International Fanworks Day celebration, featuring fandom-themed emoji and representations of fanworks around the globe

Thanks for Celebrating IFD 2019!

International Fanworks Day 2019 has come to an end. We are absolutely thrilled with the response and celebrations we have witnessed on this fifth anniversary of IFD! Here’s a look at how it all went down:

Fanlore sent out their second annual week-long editing challenge. If you missed it, don’t worry–the folks over at Fanlore can always use more hands from those fans who wish to add to the collective pool of knowledge in the fandom wiki.

The OTW’s call for submissions to the topic “What Fanworks Mean to Me” produced some very heartening responses. Check out the What Fanworks Mean to Me post to see more, and keep the ball rolling by mentioning #WhatFanworksMeanToMe on social media. (more…)

Feedback Fest speech bubble with multilanguage feedback phrases

Welcome to Feedback Fest 2019

Welcome to the International Fanworks Day Feedback Fest!

Here’s how it works:

Leave a comment here recommending at least three fanworks, and say something about why you love these works and think others should check them out. You can also link to a recommendation post you’ve made elsewhere or tag it with #FeedbackFest for people to find. Remember that fan communities, newsletters, archives, and other resources are fanworks too, so there are a lot of possibilities!

For everyone checking out the rec’ed fanworks, don’t forget to leave comments, likes, kudos, or other feedback to those fan creators to help spread the love. Let the fannish celebration begin!
