Concerning the submission process:

  • If you try to email in your application instead of using the form it will not be counted.
  •  You will need at least one reference image for each type of product you wish to sell.
  • Make sure to fill in the box under photo links asking you to name the series, anime, game, manga, or what your art or craft item is from. If it is an original creation, please note that instead.
  • If you are having trouble with the submission form let us know immediately, DO NOT wait until the last minute or until after signup is over.
  • Special requests for extra space, large groups, area placement requests, and use of outlets must be made when you apply. If you do not make your special requests at signup we may not be able to fill them.
  • All table winners must be pre-registered before April 15th 2016. You will lose your table space if you’re not pre-registered before April 21st when contracts go out. If you have won a table, email Yuki with your name and registration order number to secure your table spot.
  • Groups may only apply once, anyone found submitting a group application with different members as the sender and the others listed as co-applicants will be disqualified.

Wait Lists:

  • There are two wait-lists, one for if space opens up before the con, and the other is for the last minute wait-list. Sometimes people cancel just days before the convention and some, that without a word, just never show; the last minute wait-list is for these instances. You may apply for both wait-lists if you wish but the last minute wait-list is only for those who plan on attending already and have preregistered for a badge.
  • If you make the last minute wait-list you will be contacted once pre-reg closes to see if you’re still interested and to be on the list. If you are, you will be contacted in the event a spot opens between the closing of pre-reg and the second day of the con. Please note that this is not a guaranteed spot; just a chance to fill a spot in case of a vacancy. If you’re applying for the last minute you should already be preregistered as an attendee.

Table Spaces:

  • Half table spaces come only come with one chair and the space allotted is 3×3. We can squeeze a second chair in if requested but no more. If a half table group spills over into their neighbors area we will have to ask said group to condense both product and personnel down accordingly.
  • Single table spaces come with 2 chairs and we often see groups at these tables. These are available for new and returning artists alike.
  •  The 1.5 and 2 table spaces are very limited and come with 3-4 chairs. These are available for returning artists only.
  • Requesting an extra chair means only one chair. If you need more, request more.
  • You can request a certain spot in AA, and you can request extra space but it is very limited.
