ETA: Even if the story you supply us is a rough draft, it needs to have the header information (summary, approximate word count, etc) because we're going to be supplying this information to the artists! Thank you, and sorry I forgot to mention it sooner!
And now - artist signups!
I have created a community: sgagen_art. If you are interested in doing art for the Genficathon, please go and join that community. Membership is moderated and I won't be approving people quite yet, but that's where the story claiming will happen.
leesa_perrie has graciously volunteered to run the story claiming. It will be similar to the way that story claiming for the SGA Big Bang has worked in the past, if you've ever done that -- you will get to pick from a list of (anonymous) story descriptions. (Though obviously they will be quite a lot shorter than the Big Bang stories!) I'll have more detailed instructions at the sgagen_art community later in the week.
Story claiming will open on Saturday, May 7, at 2 p.m. USA Eastern Time (7-8 p.m. in Western Europe). This is tentative and will depend on how many artists have schedule conflicts. If we need, we can either change the time or open a second round of story claiming at a different time to accommodate artists in other time zones.
You will be signing up to complete at least one piece of art (you can do more, but one is guaranteed). Any kind of art is fine - manips, wallpapers, title graphics/covers, hand-drawn illustrations, etc ... you can even make a vid if you want! Your art will be due on June 11, though of course you can always turn it in earlier.
Questions, problems, issues? Please ask! You can either comment here or email sga.genficathon at gmail.com.
