Art Contest & Charity Auction
The Art Contest is for finished art and projects, whether they be fan-based or original. We accept both two and three dimensional artwork done in the themes of Anime/Manga, Asian culture, Video Games, Science Fiction, Fantasy, Halloween/Dia de los Muertos, and variations thereof. Art entries range from 2D art styles: drawings, paintings, digital graphics, photography, etc.; to 3D sculptures (clay, wood, etc.), sewing/crochet (amigarum, plushies, etc), and various craft projects. Artists are invited to not only show off their work, but also to sell their pieces (a minimal percentage consignment fee will applied). Artists aged 14 and under will be in a special Junior category and be eligible for the 'Best Junior' award. All art will be voted on by the convention attendees and eligible to win awards and prizes for Best 2-D, Best 3-D, Best Junior (artists age 14 and under), and Best of Show; there is also an award given to an art-piece chosen by one of our Guests. Voting takes place all through Friday and Saturday, so entering Fri does give a slight advantage.
There is a limit of 5 entries per person. You must read all the entry rules. You must have a convention badge. Artwork is only accepted in person at the convention during art drop-off times.
The Art Contest will be hosting a silent charity auction to raise money for breast cancer research at the Huntsman Cancer Institute. Charity items are not part of the voting contest nor will the artist receive any money from sold pieces. ALL proceeds will go to the charity. Please email the Art Show if you would like to donate anything to the Charity Auction.
