Selection Process: Artist selection is curated by our Exhibitor Hall and Artist Alley Jury. Our goal is to provide our attendees with a great variety of art produced by a diverse array of top-quality artists.
Selection dates: We do not have a set date when selections are completed. Selections are made once we have received enough applications to form a sufficient selection pool. You will be notified via email to the address you submitted with your application if you are accepted. Please do not email or message to ask when your application will be reviewed, as this will not speed up your application.
One Table - $125 (Limit one per artist or studio)
Each artist or studio may reserve a maximum of one table, upon Jury approval, in order to ensure a variety of art and provide opportunities for as many artists as possible.
We are unable to accommodate placement requests, including requests to be next to another artist. Resident Artist tables are assigned in advance; the remainder of Artist Alley tables are provided on a first-come first-choice basis.
The Artist Alley is curated. Table sharing with another artist is prohibited unless both artists have been approved. If you wish to share a table, please submit a combined application.
All items sold in the Artist Alley must be designed and/or produced by the Artist. Prints, manufactured pins, etc. are fine so long as they are original designs created by the Artist.

One 6-foot table and two chairs are provided per Artist.
Two Artist badges are provided per Artist. Artist badges allow access to the Exhibit Hall during setup and restocking hours; selling an Artist badge is strictly prohibited. Additional helper badges are available for purchase on site.

Bootleg artwork and products are prohibited in the Exhibit Hall and Artist Alley. Generally, if only a few items appear to be in violation, an Artist or Exhibitor will be asked to remove the items from display and sale. If an Artist or Exhibitor's display is largely or entirely comprised of infringing items, at the sole judgment of Anime Dallas management, they will be ejected from the Exhibit Hall without refund.
Anime Dallas reserves the right to eject any Artist or Exhibitor who violates any of these rules, without refund, at its sole discretion.
No placement/location requests are accepted. Vendor spaces are assigned in advance. Submission of this application does not constitute an agreement between Anime Texas, INC and Applicant.
