Sorry about the lack of communication the past couple of days. Real Life has been kicking my butt (mostly getting addicted to Glitch. I am 2 days away from learning Remote Herdkeeping!). I'll wait until tomorrow afternoon for people to comment if I'm missing their drabble/drawble/iconbles on the masterlist (to score points properly) or if I misspelled/errored in another way on the masterlist (link goes nowhere, wrong character attached to the wrong drabble, etc) before tallying points. The masterlist is long, so long that on the IJ asylum I had to post it in 2 entries, and I want to be sure I'm not leaving anything out by giving enough time.

Once points are tallied and random winners are randomed, prizes will be handed out by the end of the week at the latest.

Again thank you to our watchers and participants for making our drabblethon a wonderful success!

Drabblethon Masterlist

And our drabblethon is over! Thank you to everyone who watched and participated. Below are the drabbles/drawbles/iconbles created for the drabblethon. Please let me know if I'm missing any drabbles or if there's any corrections to be made. Once everything is corrected, I can start tallying up points.

Don't forget, we also have an AO3 collection for our drabblethon for those who want to upload their works.

As a reminder for those with AO3 accounts, Chromatic Vision has a subcollection for our drabblethon called Chromatic Vision Drabblethon or (or type in 'cvdrabbles' if you've already uploaded your drabbles to AO3). This is optional and not at all required.

If you don't have an AO3 account and would like one, let me know so I can request an invitation for you.

Somewhere Out There...

The fourth round of Chromicons Seven Week Icon Challenge has started. You can sign up here.

Kaleidoscope sign ups are open. The sign ups run until October 8th, 9 pm PST.

And don't forget about our own drabblethon, happening in just a few days!

Almost There...

We are only a few days away from [community profile] chromaticvision's drabblethon. If you can, please help us out and spread the word! We'd love to have plenty of participants from all corners of fandom. Remember, the drabblethon is not just for writers but fanartists and icon makers as well!

If you have any questions, feel free to check out our Frequently Asked Questions from our usual rounds, to answer questions like "Can I create a work based on original characters instead of something fannish?" or "How do I know if [CHARACTER/PERSON] qualifies as a character/person of color?" or even "Do you consider Spock or Gaila from the new Star Trek movie as Characters of Color?"

2nd Prize - $15
3rd Prize - $10
2 Randomized Winners - $5

It's Coming...

In a few weeks, [community profile] chromaticvision will be hosting a drabblethon. All fandoms, all ratings, and RPS is more than welcomed. The only requirements for the drabblethon is that each drabble focuses on a character of color whether singular or in a pairing, and that each drabble is 100 words (but can be written in sets of 100).

More details will be made available soon.

Everything Old Is New

If you have an older and completed work that features a character of color, and want to participate in [community profile] chromaticvision, you may do so today. Odds are, your work is new to us, and we're all about giving love to characters of color. ;)

Works posted will be included into Round 2's masterlist.

word from a mod

There are two more days left of posting for Round 2 of [community profile] chromaticvision. For those watching thus far, both IJ and DW comms have had some wonderful works posted already, so if you can, please take the time to comment and show them some love as they've showed characters of color love.

Also a plug for another comm's event. If you'd like to give blanket or otherwise permission to have your fics featuring characters of colors recorded as podfic at DW's Amplification, drop a line here, and to find out more information.

Posting Begins!

Like the subject title says, posting begins now until the end of April 9th. Everything Old Is New starts April 11th. Amnesty period begins April 15th onward.

Just tag your entries with event: round 2 and whatever fandom/media it belongs to. Don't worry if you don't tag as the mods will do so if you miss anything.

Works can either be posted within the community itself or linked to your personal journal/archive/whathaveyou, as long as the link doesn't lead to somewhere locked.

For those watching the DW comm, you may post there instead and all entries will be included in one masterlist.

Let the celebration begin!

Hello everyone!

This is your mod letting you know that posting begins for [community profile] chromaticvision in a couple of days on April 5th (Tuesday) to April 9th.

If you have an older work featuring a character of color, you can post it during Everything Old Is New on April 11th.

If you're unable to finish your fannish work, never fear. Our amnesty period is from April 15th until round 3. What that means is that you may post your fannish work without repercussions and it'll be included into the master list.

Good luck and we'll see you on the 5th!

Sign ups for Round 2 are now closed, with a few extra days thrown in even. *g*

If you missed sign ups, there's still an opportunity to participate in [community profile] chromaticvision. On April 11, 2011, we have what we call Everything Old Is New. If you've created anything that features a character of color within the past year (or years. We won't tell!), you may post it for Everything Old Is New, because odds are, your work is new to us, and we're all about giving love to characters of color.

Posting will be from April 5 to April 9. If you need a place to host either graphics/art/icons or longer fics, please let the mods know so we can make arrangements, whether temporary or permanently.
