Pins!

Happy Spring! We have a few items to share.

Pins

We’re pleased to announce we have selected three pin designs for this year. The first is a lamp by Xemylixa, based on the ones in Kirel and Serat. The second is a pinecone from Obduction by laughingpineapple, and finally, we have a bomb from Obduction by Rayne.


We plan to include these with early registration (register by May 31).

COVID-19

We have received several questions about the coronavirus and its impact on Mysterium. The truth is we do not currently know how this will play out. You may have heard some events this summer have already been cancelled, such as E3. However, those are predominantly large-scale events that require substantial advance notice of a cancellation. Fortunately, we are a bit more nimble and can wait a few more months before making a decision. We have no plans to cancel or postpone the event at this time and we hope that by August we will all be able to go to Mysterium. In the meantime the best thing you can do is follow the recommendations of the WHO, or your national or local health department.

Submission Reminder

We’re still accepting submissions for activity book pages, events, and writing & artwork. The next deadline is for the activity book on April 19. See the Submissions page for more information.

We’ll post another update soon. Everyone stay safe, avoid crowds, and wash your hands! Maybe use this time of social distancing to catch up on any Cyan games you haven’t played.

A Quick Update

Hello everyone!

We wanted to get out a short update just to cover a couple topics.

T-Shirt Design Submissions

As a reminder, we’re still taking t-shirt design submissions through Sunday, February 16. You can submit either a front or back design (or both!), and if your design is selected you will receive a free Mysterium shirt. You are encouraged to incorporate this year’s theme (Sirrus vs Achenar/Red vs Blue/Haven and Spire) and/or the host city of Washington, DC into your design. For more information, please visit the T-Shirt Design Submissions page.

Registration

Some people have asked about registration and the hotel for Mysterium 2020. Barring any unforeseen issues, we plan to open registration March 1. At that time we will also provide information about this year’s hotel and a link to book your room, as well as transportation and parking details.

Expect to see another post from us in a month!

Mysterium 2020 Art Submissions

Greetings! Hopefully everyone has recovered from their Thanksgiving food comas.

We’re pleased to announce it’s now time to send in your art submissions for Mysterium 2020! This year we’ll have four categories:

  • T-shirt design
  • Pins
  • Activity book – NEW!
  • Writing & artwork table

Deadlines will be staggered through early-to-mid 2020. Read on for details.

T-shirt design

Now that we have a theme selected, it’s time to create T-shirts. We encourage you to incorporate Sirrus vs Achenar, Red vs Blue, Haven and Spire into your design. Also feel free to tie in our host city of Washington, DC. If your design is selected, you will receive a free Mysterium shirt! The deadline for this will be Sunday, February 16. More information can be found at our T-Shirt Design Submissions page.

Pins

First introduced in 2018, we are once again planning a set of enamel pins. If you aren’t up for creating a logo but still want a creative outlet, pin design is an easier and faster process. The deadline for these will be Sunday, March 15. Check out the Pin Submissions page for more info, and look at the 2019 designs for inspiration:

Activity book

New this year, we’re putting together an activity book for Mysterium. Want to create a coloring book page? Word search? Crossword puzzle? Submit it by Sunday, April 19. See our Activity Book Submissions page for more details.

Writing & artwork table

Want an opportunity to showcase your Cyan-related artwork or writing? We will once again have a display table to show off your talent! Annacat has again graciously offered to handle this. Details can be found here. All content must be in by Friday, July 31.

That’s it for now. More news to come soon!
