Convention news is always reason to party down. Or is that par-tay? I can never remember the rules of partiquette. Which I've just been informed is in violation of my contract. So while I go sit down for another optional mandatory hour in Pinkie Pie's Smile Happy Fun Times Reeducation Center, you guys can have the world's finest convention news items, delivered fresh to your door in twenty minutes or your money back.

Bronycon OC Contest Reminder
Hey everyone! Don't forget about the OC Contest that BronyCon is currently running. We are looking for either one or a small group of original characters to represent our convention. Your creation could represent us for years to come! This community has created some awe-inspiring things, so we hope to see more of what we have come to expect from all of you. There are only a few rules to follow: Your submissions must be equines (ponies, zebras, changelings), and we will not be accepting Alicorns. While it is not required, we would also like submissions to be consistent with our new color scheme. The colors are as follows (with RGB / CMYK color codes for you artsy types out there!)

In addition to the obvious benefits of having something you made represent BronyCon you will also receive free admission to BronyCon 2013, and a free upgrade to our highest sponsorship level! Since our dates are not announced yet, this particular ticket will be transferable on the chance you won't be able to make it. We may alter your design as need be to fit the theme and style of future conventions although we may work with the winning artist(s) in the future on this and we make no guarantee to use the winning submissions’ suggested name(s). All submissions are the property of BronyCon (Lunar Solis Corp.) and may be used at our discretion for any present or future initiatives, including but not limited to: marketing, branding, logos, wordmarks, advertisements.
Please send all submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org. You have until Midnight EST on August 31st, 2012 to get your submission in. We will select a group of finalists quickly afterwards, and you, the community, will get to vote on BronyCon’s final OC.

Galacon: Thanks, And Getting Ready for Next Year!
Dear loyal subjects,
we’ve finally recovered properly from Crunch Time. We really wanted to do this press note earlier, but not before we could think straight again - What we have to say is heartfelt and important.
So, better late than never:
Thanks to all guests for giving up so much money and free time just for our little event; thanks to all volunteers and helpers for the sweat and blood they put in behind the scenes; thanks to Julia and Anneli for honoring us with their presence; thanks to SweBow, Mr. Poniator, Icky and Rautakoura for everything they contributed to Galacon and thanks to everyone at and around Everfree Radio!
We are also very pleased to confirm that we raised, in fact, a whopping total of 8,145 euro at the Bronies For Good charity auction. Every single cent is appreciated and goes towards a wonderful cause. Be proud, you achieved a tremendous thing!
Also, we got order from Anneli and Julia themselves to thank you all for the great weekend they had - So: Thank you! They had a wonderful time and we hope you had that with them, too.
Right now, we are going through your feedback and looking into where and how we can improve. One wish could already be fulfilled: We now have a Deviantart group just dying to get all of your Galacon related artwork! We got a lot more stuff cooking, like a ticket design contest for Galacon 2013, some confirmed guests of honor, a completely revamped website and some surprises in cooperation with our pals from BUCK in the United Kingdom and BronyDays in France, but sit tight, we can’t tell more just yet.
Now excuse us, we gotta prepare for 2013 already - But until then: We hope you enjoyed what we did this year, despite all its problems, and we especially hope to see you again in 2013.
your Galacon team
