Hey everyone! Updates started rolling out pretty early this year and we don’t want you to miss out if you weren’t looking for them! Here are some reminders for upcoming deadlines!

Staff Applications:

Join the Ohayocon Staff and discover just how amazing it can be on the other side of the veil– every year our staffers pull together a show that thousands enjoy from thin air and we want you to be part of the magic trick! Staffers get a room for the weekend (shared with up to four others), a shirt, a special staff badge, 2 meals a day, exclusive meet-n-greets with guests and so much more! We’re looking for individuals who want to throw a great party, prioritize the fun of attendees, and have a pretty good customer service face.

Applications extended to Halloween (eek!), read more and APPLY HERE!

AMV League:

Once again we’re hosting the illustrious Vitamin H to run our AMV competition! Join the AMV League and duke it out on the battlefield of Adobe Premiere (or Vegas… or Final Cut… or Windows Movie Maker… or whatever it is you plan on making your AMV in…).

Applications close January 2nd, APPLY HERE!

Panelist Applications:

Are you an expert geek? A notorious nerd? You can shine at Ohayocon! We depend on volunteer panelists to discuss anime- and geek-related topics and be the first source of entertainment our attendees turn to. We’re looking for the best in local panelists and can’t wait to see what you have to offer.

Applications to be a panelist at Ohayocon 2019 close on Halloween (spooky!), APPLY HERE!

If I’m reading that right that’s ten guests!? That’s bonkers! We can’t wait to see them, and you, at Ohayocon this winter, stay cool out there!

Is it getting hot in here or is it just Aaron? In fact, I think he might just be roasting!?

We’ve just been burning to announce Aaron Dismuke as our Roastee of Honor for Ohayocon 2019! Read up on Aaron at his profile here!

Oh, and in lest toasty news applications to our Indie Showcase are open! If you’re a small game creator, digital or otherwise, and you want to show your stuff to tens of thousands of people don’t miss it!

Happy summer everyone! We hope you’re already having one heck of a time between warm weather, frosty treats, and plenty of excuses to get out of the house! We’ve got some summer updates for your viewing pleasure (and some special guest announcements coming later this week) so strap in, it’s update time.

First off…

Ohayocon is proud to introduce the Ohayocon Public Library, a multi-media feature, free and open to everyone during Ohayocon weekend!

We’re building up our inventory to include manga, art books, comics, RPG books, sci-fi and fantasy, music, movies, and more! Please see the library’s page to learn how you can donate your old media and earn credit towards a badge!

And second…

Ohayocon Artist Alley applications are open! Uh, they’ve actually been open for a few days now! If you want to throw your hat into the ring and apply to table at ohayocon be sure to check out our Artist Alley page.

That’s all for now! See you guys soon with another (roasting hot) update!

The passkey for the Hyatt Regency Columbus is now available! Reserve your room before they sell out!

Attention Campers!

Our room block at the Hyatt Regency Columbus is officially open for reservations on 5/25/2018 at 9am EST. Don’t miss your chance to camp in style (glamp?) at this premium location directly connected to our event space! The Passkey for booking will be coming soon.

Oh, and dont’ forget! Pre-Reg opens 5/21/18 at only 45$ for a full weekend pass to Ohayocon 2019! Prices go up in September (but don’t sleep on it, pre-reg grants you special access to all sorts of fun surprises that will be finalized closer to the event). See the full pricing chart here!

Attention campers!

The Ohayocon Road Team is heading to Acen this weekend to kick off this year’s pre-reg extravaganza! Yeah, you read that right! This year we’re not opening the flood gates in September like years before, this year we’re opening them in May! Betcha didn’t see that one coming, did you? You can invest in your 2019 weekend pass in person there or wait for the 21st when we’ll be opening sales online.

Head over to the admission and pricing page to see the deets and check out the super-cute camp-flavored graphic our art team whipped up for you guys!

Oh, and you thought we would open registration without dangling something shiny in front of your face? Think again; we’ve got six whole shiny things to dangle, baby! The first batch of Ohayocon 2019 guests is ready to view! We’re bringing back fan favorites and adding some impressive new names to the list.

Check out the Industry Speakers and Voice Actors pages for more details on these very special campers!

The website is officially up to date as of 3/20/2018! It’s been a bit of a slow start but we can’t wait to fill it up with all the fun new things in store! Keep your eyes peeled for a list of conventions we’ll be marketing at and when we’re opening up pre-reg!
