    You will need the following things for your application:► You need to have a registration account and be registered for the current event (at least the free/digital tier) for the application to work. (The sponsor tier does not get you a sponsor table, they are separate things.)
    ► Your Discord username (name#1234).
    ► Your Business name (will be shown on the site & discord.)
    ► Your PRIMARY website URL with your event offerings.
    ► Whether your content is SFW, NSFW or both.

    ► Your Currency (USD, CAD, AUS, GBP, etc.)
    ► Sponsor Vendors also need: Short bio/blurb for your listing and up to 4 more URLs.
    ► You will eventually need a banner ad for your space (templates below) and you'll be given access to a google drive to upload these things.
    NOTE: Vendors will be juried this event, instead of first come first served.


    Vendor Rules & Guidelines► You MUST be of legal age in your place of residence AND at least 18+ to be a vendor. Minors generally cannot enter into a legal contract on their own.► CozyCon welcomes all kinds of creators from digital to traditional visual artists, writers, textile creators, jewelers and other crafters, 3D designers and traditional sculptors, game developers, musicians, performers and more! This event is also open to all fandoms/industries as long as content follows our rules. We also welcome services that are for creatives. (Vendor space is essentially an ad to bring attendees to your shop/offers/stream/etc.)► CozyCon is not responsible for your content and will not protect you from legal action. We retain the right to blacklist folks doing anything illegal or breaking the rules/terms.► NSFW is allowed as long as:
    1) Applications have been filled out properly so we can appropriately mark the rating on our pages
    2) NSFW content must be drawn/created, no real life NSFW content
    3) Your NSFW content is on a site that is behind a warning/age or log-in block.
    4) Your banner art must remain SFW.
    ► CozyCon has no direct involvement in your transactions. If you have issues, please take it up with the other party involved, or the administration of the site they were using. We do not have the means to handle disruptive attendees OFF-SITE so please use the block/mute functionality there or contact the admins of the sites you are using to report users. If the user is also on our discord server and is breaking the rules of the event, you can contact us to report it.►We reserve the right to remove vendors/panelists who abuse our efforts & event, be found scamming their clients, etc.► CozyCon does not provide payment transaction services. Every vendor will have their own services to conduct business through and are beholden to those service rules and regulations.


    DISCORD
    Vendor's should join our Discord as that is our "home base" and where a lot of the vendor perks are setup. If you are not there, we cannot set you up with the vendor role, posting access for sales, etc, which is part of the paid perks!
    VRCHAT
    While we do have VRChat booths and posters available for our vendors, you DO NOT have to participate in VRChat! Think of it like an art show, your booth is there for people to look at, you do not have to be there and it's impossible to be in every instance of the world.
    PLEASE NOTE: You DO NOT need a VR Headset! VRChat as a "desktop mode"!
    The vendor costs help us continue to keep the event running and are based on the perks provided for each tier. Please read them carefully before choosing!

    FAQ & Rules

    Mascots: Marty(fox, Virtual Furnal Equinox) and Connor(sloth, CozyCon)

    Art by Igglypou (Marty the Fox) & Temrin (Connor the Sloth)

    CozyCon & Funeral Equinox Partnership InfoCozyCon (CCO) and Furnal Equinox (FE) are sharing resources, helping each other out and working together to promote each others events. Despite that, we are still entirely separate events with separate teams. So if you have questions, contact the team for the convention you are asking about.

    - CCO’s main event is in September, with a smaller May event. (Both are virtual)
    - FE's hybrid in-person AND virtual event is in March
    - Both events will be promoting each other on social media, our websites, etc.
    - FE is graciously adapting their VRChat worlds for CCO use, including a Vendor space, available year-round. This means CCO vendors will now get all year round listings/booths in the CCO platforms. CCO vendor applications open for the September event, and approved vendors also get access to the following Mini May event as a vendor at no extra cost
    - Sharing is caring! We all know how cons need more volunteers and we hope that by partnering we can grow our volunteer pool and have them overlap!
    - Maybe more~ Who knows what the future will hold and we're very excited!

    Event Rules & FAQ

    EVENT RULES

    GENERAL- Our focus is on creative topics or services that support the arts. If you have a business unrelated to these things, feel free to apply but we will give priority to our focus.
    - These rules apply to all our spaces and our external services may have their own sets of rules you must follow. (Discord, Twitch, VRChat, etc) If anyone is breaking our rules, please contact us to report it. We also highly suggest you utilize the block/mute features where applicable.
    - We reserve the right to remove anyone who abuses our efforts & events, be found scamming, participating in something illegal, etc.
    PANELISTS, DJs & VENDORS- You MUST be of legal age in your place of residence AND at least 18+ to host a panel, be a vendor, be a DJ or be involved with anything that gets live streamed to our audience.
    - We welcome all creators, digital or traditional. Be it visual artists, writers, textile creators, jewelers or crafters, 3D designers, sculptors, game developers, musicians, performers and more! This event is also open to all fandoms/industries as long as their content follows our rules.
    - We are not responsible for your content and will not protect you from legal action.
    - NSFW content is allowed (in NSFW channels in Discord only) as long as:
    1) Applications have been filled out properly so we can appropriately mark the rating on our vendor/panel pages/schedules
    2) NSFW content must be drawn/created content, no real life NSFW content unless approved by staff for educational purposes.
    3) Your NSFW content is on a site that is behind a warning/age or log-in block.
    4) All submitted art assets (banners/booth/etc) must remain SFW for the website, VRChat and general areas of our discord.
    - We have no direct involvement in your transactions or experiences with others. If you have issues, please take it up with the other party involved, or the administration of the site they were using as their store/payment/etc.
    - We do not provide payment transaction services for Vendors/Panelists. Every vendor will have their own services to conduct business through and are beholden to those service rules and regulations.


    FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

    Is this a FURRY event?
    We are not specifically a furry event. We welcome all industries/fandoms which include furries! Our mascot is an anthropomorphic sloth because that's what we thought fit. (The creator of the character, Temrin, is also a fantasy artist and draws anthro's better than humans. ;P ) It just so happens that, through networking and word of mouth, a majority of our vendors are furry.
    How does an online convention work?
    We offer community spaces within Discord, VRChat and Minecraft for folks to hang out in together and we also host livestreams that showcase the content of our Vendors, Panelists, DJ’s, etc. However please be advised that CozyCon mods are not in control of the websites, services, or other external places that others link to from our spaces. We are a worldwide event so expect users from different time zones, with different currencies, etc. You can find schedules closer to our event dates.
    How do I attend and is there a fee?
    Attending is free and we hope you'll spend your money buying from the Vendors or tipping your favourite Panelists/DJ’s! Attending is simple; Join the Discord for the full experience but you only need to check the Vendors or Events pages during (and shortly before) the event to check out what's happening, when and where! Each listing will have a link to participate wherever that item is being hosted (Twitch, Discord, VRchat, etc.)
    How do I support the event?
    You can support CozyCon in a variety of ways!
    Registration Swag Bundles (Special items, badges, etc), Convention Store (Tshirts, hoodies, housewares, etc), Volunteer (Help us make things happen!), or word of mouth!
    Why do Vendors have a fee?
    It is not free to host CozyCon. Without funding, we are unlikely to host this again, let alone make the event better in the future! We have overhead to cover that we cannot afford out of pocket, so we've added a fee to those who will be making money off our event. This is done in the hopes of them making that money back. For the cost of the fees, Vendors are advertised on vendor lists, in VRChat worlds, and in our Discord for almost an entire year, including our September main event, and the following Mini May event.
    Why doesn't CozyCon charge for Vendors listings in USD?
    Because we're based in Canada! (This is good news for Americans, IT'S CHEAPER!)
