THANK YOU for your interest in being a part of the Artist Alley at Florida Anime Experience! Artists and creators of original content are an important part of the fan convention experience and each year we’ve celebrated this fact by offering discounted space for local talent to sell their commissions, prints, and other handcrafted goods. Each Artist Alley space comes with:
One (1) six foot table in the Artist Alley area
Two (2) chairs
One (1) weekend pass to the convention labeled “Artist”
PLEASE NOTE that our Artist Alley is juried. This means that we review all applications and a committee from the event operations staff chooses the artists who will be approved. Florida Anime Experience does this in order to make sure a variety of art styles are made available to the attendees – thus avoiding creators all selling the same style/presentation. This also helps artists by making sure they artwork is presented as a unique part of the event!
Each space is $100 (plus Eventbrite fees). There is a limit of one (1) table per artist. This is due to floor plan logistics and to be fair to other artists.
Up to two (2) additional Artist Alley badges may be purchased (per space) at $25 each.
Power and Internet access are available. (Please see Section V of the agreement for details).
Please read and fill out 2016 Artist Application Form and please (PLEASE!) print clearly. You should note that your application is not considered complete until after your space is paid for in full. No exceptions!
If you have questions about anything on this form, please call us at (407) 536-9272 or you can email Art@FloridaAnime.com.
Hours and policies can be subject to change. The most accurate and up to date information will be posted here at all times.
