Welcome to the JemCon 2017 Fan-Fiction Contest. We have an opportunity for you to put your creativity to the test!
This year's fanfic contest will be open from July 5th, 2017 to September 4th, 2017.
For reference the current JemCon date is January 20th, 2018.
JemCon has been held in a lot of places! And this year, we're getting ready to rock out in Seattle, a city famous for its music scene! What better way to commemorate JemCon 2017 than with a JemCon World Tour Concert Souvenir T-Shirt! For the first time ever, we're including a T-Shirt for YOU in our registration and supporting membership packages! And we want to use your design on our shirts!
Seattle is known for two things - rainy weather and great coffee! In the spirit of our 2017 host city, we're calling this year's fashion contest "Rain 'n Shine!" We want you to "espresso" yourself and design something no Jem doll has ever had before - outrageous rainwear! After practicing for their next big show, Jem and her friends head down to that ultra hip coffee shop, Starlights, for macchiatos and flat whites. And of course they're making a splash in both the headlines and the puddles! Think wild raincoats, stunnin' slickers, glittery galoshes, and clashin' capelets. No decaf designs please! Be bold! And did we mention we're including a custom coordinated, doll-sized coffee cup with the produced fashion? Once you have your fashion design brewed to perfection, submit it to JemCon using our official template. There's sure to be a "latte" competition, so don't be left out in the rain! .
Entries must be received by February 24th and submitted on the official template available at jemcon.org. They will be reviewed for originality, creativity and practicality for custom production. Finalists will be posted on jemcon.org for voting to take place shortly thereafter! The winning fashion designer will receive design credit and their very own custom made fashion, which will also be made available to JemCon 2017 attendees with registration for the 2017 convention.
By entering the contest you grant JemCon and all associated parties an indefinite, nontransferable license to use your design and derivatives of your design for promotional and fundrasing purposes associated with JemCon. You understand that the winning design will have a limited edition fashion produced adapted from the submitted design and that this will be used as a promotional item for JemCon.
Each person is allowed two entries. Both entries must be submitted together.
JemCon is pleased to announce Sir Ari Gold as a Special Guest at JemCon 2016 "Up 'n Rockin' in Upstate New York." Ari, also known to Jem fans as the singing voice of Ba Nee, was already a Jem fan himself when he landed the dream job of singing on the cartoon.
