Variations is an annual themed challenge for creators at FanWorks, with a new theme each year. Anyone who makes vids, art, fic, podfic, or any other kind of fanwork is welcome to make something as an interpretation of the theme and submit it to the con to be showcased in the con zine, the Variations vidshow, or the con art gallery.

The theme for 2019 is Ignite.

You can interpret "ignite" however you want! Part of the fun of this kind of fanwork challenge is how many different interpretations can come from one theme. Your interpretation does not have to be literal (the word "ignite" doesn't have to show up in your vid songs or fic - but it can if you want it to!), and you can apply the theme to any fandom or fanwork type.

Fan creations of all kinds made as a response to the theme can be submitted to various venues at the con:

Variations vidshow: Any vids made for the theme will be shown at the con in the Variations vidshow and online via con streaming. The deadline for vid submissions is July 7th.

Con zine: Any fanart, fanfic, or podfic made for Variations will be published in our digital zine, available to all attending and supporting members. The deadline for submissions to the con zine is June 30th.

Art gallery: Any textile or other 3D artforms made for Variations must be completed by August 4th and brought to the con by attendees for display in the con's art gallery.

If you have any questions about Variations, the theme, or how to submit a work for the theme challenge, please email

I'm a little confused as to how this works with the info on the website about zine submissions and the May 26th deadline? Are there going to be two sections to the zine, general and then Variations, or is everything for the zine supposed to be on theme?
