Ohayocon's theme for 2016 is SCIENCE! Science is an integral part of any good anime or video game, from "arcane" arts like alchemy and herbalism (the foundations for modern chemistry) to astronomy and engineering! Dress up as your favorite doctors and (mad) scientists or push the envelope as a mecha pilot or a mechanic. The sky and your imagination are the only limits with the SCIENCE theme!

Artists – Sorry for the delays. The jury process is complete and notifications will go out tonight for acceptance, wait list, and denials.

Hey all! Just a quick reminder that applications for Ohayocon 2016’s Artist Alley will no longer be accepted after August 26th, so be sure you get your applications in as soon as possible if you want to have a chance at getting a table!
The application can be found HERE. Remember, you don’t pay until your table is approved (we’re a juried Alley, after all!)
Ohayocon 2016’s Artist Alley applications will open on August 5th, 2015 and run through August 26th, 2015. Remember that Ohayocon’s Artist Alley is a NO FANART event – portfolios containing fanart will be disqualified.
The price per table is $150 this year. Each table includes an 8×8 space with a 6-foot table and up to two badges. Your table partner, if also an artist, must also include their portfolio and that portfolio must also comply to the rules for full consideration. We are a juried Alley, so all applications will be reviewed by a panel of 4 judges before approvals are sent out. This process may take up to 2 weeks.
Hey everyone! It’s been a little while, but we’ve been hard at work planning and meeting and discussing how to make Ohayocon 2016 better than ever! Very soon, we’ll be releasing the information regarding pre-registration including pricing tiers, group rates, vendor and artist booth costs, and more! So keep your eyes on our website for the most up-to-date information and news updates as they become available!
