THERE. ARE. NO. WAIT. LIST. AT. ALL.
Please note: we are not enacting a full Jury system for selected applications. We are evaluating an artist based on adhering to the rules on having a Sales tax ID, adhering to the San Japan Artist Alley contract, and requested fan art rules. We are not evaluating artists based on the quality of the artwork or products for sale to be within Artist Alley then selecting them.
We are also actively watching groups like AANI when we are informed on tracers, lifters, or unauthorized reprinting sellers.
We will not be answering any questions on why an artist table was not approved or wasn’t selected. We listed above a majority of the reasons this may have happened but we will uphold all decision processes by San Japan staff. We will not be listing the approved list anymore. We will only be listing the final list of artists on August 10th, 2020.
If you have questions about your Sales Tax ID beyond what is listed in the button above, you must contact the Texas Comptroller’s Office. We can not answer any further Sales Tax IDs questions since we are not the Comptroller’s Office.
This will be the only way artists who want to get an artist table who were unable to signup. We will be selecting 4 winners and 15 finalists. Art Contest winners will win a 12′ x 10′ booth within Artist Alley plus 4 Artist Badges, a $1000 value. The booth arrangement will not be for sale to the general public.
Please take the time to read over our exhaustive FAQ which answers a vast majority of questions that we’ve received over the years. We truly try to answer every single question that we’ve received by inquiry in this FAQ. It is searchable by key terms too. The convention map is posted here to make sense of the locations listed.
