THE NEW NAME!

Postby Treemeadow » Fri Jan 11, 2013 7:18 pm

Here it is, folk-

The moment we've all been anticipating since December.

Australian Fandom Conventions is PROUD to present: The BRAND new name of Australia's first furry convention-

Selected from over 600 entries!

The name of our new...con...is

*drumroll*



CONFURGENCE!!!


*fanfare* *cheers*

THAT'S RIGHT, furbies and gentlefolk, coming your way in January 2014 is ConFurgence: Egyptian Nights!


This name was suggested by quite a number of people. However, as promised- the prize of a LIFETIMES MEMBERSHIP will go to the FIRST person who made the suggestion:

That person is:

KEVIN from South Australia! (sorry mate, didn't have your fur name) (Don't worry, we email'd ya)

ROUND OF APPLAUSE TO KEVIN!

*wwwwoooooooooooottt*

Now, Kevin wasn't the only person to suggest the name ConFurgence, and even though we made it clear that the grand prize went to the first suggestor- and the first suggestor only- we didn't feel right letting the others go without *something* for their effort, especially since they, too, thought of the con's new name.

Congratulations guys, you've won yourselves a 50% REGO to the first ever ConFurgence in 2014! Yep. ConFurgence will pay for half of your registration!

(The other submitters of the name ConFurgence will be contacted tomorrow, and we'll announce them shortly after.)

Well! Now that we know the name, it's time to check out the website!

http://www.confurgence.com

Easy to remember!


...and speaking of remembering, let's think back to our wonderful charity for 2012, the DIngo Discovery Center.


You may remember the sad tale of the dingo pups who passed away during MiDFur 2012. It made our hearts heavy and spurred us on to raise even more money for the DIngo Discovery Center, especially their surviving little hero- Flash.

Well, in the spirit of this pup's will to survive, we've decided to make our NEW ConFurgence mascot a Dingo!

*howl for the dingo!

annnndd

With the permission of the DIngo Discovery Center, we on the board unanimously agreed to name our new mascot after the little survivor himself, Flash!

Check out our photo's page for the first of many concept sketches and some pics of our buddy Flash!



So, it is with greatest joy and pleasure that we, the ConFurgence board, introduce you to YOUR con, name developed not only by one member of your community- but quite a few! ConFurgence came from South Australia, Sydney, Brisbane and even Perth! A name that suits our con perfectly!

The team looks forward to when we all converge on Melbourne in January 2014, for ConFurgence: Egyptian Nights! It's the same con, same spirit, awesome NEW NAME and plenty of awesome furries to share it with!

Cheers all,

The ConFurgence Team

It might have gotten lost on the fb page, but I made three different concepts for a logo/mascot. http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid= ... 2706512518
