[05.19.05] Emmy Nomination Project Phase 3
OK 'Scapers this is where we do the work for which we are so famous. We need YOU to write to TV Critics and Newspapers in the US reminding them that Farscape: The Peacekeeper Wars is a contender for an Emmy Nomination. Right now is when those who have influence are compiling their lists to recommend Emmy nominations and we need you to remind them about PK Wars.
Check out Emmy Nomination Project Phase 3 to learn more about this and to find out why we as Canadians need to write. That page also has the link to up-to-date e-mail and snail mail addresses to target. Timing is critical on this one folks, so do not delay - write that letter today! (Tip: Write one letter and send it to all the addresses.)
[05.15.05] Convention Season!Yes, it's that time of year again Ladies and Gentlemen. This year Farscape will be well represented at some major Canadian Conventions. Tanya is once again hosting a table at Toronto Trek 19 and your webmistress will be hosting two (!) panels at Westercon, and one again in the fall at VCon. Gatecon has two Farscape actors attending, Lani Tupu and David Franklin, and we are hoping to get a bit of Farscape Fandom present at Montreal's Con*cept in November. So why am I telling you all this? Farscape Canada is planning to promote the Canadian Library Project at all of these conventions. To that end we have, in conjunction with the multi-talented mycattoldme from Frell Me Dead, developed bookmarks to give away in registration bags or for swag at all these conventions. But we are going to need your help. To see the bookmarks, which are awesome, and to learn more about the kind of help Farscape Canada needs please follow the link to the 2005 Convention Bookmark Project.

The ad was designed by Bill Yep, a 'Scaper and a very talented guy. As you will note, we were able to secure copyright permission to use official images and conceptual designs from the production for our ad, a first for us.
Thank you to The Jim Henson Company for giving us permission to do so.
Phase II of the project is to put a similar black, white and red ad, in the Critics' Picks issue of Hollywood Reporter on June 15th in order to bring the attention of Academy of Television Arts and Sciences to Farscape:The Peacekeeper Wars.
So far $1197.19 has been donated towards the ad. The ad will cost $5055, which means we need to raise $3857.81 by June 2nd.

[03.31.05] Farscape Syndication News!
20th Television Syndication is doing the ad sales for Farscape's broadcast syndication starting in September. They have added a listing for Farscape here on their website designed to sell their properties to advertisers:
Farscape coverage is currently at 92 percent of the United States. Farscape has never been in syndication before and there is a large audience that has not even heard of it. Considering what we have managed to accomplish so far, this bodes well for the future.
For a chance to meet all those 'Scapers that you have only encountered on-line, consider attending the Official Farscape Convention in Burbank this Fall. Click the banner below for more information.
This site is part of an international effort to save Farscape. For more information about the global campaign, visit www.watchfarscape.com.
