    ► You will eventually need a banner ad for your space (templates on this page) and you'll be given access to a google drive to upload these things.
    NOTE: Vendors are jurried, 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.► Content generated through AI (text, image, sound, etc) is not allowed in any of our spaces, that especially includes vendor sales. We will not support this violation of artists rights and those found using infringing data-sets will be barred from our event.► 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 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, breaking the rules/terms, abusing our spaces, etc.► 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 and/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 on Discord or using our VRC worlds and is breaking the rules of the event, you can contact us to report it or use the ticket system in Discord.► CozyCon does not provide payment transaction services.

     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!
     VR Worlds 
    While we do have VR booths and posters available for our vendors, you DO NOT have to participate in VR! 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! VR platforms have a "desktop mode" and some Phone/mobile apps available. Check our events for more information on our worlds.
    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!


     Things to note 
    Payment will be accepted through PayPal via Convention Master.
    When possible, event staff will also organize multi streams, and setup vendors with automated stream announcement bots.Please be aware that generally, payments are non-refundable unless the event gets cancelled (which is unlikely to occur since we're online.)You can find examples of listings below

    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!)
    I want to volunteer to help the event!
    That is awesome! We would love to hear from you. You can contact us through the Volunteer page form, and if you decide you want to host a panel of some kind, you can do so on the Events page.
