Get Ready All Footy Fic Writers, Artists, Mixers, Etc. – It’s Futbal Mini-Bang Round 3!

17 Jan

ZrBra3zJust in time to cure those winter blues, it’s Futbal Mini-Bang Round 3! If you’ve been feeling creative or just have the urge to read some good fic, we’ve got just the thing for you.

Watishista kfunk22 and I will once again be modding. The last two rounds were fabulous so I expect nothing less this time. We’re changing things up, so here are the basics but please read the full guidelines here.

Here’s how it works:

futbal_minibang is an exchange in which authors and artists are paired up to create a multimedia fanwork over the course of a two-month period. Authors are asked to write a 3,000 word (min) fic of their choosing. They will be paired with an artist, who will create content to accompany their fic.

Once complete, all works will be linked at this community for our eager consumption!

Between January 17 and January 24, 2015, we’ll ask authors to complete a sign-up form, which we’ll provide a link to in our next post. Authors are committing to writing a 3,000 word (min) fic of their choosing..

Anonymous summaries of the fics will then be provided in a separate sign-up post for artists, who will be asked to choose 3 fics they would like to work on, in order of preference. Pairings will then be made as best we’re able.

Artists is a broad term for participants willing to create: ART, COMICS, GIFSETS, VIDS, GRAPHICS (PHOTOMANIPS, ICONS, BANNERS), MIXES (8 TRACK MIN, WITH COVER ART), PODFICS, CRAFTS (PUPPETS, LEGO INSTALLATIONS, DIORAMAS?).

Authors will send finished, formatted and beta’d copies of their fic to their artist by February 28. Artists will be given two weeks to complete their assignments.

All materials are due in complete, ready-to-post format by March 14.

Fanworks will be posted to the community starting March 15.

Schedule:

January 17 – January 24 – AUTHOR SIGN-UPS
January 25 – February 1 – ARTIST SIGN-UPS
February 2 – PAIRINGS SENT OUT
February 15 – AUTHOR CHECK-INS, LAST DAY TO DEFAULT
February 28 – FICS DUE TO ARTISTS
March 14 – COMPLETE FANWORKS DUE – FIC&ART.
March 15 – POSTING BEGINS AT THE FUTBAL MINI-BANG LIVEJOURNAL COMMUNITY

After posting is complete, we’ll throw together a masterlist of all works created for the fest and spread the word.

Please feel free to contact us at futbalminibang@gmail.com with any questions or concerns.

Sign ups are now open. Head on over and sign up!

Endless thanks to the marvelous grailytoast for our awesome new banner.

Looking forward to seeing what everyone comes up with!
