BBC America took to their Tumblr to announce a contest for all fan creators, offering a chance to have their creations displayed on BBC America’s giant video cube at this year’s San Diego Comic Con. This contest calls fanartists and fan crafters with Orphan Black and Doctor Who (Season 8) related fanwork (so, a good 70% of Tumblr) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Reaching out to fans on their home platform, BBC America made clear that fan creators would retain ownership of their fanworks after submitting, and that BBC America only had permission to display them. Which is big, considering many talk shows don’t even bother to ask permission to display fanart before doing so. Shoutout to the BBC for thinking of their fans!
