    FAQ


    ✦ What is a zine?

    A zine (or fanzine) is a self-published book usually dedicated to a specific form of media, collaborative or otherwise.

    ✦ How do I apply and what are the requirements?

    Artist applications will be available at on June 15th. Artists must be over the age of 13 and provide 3-5 finished artworks in a portfolio (links to Drive folders, websites or social medias are all acceptable as portfolios). All levels of style and skill are welcome! Links to active social media are required (SFW links are preferred but not mandatory).

    ✦ What should I do for my piece?

    Anything (within reason)! Any form of media (3D, digital, clay, traditional, custom Furbies, etc.) is welcome and encouraged. Tributes to the Furby fandom, LongFurbies, dedications to 90's-00's culture, OCs and fanlore, references to memes, and more are all welcome expressions of Furby appreciation!

    ✦ When can I post/sell my piece?

    Artists can post their piece after preorders end and can sell their piece after the last zine has been mailed. As a courtesy we ask that artists refrain from posting their piece until the project is complete!

    ✦ Who's the Furby on the homepage?

    The zine mascot Pinwheel!
