How do I know what I'm making art for?
After the writers have their mandatory check-in on July 15th, we'll make a claims post listing fandoms and pairings. In this post, we'll also include the story summary and any warnings the author gives. You can choose which fic you'd like to create art for, and then that person's fic will get crossed off the list. Author's names will not be attached to their fanfics on this post; the artist's claims will be done blind that way. This is done to even the playing field, so that an artist may claim a fanfic based on the summary/pairing/fandom, rather than the popularity of the writer. (Though by no means is the author prohibited at any point from telling people which fandom/pairing/story is theirs. I imagine that in any case, we'll be able to have a great number of educated guesses for authors based on the pairing/fandom alone. That's fine. I'm just trying to make the artist' claims post less about favoring popular authors, and more about showcasing the merits of the story.)


What are the requirements for art?
You can make whatever kind of art you feel like, in whichever medium. Drawing, painting, digital, manips, vids, fanmix, anything you can think of. We just ask that you put some time into it, as our authors have put major effort into their story. You are required to make a minimum of ONE piece of art for the story you claim. MORE IS BETTER. We love more! We want more! But, based on feedback from last year’s artists, we only have a requirement of one piece of artwork.

Make it nice, put some effort into it!


How do I sign up and/or claim an artwork?
You can sign up to be an artist now, but claims will happen much later, on July 20th, after writers have had their mandatory check in. Claims are done on a first come, first serve basis. We will be putting up a members-locked post and the artists will reply to it with the story they claim to do art for (so make sure you are a member of the community!).

Sign ups for artists will remain open until all fanfics get claimed!


What happens if the number of authors doesn't match up with the number of artists or mixers?
We will do several rounds of claiming so that EVERY fic has an artist. In the event that fics outnumber artists, we will allow artists to make a second claim.


Can I have contact with my author?
We will provide you with contact information once you have committed to an author. From there, you can contact them to find out more about their interests. We would like to encourage you to be in contact with them and to share and collaborate, but ONLY in fun. You are under no obligation to work directly with the author. Ultimately, what you create for your artwork is your creation, just like how you cannot dictate what the author writes for their fanfiction. But we all want everyone to be happy with what they get and what they create, so I hope this remains a happy, fun, friendly experience.

Also, if your writer does not complete his/her story by the due date, but you've completed your artwork, go ahead and submit it and I'll showcase it on AO3 anyway. You deserve recognition for your hard work!

What if I cannot create the fanart by the deadline?
Think very, very hard before claiming a story! Because there is a person who is expecting some fanart for their work and I'll have to hunt down a back-up artist to take your place, if you end up dropping out. If you can't create the fanworks, tell me as soon as humanly possible. I want everything to go live at once, on August 31st. Finding artists is hard enough with a decent timeline, but finding backups are a nightmare, so for this reason, if an artist drops out at the last second (within the last 10 days of the deadline), then they will be banned from participating in future bang challenges here.

Avengers, Marvel movieverse, Lost, Chuck, Doctor Who (new!Who), BSG, Fringe, Firefly, Dollhouse, Arrested Development, Harry Potter, Community, The Office, Pushing Daisies, Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, Star Trek (reboot), Burn Notice, Game of Thrones, Veronica Mara, Grey's Anatomy, Better Off Ted, Castle, Muppets, Pride & Prejudice (Keira Knightley version), Disney/Pixar, HIMYM, X-Men movieverse, Bourne movies, Once Upon A Time, Revenge, Princess Bride, Friends, Skyfall (Daniel Craig Bond movies), Alias... a whole pile more movies and probably more shows that I'm forgetting. I'm up for doing pretty well any het pairing (barring these exceptions: Draco/Hermione, Snape/Hermione, Alex/Izzie, Jayne/River - sorry, just can't) and I'm willing, if needed, to make art for some fandoms I'm less familiar with (though I can't really make art for fandoms I don't know at all) - like NCIS, New Girl, and more. I also love me a good, clever crossover. :D I plan to do a bunch, so I guess it'll just be whatever catches my fancy.
