it will be a full-fledged Patron membership to Morphicon 2009! All you have to do is submit a high-resolution line-art image to The deadline is January 31, 2009, so don't delay.
Submissions should be related to the theme, “Inner City Critters ". You may interpret the theme how ever you wish, but please limit submissions to all-audiences appropriate content. Even if you don't win, we'll put your submission into our conbook, so either way you'll get to see your work in print.
We're also interested in seeing original prose, poetry, and other artwork around the “Inner City Critters " theme, just for our conbook. If your work doesn't fit the t-shirt contest (because it's not artwork, or wouldn't look good on a shirt, or it’ss grayscale rather than line art) then you can submit it directly to publications staff for possible inclusion in the conbook.
Hotel Info
We will still be located at the same physical address at the Columbus-Worthington Holiday Inn 7007 N. High St., Columbus, OH 43085. Room block information and early booking rates are posted on the web site at This year a member of our registration staff is working at the hotel, and we will be taking room reservation codes to help ensure that the Morphicon rooms are blocked together as contiguously as possible.

Every year we have a silent charity auction at the convention, if you’d like to donate an item to be auctioned off please send an e-mail to We will also be accepting items during the course of the convention.
