Hello, Doctor Who Tumblr here. We recently made a post about how excited we are to have Whovian fan art and videos featured at Comic-Con International: San Diego 2014. We received a lot of questions over the weekend and thought we’d address some of them here:
BBC America is accepting fan art and videos from anywhere in all of space and time, feel free to submit no matter what country (or planet, or dimension) you’re from.
The maximum video dimensions are 1920 x 1080. As far as length goes, longer video submissions should be cut down to 30-seconds or less. The video wall is silent so it’s fine for videos to have any sort of music in them but unfortunately we won’t be able to hear it (we’ll look up at the screen and sing “doo-wee-oooo” to make up for that.)
BBC America is looking to specifically feature the Twelfth Doctor and Clara at the convention in celebration of the new Series. Video pieces or photos featuring DW cosplayers dressed as them are very welcome.
The video wall is a featured part of the BBC America booth and is quite visible on the con floor. It highlights content from BBC America shows as well as information about related events at the convention.
Yes – at previous events submitting artists have been identified with their Tumblr usernames.
That’s all for now. Still have a question? Our inbox is always open, feel free to send us an ask, and don’t forget that the deadline for submissions is June 16th at 12PM ET.
