► 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.

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.

We highly recommend that vendors actively participate in the Discord as that is where our attendees will be primarily looking for content!

Events


VRChat World - Waffle Doughnut Party!

CozyCon Online is partnering with the Waffle Doughnut Party for the event! This means that you will be able to meet up with other CozyCon folks in their VRChat world!
We will have links to the world available closer to the event so stay tuned!


Panels, DJ and Art Show Submissions

Submissions close May 1st! Panelists must be 18+.

We now have a shiny new Twitch stream for dedicated event streams this event. Follow us before the event to get notifications when we go live.

Panels & Events

We are primarily looking for panels and events that focus on creativity; be it tutorials, Q&A, meetups, performances, etc., about artwork, music, acting, game dev, web dev, and more. Panel subjects that fall more so outside of these topics will be looked at case by case but please still send them in!

Panels may be streamed, hosted in chat services, games, etc., which will depend on the host.

DJ Applications

DJ's will be able to apply through the Panel & Event application and must follow the panel/event rules here and on the application.

We are looking to organize a nightly DJ block since attendees on our Discord have voted in favour of. This does not prevent a DJ from hosting something earlier, the nightly block will be a primary event however.

Art Show (Minecraft)

We're hosting two art shows in Minecraft this event that include 2D and 3D creations. Entries must be SFW and your own artwork.

Sloth Art Show: Give us your take on fine art, memes, cartoons and more but featuring sloths!

General Art Show: All fandom/industry art accepted. Show off your best pieces, old or new!

Frequently Asked Questions

Is it a FURRY event?
We are not specifically a furry event. We welcome all industries/fandoms and that does include furries! Our mascot is an anthropomorphic sloth because that's what we thought fit from the initial ideas. (The creator of the character, Temrin, is also a fantasy artist and draws anthro's better than humans. ;P )

How does an online convention work?
We are a hub for the event, but each individual Vendor or Panelist will be hosting their offerings and events in their own way. (CozyCon does now offer a centralized Discord server to host panels, events, and general event chatting.)

What this means is that some folks might stream an event, it might be based around and/or done in a game or chat platform, etc. Vendors may host their offerings in an online store, through their website, a journal or gallery and they may have sales/commissions/streams during the event. What and how they run their event involvement is up to them. Vendors and Panelists are from all over the world so expect them to charge in their own currency and respect that.

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! Attending is simple, you only need to check the Vendors or Events pages during (and shortly before) the event to check out whats happening and when! Each listing will have a link to participate wherever that person is hosting their content and you can also interact directly with most vendors/panelists on our Discord.
If you are interested in event merch, we have a Con Store!

Why do Vendors have a fee?
At the moment, it's not free to host this, even if we are only acting as a hub. 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 in hopes of making that money back and being able to run this again and make the event better in the future!

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!)

I want to volunteer to help the event beyond running panels
Awesome! We've got a form up for those wanting to help mod or staff.
