Other FAQ

When is load in and load out?

2019 Set Up Information TBA.

Do I need to show identification to claim my table?

item_nendo.png

All artists must show a government-issued, photo ID to exhibit at Artist Alley. If an artist is not able to produce a valid ID at check in, their table(s) will be held until 10:00 AM on Saturday, at which point the table(s) will be considered unclaimed and open for sale on a first-come, first-served basis. Accepted forms of ID include but are not limited to:

  • A state driver's license
  • State-issued identification card
  • A passport
  • Military ID

Other forms of Photo ID may be accepted at the discretion of the Department Head of Artist Alley. The name on the ID must match the name given during table registration, and the person must be at least 18 years old.

Can I loan my space/table?

An artist may not sell or rent their space to another artist or vendor. If an artist or vendor is found subletting, both the artist who registered the space and the person occupying the space will be evicted from the space immediately with no refund. All table signage should match the information that you registered with, or it will be regarded as a table transfer. If you need to opt out of your table, please notify the staff to make the table available to the wait-list. Also, please note that table costs are nonrefundable.

I'm a minor. Can I sell in the Artist Alley?

Yes, minors are welcome in our Artist Alley.  If the minor is an artist, a parent or guardian will need to provide a CA seller’s permit on the minor’s behalf and must be physically present for the duration of the event show dates.

Can I get a refund if I can't come?

As stated in our Refund Policy above, if Animanga receives such notice of cancellation on or before January 31, 2019 (the Early Cancellation Deadline), Animanga will issue a full refund.   

If Animanga receives such notice of cancellation on or before March 31, 2019 (the Late Cancellation Deadline), Animanga will retain fifty percent (50%) of the registration fee as a cancellation fee and will return the remaining fifty percent (50%) to the Artist.

Can I take Commissions?

Commissions are allowed, but all related dealings are between the artist and commissioner. Animanga is not a party in these dealings. As such, staff cannot assist you in locating either the commissioner or the artist you commissioned. Please make sure you get contact information for one another as part of your dealings.

Can I hold Giveaways?

Yes, giveaways and raffles at-con are allowed. However, all related dealings are between the artist and winner. Animanga is not a party in these dealings. As such, staff cannot assist you in locating either the winner or the artist. Please make sure you get contact information for one another as part of your dealings.

Can I have a helper with an Attendee Badge?

No.  Each Artist Alley Table comes with 2 Badges.  For an additional $10 fee, the Artist may purchase a third badge. No more than 3 individuals may be behind the table. Regular Attendee Badges do NOT provide access to Artist Alley during set-up and break-down hours, and do NOT provide permission to sit behind an Artist Alley table.

Can I have a candle behind my table? I like the smell.

No lighted candles or incense may be behind your table, as this is a fire hazard.  If you have a substance that provides a scent or fragrance that disturbs surrounding artists/attendees, you will be asked to remove it.

Can I play music?

Overly loud music, videos, etc. will not be tolerated. If the amount of sound coming from a table is found to be disruptive as determined by the staff, the artist will be asked to lower the volume. If asked by surrounding artists to stop playing the music/video, the artist must stop immediately.  Further noise violations can result in the artist being removed from the Artist Alley. Please be respectful of those around you.

Can you mail my badge?

No. All vendors must pick up their badges at the event when they claim their space.

I was accepted but haven't received a table assignment. What should I do?

Table assignments will be announced closer to the show date. Returning artists will have table priority. Other artists are assigned on a first-come, first-serve basis according to application submission, review and approval. Discrepancies and incomplete forms may be subject to assignments placed on hold. Assignments may be subject to changes depending on expected table content and seating preferences. If it's been over a month since you applied and haven't received an acceptance email, please contact us, as this is likely an error.
