As I’m sure you can imagine, I’ve been getting a lot of email lately. A lot of it contains questions about getting into FaffCon. Since I’ve been replying to them with this info, I think it’s important for me to share publicly about some upcoming changes to the FaffCon registration process. I think will make the process more fair and less painful all around for FaffCon 6 in October.
At the moment registration opens, we all sit at our desks refreshing our browsers repeatedly, hoping to be one of the very first to submit an application.
The Vetting Committee checks each applicant’s credentials, ensuring to the best of our ability that the applicant is currently a working voiceover professional. As soon as an applicant gets a thumbs up, Amy sends an invitation to register.
If anything on the application requires additional clarification or information, we send that request right away, but that person loses his or her place in line since we continue processing applications in the order received.
As soon as the event is full, everyone who is still in the hat is diverted to the Standby list. We sold out in under 7 hours last time, but it only took that long because we process each application manually and with great care.
We make the application available early and you have about 14 days to fill it out.
The vetting committee verifies everyone’s credentials. The names of all qualified applicants are put into a hat.
On the first day of registration, I will pull 100 names in a live webcast. We’ll send an email to each of the folks who were pulled with an invitation to register and they’ll have 24 hours to do so.
Everyone else goes on the Standby list.
Faff Camp will continue to use a more traditional registration process. I welcome your thoughts!
I’ll sign this one…
