The BlurrieCon 2016 tentative schedule of programming, panels, and events is now available online! We have made this schedule as complete and up-to-date as possible at the time of release; however, please remember that all conventions, ours included, may encounter last-minute additions, changes, or cancellations. This schedule has been updated as of 10/10/16. A fully up-to-date schedule will be available at the convention.
The convention is getting nearer but pre-registration is still open! Pre-registration saves you money and guarantees you a badge at the con, so don't delay, pre-register today at blurriecon4.eventbrite.com.
For 2016, BlurrieCon has secured a discounted room block at the Courtyard by Marriott. This block is open until September 23, 2016, and registration is online. Click here to register in the BlurrieCon block at the Courtyard by Marriott.
Attention artists: Do you want to have your art featured at our con? We are hosting multiple contests to find the perfect art for our badges, program cover, and shirts. Our theme this year is "Sci-fi". Feel free to enter more than one contest.
Our cover is a double contest this year! First, we need a nice, bold, line art featuring our mascot and theme- then we are hosting an at-con coloring contest. That's right, the attendees get to color their own cover however they want! What we need for the contest is a fully inked, but uncolored artwork. The final dimensions will be 8.5''x5.5'' (half sheet of printer paper). Make sure your design will fit in these dimensions with room for our logo.
We need three full color artworks for our badges: senpai (over 18), kohai (under 18), and staff. Incorporate our mascot and the theme but feel free to add other characters and elements too! The final badge dimensions are 2.5''x3.5''.
We are looking for art to be featured on this year's shirts! Keep the art simple with bold lines and limited colors to allow for the screen printing process. Include the theme and mascot. The rest is up to you!
Do you have ideas or art that you don't think will work for the T-shirts, badges, or program cover? Send it anyway! The final word is up to our judges, and any art we don't use for our T-shirt, badges, or program cover will be art we can use to decorate the inner pages of our 2016 program. Wouldn't it be great if our program could feature all the best fanartists of the BlurrieCon community? So don't hesitate to draw something, and send it in. Please send all your entries to our BlurrieCon general email at firstname.lastname@example.org
ERIE, PA - The Blurrie Image Galleries are open!
