As SacAnime grows and evolves, we wanted to give artists more opportunities to showcase their work. A brand new Cover/badge contest has been created to replace the previous digital art contest. This will give the submissions the opportunity to be used on the program cover as well as the badges for the show. The new tee shirt contest works in much the same way as the winning art submission will be used for SacAnime’s official tee shirt. We are very excited about the new contests!

3rd Place Prize: 2 General Admission Tickets to next SacAnime

Art MUST be completed on the artist’s own time and with the artist’s own materials. We will not have space or art supplies for artists to draw their entries on-the-spot. Art Submissions should be brought to the Art Submission Table located in Artist Alley. (Artist Alley is at the Sacramento Convention Center located at the back of the Exhibitors Hall.) When you arrive, please follow the table instructions for preparing your submission.

Entries are due by 2:00pm on September 5th (Saturday of the convention), winners will be announced at 4:00pm.

We’re requiring photocopied submissions for our Amateur Art Contest for two important reasons. The first is security. Your original artwork is irreplaceable. SacAnime doesn’t want to take the chance that something might happen to it while in our care. The second reason is that we would like to display your work throughout the entire length of the convention, not just until the winners are announced on Saturday afternoon. Once the convention is over, we will shred all photo copied entries. If you need a photocopy of your original while attending the convention, there is a Fedex Office only a block away from the Sacramento Convention Center. Color copies are .59 each.
