Does my art have to be manga/anime style?

Nope! Obviously we'd love to see some manga in there, but you won't be disqualified if you have a different style.

I make a different kind of art (quilling, splatter art, kirigami etc), can I still enter?

Sure! We're primarily interested in showcasing artists who draw, paint or make digital images but we'll definitely consider it.

I mostly draw fanart, is that okay?

Absolutely, we know events like Anime Expo are all about the fans, and we're happy to support fan efforts.

You said no R-rated material would be accepted; if I've drawn it but don't include it in my entry, is that okay?

For sure. As long as you leave it out (or have enough other images to qualify), we don't mind!

Can I use my banner/promotional displays at the booth?

This one's a soft maybe. Space is limited, but we'll work with you as much as we can to make sure your position at the table is well set up and visible to attendees. Just send us a photo of your idea or usual setup and we'll take a look!

Can I bring a friend or relative to help me at my table?

Yes, but they will have to buy their own general admission badge.

I'm under 18 but I really, really want to win and I'm really good at art! Can I enter the contest?

You can enter, but unfortunately we have to restrict all winners to 18+. Don't be discouraged though, if you upload your work to POP Comics we might feature you in our POP Showcase!
