FWG Monthly Newsletter February 2023

Welcome to February!
We’re a couple of days late because I wasn’t sure if we were going to be in a position to announce a couple of exciting things, but we still aren’t there yet, so I’ll just have to tease some announcements that should be coming in the next few months. Keep watching our social media channels and the blog here for updates as they happen! Guild members might also want to keep an eye on their emails, as there will be one coming from the FWG soon regarding some updates to member profiles.

But what can we announce?
Well, we can share that it is officially furry award season again! The Ursa Major Awards are currently open for nominations – click here before February 11th to get your nominations in!
The Leo Awards are also open for nominations all month – please check eligibility requirements to see if you are able to nominate works. The Leo Awards are also seeking judges. All information for the Leos can be found by clicking here.
The Coyotl Awards will also soon be opening for nominations. This will be announced through our Twitter feed, so if you aren’t following us there, please consider doing so to keep up to date with all of the latest news. The Coyotl Reading List is a good place to see what works are eligible this year across all three awards, so consider having a browse through to see what you have read. Voting for the Coyotl Awards will open next month.
