Kumoricon's Artist Alley utilizes a jury process to accept applications. Applications received by the closure date will be chosen based on the jury process without regard to when they were submitted. The jury process will begin following the close of Artist Alley applications with notifications of status being sent to all applicants. The jury process will be based on (in order of importance):

  2. Variety of products/offerings/artwork (categories of many types)
  3. Professionalism and completeness of portfolio

Artists should be ready to provide:

  • Basic contact information, including an up-to-date email address
  • Examples of work through photos of booths at prior events (this is highly preferred), DeviantArt/YouTube tutorial/websites with example art, or any online link that gives examples of at least 10 pieces of work.*

*Note: If your examples display violations described in the Artist Alley contract (linked below once applications open), your application will be denied, unless you mention in the "additional information" field that that piece is excluded.
