The following is a masterlist of the fanworks submitted during the July 2012 fest. It’s arranged in the order that the entries were submitted in. My apologizes for getting this out so late! The list had to take a back seat due to real life obligations.

You don’t need to have a Livejournal account in order to comment as anonymous commenting is enabled. I encourage everyone to check them out and leave some feedback! I’m sure it will brighten the artist’s/writer’s day so don’t be shy! (。・ω・)ノ゙

If you’ve finished your piece for the Nordic Romance Fest, please make sure to post it on our LJ community before posting it elsewhere online! I’ve seen a few of your submissions floating around Tumblr and while I’m not sure if they’re WIPs or not, it’s important for you to post your pieces on our LJ so everything stays organized and it makes it easier for me to keep track of everything. If you’re unsure how to go about posting on LJ, leave a message on our FAQ entry, send us an e-mail or our ask box here on Tumblr and I’ll do my best to help! If you don’t have an LJ or you opted to be anonymous, please send your fanwork to nordicromancefest[@]gmail[.]com. Please also make sure to read the posting guidelines before posting or sending your work over. We haven’t received any submissions yet so if you have submitted something over please send it again!

A few weeks ago it was announced the deadline was changed from July 31st to August 7th. This deadline is still in place so please do not rush with your fanwork! You still have a week and half to go before the fest closes! Another reminder post will be made once we get closer to the closing date.

I hope everyone has been having fun producing their fanwork for the fest! Good luck to everyone who is still working on them!

There’s been some issues of some participants not receiving their prompts. None of the prompts came back as “unsent” so they all should of gone through properly. However most prompts were sent through our old fest e-mail that was later branded as a spam account so my theory is that they were sent to the junk/spam box and were later deleted before participants could check their inboxes. Because of this, I’ve decided to extend the closing date into August so participants who got their prompts late have enough time to produce fanwork. The last date to submit your pieces is now August 7th instead of July 31st so you have an extra week to finish them off! The opening date for posting still remains the same at July 17th which is Tuesday. The guidelines for posting your work will go up on Sunday or Monday.

If you still haven’t received your prompts, please contact me through our fest e-mail, nordicromancefest[@]gmail[.]com ASAP! I don’t want to see people contacting me a week before the closing date! You won’t get them!

I hope everyone is doing well with their prompts! Good luck with your pieces! I’m looking forward to seeing what you’ll produce!

Prompt lists have sent! If you haven't received yours yet, please check your spam/junk box. If it is not there or in your inbox or your e-mail has glitches (AKA did not send properly) then please write to our fest e-mail at nordicromancefest[@]gmail[.]com with your name and contact info so I know who you are.

Something important to mention, we now have a new fest e-mail. During the sending of the prompts last night, Hotmail blocked our fest e-mail for spam. Our new e-mail is nordicromancefest[@]gmail[.]com. If you received your prompt through the old e-mail, DO NOT REPLY. I will not be able to respond back to you. If you have any questions, use the new e-mail or post your question on our FAQ entry or send a message through our Tumblr. Anonymous questions are enabled.

Best of luck with your prompts everyone!

Thank you so much to everyone who entered! Including myself, we have 37 wonderful participants and I can’t wait to see all the great fanwork we’ll all produce!

Prompt lists will go out today but seeing how this is Canada Day, it may not be possible for me to get them out. If that happens to be the case, I will get them out to everyone by Monday the latest!

Welcome to the Nordic Romance Fest!

What is Nordic Romance Fest?

The event is to encourage the creation of fanwork focusing on Nordic/Nordic pairings; including some of the lesser known ones. The goal is also to encourage participants to get creative and try something new through a simple and flexible prompt system! Just about anything goes for this event!

In this event, each person is given a short list with four prompts on it. Participants will choose two out of the four prompts and produce either two pieces of art or two fanfics with a minimum of 500 words.

Guidelines

- This event is open to both artists and writers!
- Signing up is required in order to participate! However submissions can be made anonymously.
- All ratings are welcomed!
- Participants will receive a list with four pairings and four prompts; you must choose at least two to create fanwork for but you can do more if you want!

- Requirements for fanfiction: minimum of 500 words
- Requirements for art: 2 coloured or B&W pictures

How it Works

- Go to the Sign-up post to provide your name and other details.
- Prompt lists will be sent by email. Please refer to the timeline below for more information.
- You have until the deadline to produce your fanwork and post it to the community!

Timeline

Sign-ups open: June 17th
Last day to sign up: June 30th
All prompts sent by: July 1st/2nd (Date will depend if I can get them out before the Canada Day celebrations)
Posting access opens: July 17th
Last day to post: July 31st August 7th

About the Prompts

- Pairings are strictly Nordic/Nordic only so you will not see pairings like EstFin or NedDen in this event.
- Other characters and pairings are allowed to appear in the fanwork produced but the focus must be on the assigned pairings.
- Each prompt list will be composed of four very short or one word prompts which can be interpreted as narrowly or as broadly as you like as well as four pairings. All prompts will be chosen at random.
- Everyone is also given four optional prompts that you may add into your piece. You cannot substitute your optional prompts with your compulsory ones.

Here is an example of what a prompt list might look like:

1. NorIce - Beach [Optional: Picnic]
2. SuNor - Photo Album [Optional: Coffee]
3. FinIce- Holiday [Optional: Dance]
4. DenSu- Karaoke [Optional: Summer]

If a person were to receive this list, they may decide to go with prompts 1 and 4 and write two fics or draw two arts - Fic/Image 1 would be about Norway and Iceland having a romantic day at the beach (possibly with a picnic in the mix if the optional prompt was included) while fic/image 2 would feature Denmark and Sweden singing a love song to each other through karaoke. Or the person could combine both prompts for one fic/image and have the two couples doing a double date by going to the beach and doing a night filled with karaoke.

The Fanworks

- You must choose at least two prompts and then produce either two fanfics at least 500 words long or two pieces of art. You also have the option of combining both your prompts for one piece of art or a 1000 minimum word fic.
- Works can be as simple or as long and complicated as you want as long as they fit the minimum requirement!
- All ratings for fanwork are permitted!

Please see the FAQ post for further details or questions and the Signup post to sign up! The last day to sign up is June 30th. We're happy to have you join us!
