We've finally managed to update our master list of fanworks for the Eid-al-Fitr 2010 challenge and together we have managed to produce - 44 fanworks! This includes 3 vids, 3 pieces of fanart, 2 meta posts and 5 wallpapers; all categories of fanworks we didn't even have a single contribution in the last four years.

And the amount of money these fanworks have raised (provisionally - we'll post again once reciepts of donations come in) is...


You guys, do you realise how awesome you all are?!

Thank you so much, everyone who promoted, wrote, drew, vidded, talked and otherwise got this festival challenge to the place it reached this year.

We will be replying to all the sponsors in a day or two with the amounts their pledges reached. Many of the pledges got maxed out, which is utterly delightful, although meta, vids and fanart could still net us a couple of hundred dollars more. (If any sneaks its way in before we reply to sponsors, we'd be happy to still count it.)

Now that the challenge is over, please do take the time to enjoy the fanworks created, and leave some feedback for everyone who put in so much time and energy making them - they deserve to be appreciated on their artistic merits as well as for what they earned for charity. Consider writing up a rec post maybe, for your favourite fanworks to come out of it!

And do remember this community is open all year round to post about Muslim characters in the media around you!

[personal profile] kairia, [personal profile] azuire and I all thank you all once again for making our Eid so awesome!

Greetings and salutations, all! Celebrations for Eid have finally ended, and the response for our little challenge has been absolutely fantastic.

But since [personal profile] dhobikikutti is away from the internet, we're extending the challenge for one more day. After that, we'll post the official master list, and the final tally of pledges.

So if you have anything you've wanted to finish or feel you could do a little extra, please go ahead :)

prozacpark: (AoS:  Rumina/Sinbad)
[personal profile] prozacpark

Fanvid focusing on the relationship between Sinbad and Rumina on "The Adventures of Sinbad."  AOS is one of the few shows that features a female villain as the male hero's main nemesis, and it comes with all the subtext of worthy opponent and enemy mine, and the show lets it be slightly canon.  Sinbad starts his career on the series by killing Rumina's father, a powerful sorcerer, but not before Rumina shows interest in him.  Most days, Rumina just wants to have sex with him.  But barring that, she'll also gleefully try to kill him, and their interactions consist of her doing one or the other alternatively, depending on what the situation calls for.  This dynamic is mostly fun because of the gender-reversed nature of it, and how Sinbad often has to use his manly wiles to distract Rumina from her evil, evil ways.  So they make out.  Often.  <3

Eid Mubarak! Selamat Hari Raya Idul Fitri! Ciid Wanaagsan Oo Wacan Dhamaantiin! Bayramınız Kutlu Olsun! Barka Da Sallah! Eidet mobarak Roza wa namazet qabool dakhel hajiha wa ghaziha! Happy Eid!

Here are some truly stunning images from around the world of the month of Ramadan being observed.

And here are some songs for Eid from around the world, including some truly cheesy Bollywood ones.

Our collection is now live, and you are free to post your fanworks to this comm (as well as anywhere else you like). Leave a comment here with the following information, and we will edit our post to add it to the list.

The challenge stays open until midnight of the 13th of September, because our co-mod [personal profile] kairia pointed out that Pakistan (and Egypt and Afghanistan) celebrate for three days, and since we are raising money for the country, we thought we’d follow its tradition to give us the maximum time possible to raise what we can. Let's hope we can raise the full amount of pledged money for Pakistan flood survivors from this!

It's around 24 hours to Eid depending on your time zone, and we will close our challenge at the end of 13th September. And here are some really important numbers concerning our sponsorship for the Pakistan floods -

10 fanvids can raise $100
20 pieces of fanart can raise $100
10 pieces of meta can raise $100
25 fanfics of over 1,000 words each can raise $350

And 50 fanworks can raise - $625

Please, please help us reach this number. Persuade friends to write a short story. Ask them to draw your favourite heroine. Tell them to write up some meta about why a particular character or movie or book is awesome.

Our challenge is awesome and we love it, but being able to give some necessary aid to people devastated by the floods is even more awesome and important. And we have the ability to do this.

Please help us make this happen.

If you are writing fiction, post it to the AO3 collection. If you are making fanart, vids, meta or anything else, you can post it to your own journals, to this comm or both, just make sure to link to it in the master post of fanworks we will be making early on the 11th.

[personal profile] dhobikikutti
It is almost two weeks into Ramadan, and two weeks to Eid-al_Fitr. We hope your creations for our festival are going well!

We would also like to throw in our support of fannish fundraising efforts (such as [ profile] help_pakistan) for the terrible floods that have killed over 1,500 people in Pakistan and displaced more than a million. What has been especially troubling for [personal profile] kairia and me has been seeing a link between Islamophic perceptions of Pakistanis as 'terrorists' and 'honour-killing savages' and an apathetic desire to 'let them die'.

As you know, one very crucial goal of our fanworks challenge has been to increase the responsible representation of Muslims in fandom, because we know the real world effects of what distortions and erasures in the media we consume can have.

So we would like to encourage you to support this challenge, and at the same time support the much more pressing and urgent need in Pakistan, by signing up to sponsor our Challenge.

How it works:
  • You comment to this entry, making a pledge to donate a certain amount of money per fanwork generated. You can put conditions on your pledge, such as "I promise to donate $2 for every piece of fanfiction over 1,000 words", or "I will donate ₤5 for every fan vid, ₤3 for every fanart, ₤2 for every icon post", or "I will donate ¥1 for every fanwork up to a total of ¥30".
  • On September 11th we will post a master list of all the fanworks created for the challenge, with a breakdown by type.
  • By the end of September 12th, we will reply to your pledges telling you the amount you have committed to donating.
  • We ask that you, when possible, send us reciepts of your donations, so that we can post the actual amount of money raised by this challenge. You can email them to with private info blacked out; all information will be kept confidential.
  • The charities we are encouraging donations to are Edhi Foundation, Relief4Pakistan, or the organisations listed here.

Please do help us get the word out for this double challenge; we need both generous donors who will sponsor fanworks, as well as enthusiastic fans committed to increasing the number of fanworks in our challenge!

The crescent moon has been spotted in various time zones across the world, and Wednesday the 11th of August, 2010, will be the start of the month of Ramadan.

Which means it is also time for the start of our annual fanworks challenge - this being the fourth year we've been running it!

Eid-Al-Fitr will be being celebrated across the world between 10th to 12th September, 2010, depending on local moon sightings. [community profile] eid_ka_chand's annual challenge asks for fanworks -- be they fic, art, vids, icons, meta, picspam etc. -- that focus on a fictional Muslim character.

Fanworks do not need to explicitly focus on Eid or Islam, and can be about characters who are culturally rather than actively practising Muslim.

The master list of fictional Muslim characters is a good place to start looking for fandoms you can create in.

We are running the challenge for fanfiction this year at the Archive of Our Own. Post to the collection there if you are create fanfiction of any length. We will be creating a master list of other fanworks generated that we cross-post to both [community profile] eid_ka_chand and [ profile] eid_fic, so you can choose to post or link to icons, vids, fanart etc at the community of your choice.

Last year we had 12 stories and 5 icon posts... and not a single piece of fanart or vid. The visibility of Muslim characters in dominant Anglophone media is minor and one-dimensional. We really really hope that fandom can help us increase the representation, and join all of us who celebrate Eid!

Please sign up! We are looking forward to enjoying whatever you make!
