Banzai Red Carpet Awards:
This year we will be hosting a Red Carpet Awards ceremony and presenting the winners of the Anime, Fanfiction, Manga, Yumeiro Patissiere contests and more. Come show your support for Anime Banzai's talented guests and find out who Anime Banzai's favorites for the last year have been. Please email your choices to with "Red Carpet Awards" in the subject line.

There will ALSO be a kiosk setup at the convention to take your votes on Friday and Saturday. This will be located in the Horizon Lobby (the really BIG open space), just outside Card Gaming and near Main Events.

At the Kiosk, you can enter a contest - by identifying all the characters on the mural. The person who names the most characters wins! Ties will be decided by a simple ballot draw.

First Prize:
A Queen Emeraldas Ship valued at $200.

Second Prize:
A Mass Effect Ship (The Normandy) valued at $35.
Not bad...
Not too shabby!

These prizes will be given away at the Red Carpet Awards on Sunday, and you must be present to win - no exceptions.

Cosplay Repair Station:
There will be a kiosk set up to help assist with minor costume tears and other con-related battle damage. This will be located in the Horizon Lobby (the really BIG open space), just outside Card Gaming and near Main Events.

Attention - Volunteers needed! We're looking for people to help out at the repair station. Shifts run 1-2 hours, and can be worked out in advance. Please send an email to with "Cosplay Repair Station" in the subject line if you're interested.

Opening Ceremonies:
Come help us get this party started, and find out what’s new at Banzai 2012! Enjoy live entertainment, and maybe walk away with a prize or two.

Closing Ceremonies:
All good things must come to an end, but come and join us for one last hoorah. Share the best of Banzai 2012 with your fellow con-goers, and get a sneak-peek of what 2013 will bring. (Stick around afterward for the convention feedback panel, as well.)

Photo Booth:
This year in the Cirrus Atrium (when it’s not being used for other events) come and take a picture with Death City (Soul Eater) as your background. You may also opt for a more traditional setting, such as Cherry Blossoms. Whatever your choice, come and memorialize your 2012 visit to Anime Banzai with a picture.

If you're interested in helping out with Events, or have a great idea you'd love to see, please let us know!
