Are we getting 10x10 booths again for 2010?
Yes.Each Artist Alley space is a 10’ x 10’ booth that includes one (1) table (approximately 8’ x 30”) and two (2) chairs. Power is not included this year. You can purchase it for additional fee.
Am I allowed to move the table, have additional tables and/or freestanding displays?
Absolutely.You can bring additional tables and stands. Please be aware that any freestanding table displays can only be four (4) feet. Any other displays must be approved by manager.
Can I sell fan art?
Yes. As long as you composed it by your own hand (no tracing or related activities), you are allowed to sell your own work as long as it does not violate any copyright laws. If there is any infringements, you will be require to remove it.
I produce my own products, is that considered commercial production?
No. Anything that you produce with your own hands (physically or design and sent to a small company to produce for you) is perfect for Artist Alley. However, products produced by a company not owned by you or you did not have any hand in the design is not okay.
Am I required to tear down everyday, or is my table secure overnight?
The space is closed every night along with the Dealer's Hall. All access doors are secured and patrolled during off-hours.
Is table sharing allow?
Absolutely. Even though AA will have more tables this year, we always end up with more artists then there is space. There is always
newbies..um... new artists wanting to get in for the first time. It is always a fabulous idea to share with friends, new and old alike to maximize variety, space and experience. Besides, it gets exhausting working your table by yourself all three days.
Can I have more then four people at my booth?
You can have up to three additional Artist Alley badges purchased with your booth, but this does not restrict how many total can be selling at any one time. If you have a group of friends, or if you want represent other artists,that is fine. But please talk to the AA manager first so she can help you with any details. Anyone beyond the three Artist Alley badges that comes with the table will need to pre-register through the website or at the door. They will also not be allowed to be in the AA before or after hours.
Can I display my yaoi/hentai or otherwise adult material?
No. you can have adult material at your table, but it must not be available for minors to see, touch or otherwise experience. You may have a sign stating that you have such materials and once you have checked their ID, they can see it. The AA manager will also distribute pin-back buttons that will roughly state "please ask me about my adult material" that you can wear. Please refer to the contract details about the consequences of any violation of this requirement. If you still have questions, please contact the AA manager.
