We operate on the principle that all artists are automatically accepted for the convention once they have completed their booking. However, should there be any issues, we reserve the right to inform artists within 7 days of their booking if they cannot attend. In such rare instances, rest assured that your deposit will be fully refunded. This method streamlines the process for both organisers and participants, making it unnecessary to send out acceptance communications to over a hundred artists, and instead focusing on the few instances where attendance is not possible. This ensures that artists have clarity and can plan accordingly, while we can maintain the high standards and smooth operation of the convention.

PLEASE also ensure each file and license is clearly named with the artist's name that the file represents.

Please DO NOT attempt to book Accommodation through the hotel directly as you will be charged full price for your rooms. 

WALK UP SUNDAY - We are looking for artists that are interested in not taking ANY booking for Sunday until they arrive at the convention. We call this 'Walk up Sunday' and we are doing this in order to take our convention back to the 'good old days' where you could attend the convention, pick an artist and get some ink on the day!
