Signups have been opened! To find out how to sign up, please read the signup post.

Same as last year:

Since it worked so well last year, we're doing signups with Google Forms this year too.

If you kept your prompt lists from previous years, you can still submit fanwork responding to those prompts, as long as you sign up for this year's fest too.

Just the same as last year's fest, submissions in all languages are allowed and encouraged! This primarily applies to fanfic, but also to comics and captioned drawings. If you want to write in a language other than English, make sure label it for tagging purposes.

New this year:

In addition to the text version of the fest schedule, you can also view the fest schedule on Google Calendar.

Welcome to the Nordipalooza Fanwork Fest!

What is Nordipalooza?

This fest is designed to encourage people to make fanwork exploring a wide variety of interactions between the Nordic characters. The goal is to provide people the challenge of working within the confines of short prompts featuring two randomly-assigned characters. At the same time, it allows for the freedom and flexibility to be as creative and imaginative as possible.

Fanwork centring on the themes of family, friendship, rivalry, historical, and romantic situations are all equally encouraged! All ratings are accepted, and fic submissions in all languages are accepted.

In this fest, each person is assigned a list of four prompts. Each prompt contains two randomly-assigned Nordic characters, one simple theme, and two completely optional historical time periods to use as extra inspiration if you wish. From this list, you then pick two prompts, and for each prompt produce one piece of art or write at least 500 words. There is also the option to respond to only one prompt if you want to make a more complicated fanwork.

Participants from previous years can submit fanwork based on prompts they received for previous fests, provided they sign up for the current fest as well. You will receive a new list, and can write for either the new one or the old one; it's up to you.


Signups open: March 21st 7AM EST
Last day to sign up: April 8th

First information, and the most important: Because people had a lot of problems accessing Livejournal in 2014, Nordipalooza will be moved to Dreamwidth.org for the 2015 fest. All entries and comments have been imported over to the DW community, [community profile] nordipalooza.

The existing entries and comments on the LJ community will stay there, but all new information will be at the Dreamwidth community and the submissions for 2015 will be posted only there. If you don't want to get a Dreamwidth account, you can still sign up and participate, but you will need to submit by using Livejournal OpenID or emailing your submission to the fest email.

Secondly: The refreshed information/guidelines and schedule for 2015 will be posted on March 15th at the latest. Signups for the fest are going to be open on March 21st. Watch the DW Comm or the Fest Tumblr for more information.

If there are any questions, you can leave a comment here, or send an ask to the Fest Tumblr.
