2017 Convention Artist Survey
This survey collects data regarding artists and artisans vending at North American fandom conventions in 2017.

We are NOT collecting data for conventions in other countries at this time.

Results will be compiled and presented at KIRISKA.com, the "Artist Alley Network International" Facebook group, and "howtobeaconartist" @ Tumblr. You can see past years' data here: http://kiriska.com/blog/tag/artist-alley-survey/

All submissions are ANONYMOUS and artists are encouraged to bookmark this page and respond for each convention they attend in 2017.

If you'd like to receive an email when the data and results are available, sign up here: http://eepurl.com/bONeSP You'll also receive quarterly reminders to add data for any new conventions you've attended.

This survey will be accepting responses through January 15th, 2018.

Direct questions, comments, and inquiries to research@kiriska.com.

Which 2017 convention did you exhibit at?
Please write the convention's full name, e.g. "Anime Expo" instead of "AX". If the event occurs more than annually, please denote season, e.g. "SacAnime Summer." If an organisation holds conventions in more than one location, please designate the location, e.g. "FanExpo Toronto." Please fill out this survey for one convention at a time. Please do not fill out this survey for events that did not occur in 2017.
