What's going on here?South Park Big Bang runs collaborative fanworks challenges, where artists and writers come together to produce new and exciting works. So far these events have included Big Bangs and Reverse Mini-Bangs; who knows what the future might bring!
In a fandom Big Bang, authors write long fics and are then matched up with artists who illustrate their stories. (If you're curious, you can read more about fandom Big Bangs here.)
The archive for South Park Big Bang 2012 (SPBB 2012) opened on April 8, 2012 and continued with weekly updates throughout the month, with a final update on April 29th. The Art Gallery premiered on May 31st as the centerpiece of SPBB 2012: Aftershocks.
Thanks to everyone who participated, SPBB 2012 contributed over 100 new pieces of fanart and over 1,000,000 words of new fanfic to the South Park fandom!
Our latest event is the South Park Reverse Mini-Bang 2012. A Reverse Mini-Bang is a variation on a fandom Big Bang: it's still a collaboration between artists and writers, but this time the art inspires the story (the "reverse") and the stories are shorter (the "mini").
The SPRMB 2012 archive launched on October 28, 2012, with 24 new works of fanart and 34 new fanfics.
