Artist Alley Form - Anime Detour
Artist Alley thanks you for your interest in our Artist Alley for Anime Detour. Please be aware we get roughly four times the number of submissions than tables we can provide each year. We do our best to select from a diversified amount of artists of various styles, genres, mediums, and talent levels. This means we may not accept only the top talent but we feel it is very important to have not only a wide variety of artwork but to also give new artists a chance to grow and promote themselves. Not everyone's tastes in artwork are the same, so we do our best to accommodate as much as we can. However please note the decisions of acceptance into Artist Alley are at the discretion of the staff of Artist Alley. Artist Alley is as much for the artists as it is for our thousands of guests we get each year. We are always open to specific suggestions to make this process better any and all suggestions for improving our process or general questions please send to (

Please do yourself a favor and answer each question as helpfully as possible. We get a large number of entries each year and many of them have e-mail addresses that bounce, URLs that do not resolve, and answers that do not help us understand why we should select you (i.e.: Describe your artwork? -- "OMG I love Artist Alley and my items always go over well, please pick me!"). Please be as detailed as possible about each question.

We have a limited number of spots that have access to power outlets, as a result we may not be able to an outlet to everyone. Anime Detour does not provide extension cords, power splitters, or Graffers Tape. A power outlet may need to be shared among tables so ensure you bring your own if you require power.
Please provide a url or two to images of your artwork
Please provide a few urls of artwork you plan to be selling. If you have an image of a previous setup similar to what you will do at Detour this is beneficial as well so we can better diversify the alley.

It is up to you to understand what is permissible for sale under current laws. You agree to be responsible for any issues that arise from items you sell.

Proxy Selling Disclaimer *
In order to foster a better relationship between artists and fans, Anime Detour Artist Alley does not allow Proxy Selling. Proxy Selling is when you will not be present to sell your art work and instead send a representative to sell. Please be aware, we do allow helpers to assist in running your table from time to time since we know artists need breaks. We also allow groups of artists to share tables and sell each other's work, but said artist should be at a table for a fair amount of time.
Table Positioning Disclaimer *

Hours Disclaimer *
Please be aware of the Artist Alley Hours, we want a full experience for our artists and guests. We understand you may need to leave your table unattended or might miss opening times due to many reasons. We do ask you try to have your table occupied during the majority of the open hours as possible. Leaving your table unoccupied for large stretches, or abandoned may at the discretion of the Artist Alley staff limit your chances the following year, or in rare cases may impact your ability to sell the current year. We generally will only enact this in cases of repeated or very long periods of in inoccupancy.
Table Layout Disclaimer *
To ensure everyone has about the same space and to ensure we get enough artists in the alley as we can, we do enforce table boundaries. The table is roughly 6'X30". Space is provided for up to 2 people behind the table. We limit the number of people behind the table to 2 at a time. We cannot allow the table to be moved/removed (rare exceptions are allowed, please select appropriate option and discuss in comments field at bottom of survey). Space is limited behind the table. Behind the table is often shared with the table behind you or against a wall. Please contact Artist Alley Staff for more details.
