Merchandise is something that can come in many forms- Everything from pencil cases to action figures. Our latest contest has been inspired by merchandise, more specifically this fantastic fanart of an AK Girl Funko Pop mockup by regular fan artist Elie Renard Delisle Lafortune.
We have been lucky to be able to produce some merchandise ourselves, as well as working with some fantastic companies, including Badge Base who have made some brilliant badges for us (including a previous contest winner below, the work of the very talented Kendal Collins!)
One way we get merchandise to people is through our Patreon Fox Box- for $10 a month you can get prints, badges and more. As we get more sales, sponsors etc we intend to increase the range, and we are always on the look out for things we can do.
In some cases, we have even been lucky enough to have sponsors help us out, such as during last year’s Norcon when Gail from D’Almaine Photography took pictures and watched the stand, while Jo Keeble from Visualise gave me a much needed breather on the Sunday.
Contest prizes and rules
Just to be clear- you don’t necessarily need to draw an idea for a product. Equally you can tweet an idea with the hashtag #reynardcitymerchandise and include us in it (@reynardcity), or post a video on Youtube (again with the hashtag, this should also be included if you post on Deviantart or Instagram).
Also we love different ideas, but try to keep it accessible to all (no drugs, vape pens, top shelf videos etc- know it sounds obvious but we want to be clear on this!)
The contest will be judged by Green Farm Coffee‘s social media guru Belinda Brown and we just want to say thanks in advance to her coming in- we always try to bring in independent judges for the contest.
The main prize will be a custom merchandise with your design, so it could be a badge, notepad or pen and you will also receive a digital package featuring the AK Girl Adventures and Perfect Platinum Collection, which features some great issues as well as some exclusive extra material (find out more in the shop section). The deadline will be the 1st May, more info in the contest section.
Once again, massive thank you to all our sponsors and supporters, you keep us going!
