  • FINAL COUNTDOWN: 5 days to AFAS!!!

    For those of you who didn't see the email....

    I would like to give everyone a formal invite to the fanart awards ceremony of the year...

    THE AFA AWARDS CEREMONY 2013!!!

    That's right, nominations are done, the votes have all been cast, awards created and now it's time for the final countdown to the main event! I want to thank everyone who has helped to bring the ceremony to where it is now, and I can confirm that it WILL be going ahead on Saturday 11th May at the following times:

    Red Carpet:
    19.00 UK / 20.00 EU / 21.00 Romania / 06.00 Oz / 14.00 US EST / 13.00 US CST / 11.00 US PST

    Event Begins:
    20.00 UK / 21.00 EU / 22.00 Romania / 07.00 Oz / 15.00 US EST / 14.00 US CST / 12.00 US PST

    Be sure to come along for the fun and games, and to see those HUNDREDS of awards go out to all the winners! It's going to be a BIG night, and I hope everyone is able to make it along, even if it's not for the whole event, then just to a part of it so you can join in on the fun!

    For those of you who are new to the ceremony, please check out the AFA section of Buffy Forums, there's a place to chat and get to know fellow members, and if you are not a member of the forums you can still check out the ceremony. I do recommend signing up as a member though, it's an amazing community for fanartists and you'll also get to post and squee with the rest of us on the night!

    I realise that this is quite short notice, but I had to go with the majority from the poll created on the forum and Saturday won out... please, please do come along, the event is nothing without you guys there to make it awesome!!!

    I hope to see you all on Saturday night, until then... GOOD LUCK!!!

    *hugs and squishes*

    In addition, you may have noticed that I have added in all of our categories into the relevant sections, and a 'road map to the afas' to keep everyone right on the night!


    Some last minute help..........

    I have been preparing the intros for the categories, but at the moment they pretty much just say 'this is the category, there are x number of walls, and x number of awards' and nothing special, so if you would like to try your hand at writing a fantabulous intro to one or more of the categories please let me know! They can be quirky, humorous, you can design graphics, tell some jokes, give us some tv trivia, or anything you can think of...

    If you think this is something you may be up for, drop me a PM or an email!


    ARE YOU READY FOR THE AFAS?????????????

    You know what's sad? I voted for this specific Saturday because I didn't have anything scheduled and it fit perfectly in between my job and when I start school back up. Well lo and behold I get my schedule today only to find out I'm work a straight 7 days, today through Sunday. And to top it off, it's not a day shift on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday which would've meant I would've been done by 3:30pm and home by 4:30 (ie, just in time for all of the fun AFA stuff) but instead the late shift where I start at 3:00pm and go until 11:30, making my arrival home 12:30 am. The flipping 12th. I'm pretty irritated.

    So I'm just gonna say, have fun at the AFA's this year you guys!

              OMG, me too! What kind of bells? Cow bells, the bells on a collar so we can hear Angel(cats) sneaking up on us, church bells (dude, heavy!), bluebells?

              We should coordinate so we dont wear the same bells!

                        Ugh, I'll try my very best to be online and get there but there's no guarantees unfortunately. Hope everyone has an amazing night though and everyone is a winner!
