Charity[edit]

On September 16, 2012, the charity for 2013 was announced to be the "Södertälje Katthem", an animal shelter specialized on homeless housecats.[6] The convention board decided to add a bit of money to the amount raised by donations of money and artwork for the auction and lottery so that in the end the even sum of 30,000 SEK (roughly 4,650 USD) could be donated to the charity.[7]

Registration[edit]

Online registration for NordicFuzzCon 2013 was opened on Saturday September 29, 2012, at 18:00 (6pm) Swedish time (CET).[8] The convention uses a newly developed registration system integrated into the website. It uses a shared login with the forum, which went online a week before on Sunday September 23, 2012.[9]

When pre-registration closed on March 4, 2013, the convention had 165 registered attendees from 14 different countries.[10] In particular, all five Nordic Countries were set to be represented at the convention.

Due to the possibility to register on location the final numbers rose to 175 registrations from 15 different countries, 172 of which checked in at the convention. 75 attendees indicated that they would be fursuiting, whereas 50 suiters participated in the fursuit group photo. In total 63 attendees chose to register as sponsors for the convention.[7]
