Art Show

We are currently dealing with the issue of Artshow payment delays and are in the process of sending out the checks as soon as we can.  We cannot apologize enough for how bad our system was this past year of 2018.  However, I truly want to thank you all for your understanding and patience in this matter.                          

Artshow Co- Department Head


Welcome back to Otakon Art Show! Pardon our dust these last few weeks while we adjusted the site. We have a few important updates for 2018, so please be sure to read all the information and check back frequently for updates. Also, our logistics have finalized, so we will be prepared to answer helpdesk inquiries in full capacity now.

New For 2018

Artist registration and silent auction bidding will be taking place using an online system run and operated by Otakon staff. This means that bids will not be using barcodes this year, and you must have internet connectivity to bid in the silent auction. Bidding in the live auction will not require online access.

Please follow this link to review the full rules.

Registration Forms

Registration will require submitting a paper registration form, as well as completing an online profile. Otakon Art Show staff will be here to guide you through each step of the way. If you wish to complete your hard copy registration forms ahead of time, please download the PDF files below, print, and bring with you to Otakon.
