All submissions should be in the ‘G’ to ‘PG-13’ rating. The Conbook Materials must not include any nudity, recognizable branded product, or obscene subject matter. In addition, Conbook Materials that the convention staff deems to include material that infringes a third party’s copyright or any other right will not be considered. The Publications Department reserves the right to reject submissions for any reason.
All submissions should include the author’s real name, alias/pseudonym (if desired), and title of submission on the release form.

Other Interesting Stuff
I can’t think of all this! Make your pitch to us and we’ll see what we can sneak into the book. Dream it, let’s do it!
For artwork, we do recommend Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator files so staff can have the power to edit, translate, alter, separate, mix, combine with other material, reuse, and adapt any conbook materials. This is to ensure that we can publish the artwork most effectively and make it work best for the conbook or other publications your artwork may be featured in.
TO SUBMIT YOUR FILE(S) ELECTRONICALLY:
Upload your file and/or release form to Google Drive/Dropbox and send us the link
Make sure the file you upload has the same name on your release form. For best results, you should submit a logical filename, such as one that includes your real name in the filename. Example: LastnameFirstname_art.jpg
