Three days to go until registration opens for Wild North 2024: The Enchanted Forest.

One of our unique traditions is for attendees to witness majestic birds in a live falconry display.

Plenty of opportunities to handle them, too.

Afternoon Flufftails,

We can confirm that there are two places left for Wild North 2024.

If you register and those spaces are already gone, don't fret, you'll be put in a waiting list and get a place at the next available opportunity.

You can now go here to register: https://www.wildnorth.uk/registration-page

We've had some users report that the system says their email/username already exists. If so, we recommend trying to log in like normal or select "Forget Password" to get a login.

Thank you all for your support!

Evening everyone,

If you have fully paid before 6:30pm tonight, you should be able to select your room and volunteer role.

Let us know @WildNorthComms if you find any issues.

Evening Flufftails,

Firstly, we want to say how awesome it is that you want to participate in Wild North this year! We had filled up in less than 24 hours, and lots of you want to support us to make this year even better.

Thanks to your contributions, this convention is what it is. To show off your creative skills, you can contribute artwork and stories of adventures in enchanted forests for our conbook. What makes the forest enchanted is up to you!

If you want to include Twizell or one of his friends as characters, or Featherstone Castle as a nearby setting, we have a page with all the references to help you: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1KpiHETldFPAjElosTncCGLJpul1E4MQV/edit?usp=sharing&ouid=111639324044018562686&rtpof=true&sd=true

Please keep in mind the following art requirements:
* Between 300 dpi and 600 dpi (600 recommended)
* The shortest edge of the image should be no smaller than 900 pixels to ensure it's a high enough resolution to print.
* CMYK files for preference.
* If you're submitting an image with a transparent background, please submit it as a PSD file.

As well as the following requirements for writing:
* Please keep it to under 1000 words.

And for both:
* No content over PG-13.

The deadline for submissions is 30th June. Files can be sent to us by email (events@wildnorth.uk) or Telegram (@WildNorthComms). Be sure to specify what kind of artwork you're submitting (i.e. "Artwork", "Story", "Conbook"), and the files are uncompressed, so they are of the highest quality.
Looking forward to being impressed!

Evening Flufftails!

Registration opened over two weeks ago, and we're happy to see that most have fully paid. Those who are due to pay will be reminded by email shortly before the deadline. If payment has not been made 28 days after registration, your place will be offered to the next person on the waiting list.

If you feel you will have difficulty paying on time, please contact us by email (events@wildnorth.uk) or Telegram (@WildNorthComms).

For all who have registered, we're happy to see that some of you have already volunteered for duties. Please fill out your preferred duties on the RegSys to help Wild North be as good as possible.

We are still looking for people with a valid First Aid training certificate to volunteer as First Aiders.

We are also looking for qualified Mental Health First Aiders. The same certificate requirements apply.

Thank you all for your support!

Evening Flufftails,

We're happy to announce that the Trading Post will return this year!

Dealers, artists, crafters, and sellers come to sell their wares. If you are interested in being a trader, please give us an email (events@wildnorth.uk) or message on Telegram (@WildNorthComms)

We are looking forward to seeing your wares!

Hello Flufftails,

At Wild North, attendees can either relax or have fun at one of several events. Some of the events are only possible thanks to attendees like you.

If you have an event you’d like to run at Wild North (whether it be a panel, game, workshop, etc), contact us with your proposal! Either email us at events@wildnorth.uk or send us a message on Telegram @WildNorthComms.

We look forward to seeing what you’d like to run!

Evening Flufftails!

We hope those of you who were at ConFuzzled had a great time and a safe journey home.

Today, we're here with news! Remember the adorable ferrets from last year? We're pleased to announce that Little Paws Ferret Rescue will return as the charity for Wild North 2024! They have been eager to return since last year and are looking forward to seeing you all again!

Hey Flufftails!

Don't forget to show us your creativity this year. Time is fast approaching our deadlines and we want as many of our talented fluffs highlighted as possible!

Whether it's artworks, poems, stories, or songs, we would love to give you a spot in our 2024 conbook!

Be sure to contact us (either by email or @WildNorthComms) if you're interested no later than Sunday 30th June, so we have you in mind before we get to print.

And remember, if you need inspiration, our theme for 2024 is The Enchanted Forest, we also have lots of great tips and resources here: https://www.wildnorth.uk/documents/art-and-stories-wanted
