The second vidshow I was involved with was also the last panel of VidUKon2013, the Canon Ships show. I was lucky enough to be able to work with Blacksquirrel on this show, and she's a genuine delight to work with. (She actually did most of the hard work, but let me grab a share of the credit!)

Naturally, we began in a highly organised fashion - we emailed something like half a gig of vids we liked to each other, new and old, famous and obscure, and then debated what we actually meant by "shipper", and how we wanted to bound the show.

With that done, we then horse traded over the vids we liked to come up with about 90-100 minutes worth of vids for the 45 minute show. That's when things got tough...

I feel very lucky to have been able to work on this show; it was because of a ship that I set out to learn to vid, and some lovely shippers helped ease me into fandom, where I made a great many friends and met a lot of genuinely nice, passionate people. Naturally, I fought to make sure that my favourite vid for that particular fandom ship made it into this show.

Sadly, Blacksquirrel had to head home before the show aired - so if you like it, please do let her know. If you didn't like it, feel free to shout at me ;)

Without further ado, on with the playlist...

This is a little late, but after all the frantic activity in the run up to VidUKon, I ended up either hibernating or playing Dragon Age: Origins obsessively for weeks afterwards. And yet, it feels odd not to be working on the next one yet...

One of the two vidshows I was lucky enough to be involved with for VidUKon was the Vidder's Choice vidshow; the brainchild of such_heights, the idea was to have a show made up of vids that weren't premiering but were submitted by attending and supporting members - a chance for everyone to get another vid shown, and as it turned out, an interesting introduction to the con and the people there. Seventeen vids were submitted in total, and with more than 50 minutes of playing time the show was split into two halves with an intermission in the middle.

The vids cover a whole range of fandoms and eclectic tastes, and while that made putting together a running order something of a challenge, I'm really glad I had the chance to do it; I'm not sure if I'm allowed to play favourites or not, but even through I didn't get much chance to chat to people at the con, I did get the chance to tell purplefringe just how much I liked her Firefly/Serenity Zoe/Wash vid, Devil's Spoke. It's such a lovely, warm vid that I knew when I first saw it that it was the vid I wanted to finish the show with, and while I didn't get to gush embarassingly at many vidders at the con, I did for this one.

So, here are the playlists for the two halves of the show; some of the links are to vid masterlist posts where I couldn't find individual journal entries for them. I hope everyone who attended the show enjoyed it as much as I did!

Hi all,

We're still running short on volunteers to organise programming, so if you've been thinking about it, do please get in touch! You don't have to have a definite idea or be committed 100%, but it would be good to hear from people if you're at all interested. Email to discuss further!

more information / suggested ideas.

Many thanks to everyone for your programming suggestions so far. Under the cut are the list of ideas that you've come up with. If you'd like to be involved in making any of them happen, do get in touch! If you've never hosted a panel or put together a vidshow before, don't worry, the concom is here to help.

To sign up to run some programming, email by the end of the month and tell us what you'd like to do.

see more discussion about programming here.

Your idea certainly doesn't have to come from the below list, but hopefully it will give you a sense of the kinds of things attendees might like to see.

Hi all,

First, two important registration dates that got left off the original announcement post: price of registration increases to £52 on March 17th, and registrations close on April 14th.

Now then, on to the exciting business of programming.

The con is made by the participation of attendees - the themes, focus and range of programming is all down to you.

There are two kinds of programming you can facilitate:

Vid Shows

Vid Shows are put together by one or two volunteer VJs, who pick a theme and assemble a playlist of awesome vids on that theme. The theme can be content-based, e.g. 'animals', or style-based, e.g. 'comedy vids'. It's really up to you. We recommend that you pick a theme broad enough to put together a diverse playlist. Ideally, each vid should be from a different fandom/source, and there should be a good range of vidders and styles represented. Vid shows should last between 40 and 45 minutes.

Vid shows we've had in previous years that we're keen to recreate if there's interest are 'Made in the UK', showcasing UK fandoms, and 'Best of Festivids', a playlist of some of the best of [community profile] festivids. If anyone would be interested in VJing either of those shows, please email


Panels can be run in all kinds of different ways, from powerpoint presentation to roundtable discussion. Panels can cover any aspect of the world of vidding, from technical discussion to looking at vidder culture. You can also run a joint vidshow + panel.


This post is a chance for people who are thinking about coming to the con to throw out ideas for what kind of programming they'd like to see. Either throw out ideas for things you'd like to do yourself to gauge interest, or share your thoughts on the sort of programming you'd like to see as an attendee.

If you decide that you're definitely interested in running a vid show or a panel, email with your idea by Sunday 27 January. The concom will then put together a schedule that is as varied as possible and contact the people whose ideas we'd like to go ahead with. VJs and panelists will then have until Friday 15 March to submit the vids they'd like to show and information for the programme.


Can't make it to the con but interested in doing some programming? That's an option too - you don't have to be there in person to put a vidshow together, and if anyone has any creative ideas of running a panel from a distance, let us know.


So, what would you like to see at Vidukon this year?

Vidukon will be taking place on the 18th and 19th of May in Cardiff.

Non-attending registration is £16 for anyone who is unable to make it but would like to support the con. You will receive a copy of the premieres DVD and the con programme after the event.

Hotel Details:

The con hotel is Future Inns in Cardiff Bay. More details about room rates, facilities and so on can be found at the Vidukon website.

We've reserved a block of rooms - to book one of these, mention that you're attending the Vidukon convention when you book. This option is available until April 17th. The room prices for these reserved rooms are as follows. You can have up to 4 people per room for a small additional fee.

A post will go up shortly for people to discuss and brainstorm ideas for what vidshows and panels they'd like to see at the con. Programming is reliant on the efforts of attendees, so if you have an idea for something you'd like to organise, email us at

If you can't attend but would like to put something together, let us know too! We'll give priority to registered attendees but it's certainly possible to put together a vid show remotely, and if anyone wants to Skype in a panel or something, that could be awesome.

There'll be a Premieres vid show on Saturday for brand new vids. If you'd like to submit a vid to that, whether you're attending or not, please do! The deadline to do so is March 31st. More detailed information about vid submission will be available shortly.
