  PCAU 2015 Survey

Yesterday 08:34 PM
Posted by Pelenor

We’d once again like to thank everyone who came to PonyCon AU this year. We’ve said it before, but we really could not produce PCAU without all the support we receive from our fans and your passion for the show! After each PonyCon AU, we like to offer a survey for our attendees to fill out, that way they can let us know what they especially enjoyed and would like to see again, and advise us of anything they’d like to see changed or added in future years.

If you’d like to fill out this year’s survey, you can find it below.

Since there’s quite a few questions this year, we’ve decided to offer some prize packs for people who complete the survey. Thanks to our friends over at Ponified, we have some of their fantastic card packs as prizes. Just fill in and submit your answers and you’ll go in the running to win!

  Seaponies Paradise Weather Warning

We’re sure everyone travelling up to Surfers Paradise has read about or noticed the weather outside, as we’d like to give everyone another reminder to stay safe over the weekend. PonyCon AU and the Outrigger aren’t in the path of the TCMarcia, but we’re sure to get some wild wind and a lot of rain, so it’s advisable that everyone stay indoors.

If you do have to go outside - try to make it quick! Be careful of the wind and stay out of any water you see. The PCAU team is dedicated to bringing everyone a great weekend at the Convention, and we want everyone to stay safe and dry at PonyCon AU.

  Cathy Weseluck unable to attend Seaponies Paradise

We've got some very unfortunate news for everyone attending PonyCon AU this year. We were advised recently by Cathy Weseluck that due to sudden and unforeseen circumstances, she will regrettably no longer be able to attend the convention in Surfers Paradise. She is immensely disheartened and disappointed by this unavoidable decision, understands fully the disruption and disappointment for all of us that this may cause, but assures us if there were any way at all the situation could be rectified, she would do so.

We are deeply saddened that our attendees will be unable to meet her in person, and she has assured us that she is equally upset that she won’t be able to meet the attendees who have come to see her.

Despite the sad news, it’s not all doom and gloom. Cathy still wants to make an appearance and talk to everyone that has come up to Queensland for the weekend, and she’ll be stopping by via Skype on the Saturday and Sunday during the guest panels to answer some questions and talk about her voice acting career. Cathy will also be participating in a VIP question time on the Saturday evening.

Not only that, Cathy’s agency has secured for us a replacement second AND third guest: Ingrid Nilson the voice of Maud Pie, and GM Berrow, author of the popular My Little Pony chapter books and one of the newest show writers. We look forward to having them attend the convention, and thank them for setting aside the time to do so on such short notice. We’re dedicated to ensuring all of our attendees get the full value of their time at our convention, and we will work with all of our guests to ensure that nobody goes home disappointed.

If you went to PonyCon AU: Marebourne, you probably saw a few Ponified cards around! Ponified is a collectible card project by Kez (Graphite Sketch) and Brylian (Miss Chaos) that features My Little Pony OCs (original characters). It also functions as a regular set of playing cards when you have the full set!

Kez was kind enough to donate some of her art for the PCAU passes this year, so you're sure to see some of her art around the convention weekend! For more information about this awesome project and the two incredible artists, check out the Ponified Panel at PonyCon AU: Seaponies Paradise. "
