What does an agent do?
We are determined to make Finncon X the most international Finncon yet. To achieve our goal we need agents all across Europe (and the rest of the globe). The con will have no entrance fee, so the agents will not need to collect fees or keep lists of paid memberships. Spreading the word (and the occasional poster or leaflet) is enough.
Examples of what an agent might do:
- e-mail information about the con to science fiction-, fantasy- or anime-mailinglists
- post information about the con on science fiction-, fantasy- or anime-newsgroups or web-boards
- try to get people to put the Finncon-banner on their web pages
- send information about the con to local magazines and fanzines
- spread leaflets and/or posters at local cons or other fan gatherings
As Finncon is a labour of love no one gets payed for working for Finncon. This goes for everyone on the con committee, all the GoHs and of course for agents too. So, you won't get any money, but there'll be plenty of glory to pass around for everyone who helps to make Finncon X - Eurocon 2003 the European sf-event of 2003!
