Octocon 2012

A Message From John Vaughan

Well it's that time of year again! The entries are in and now comes the hard task of judging. Which of the short films will be nominated and take home the new Blaster awards? That's right new! Because to make things even more interesting, we've decided to change the look of our award! It's still a blaster, but you have to ask which model? In two weeks time, we are going to start revealing this year's nominees, so get ready to see some of the best films from around the world. We've had winners from Ireland, Hungary, Australia, Wales, and Italy in the past, so where will this year's winners come from? Only you get to decide!

In the meantime, the Blaster selection panel would like to apologize for their outburst last year. We promise not to let tempers get so frayed this time round.

Oh well can't say we tried!

Additional Guests

So we've been very quiet here at Octocon Towers for the last while! This is because we were working away in the background, getting ready for the convention.

However, it's time to start building up towards the convention, so today we are announcing two additional guests for this year's exciting Octocon.

The first guest for this week is Maura McHugh, author, screen writer, and comic book writer.

The second guest we are announcing this week, is the excellent Celine Kiernan, winner of the 2012 CBI Book of the Year and CBI Childrens Choice of the Year awards.

Go check out their bios and we shall return next week to announce two more guests!
