Autographs

FanimeCon has designated a special area for our attendees as well as Guests of Honor to create cherished memories and obtain autographs. Be sure to stop by when planning your FanimeCon experience! The schedule (found online and in your Pocket Guide) will have the times and places where our Guests of Honor will sign autographs. Please keep social distancing and our other new policies in mind when attending autograph sessions. Remember, these people are our guests and should be treated with the utmost respect. Kindness and smiles go a long way! Have fun and enjoy your time with this year’s Guests of Honor!

  2. Attendees may only line up after their call-time as indicated via email.

How It Works

Signing Up for a Session:

You will be asked for your badge number, name, and email for confirmation purposes when signing up. These must match the information you used when registering for your badge. Then you may select the sessions you wish to sign up for. The sign-up period for each session closes 90 minutes before it starts.

After Signing Up:

Once you submit your information, you will receive a confirmation email with instructions to follow. After you complete the instructions in the confirmation email, you will be entered into the drawing(s) for your spot in line for each autograph session selected.

Each drawing will occur 60 minutes before the start of the session, at which point you will receive another email notifying you of your spot and when you should return to the Autographs area. You will also receive an SMS notification at this point with the same information as the email if you entered your phone number into the form during sign up.

Checking In for your Session:

Upon returning to Autographs, you will proceed to have your badge checked to receive a number card indicating your spot in line. Autographs staff will use this to organize the line and will collect it from you when you reach the front of the line during the autograph session or if you leave the Autographs area for any reason.

After all those who signed up have gone through a session, depending on various session factors, we may have time available to take walk-ins. If you were not able to sign up for a session, you are welcome to visit us and inquire about walk-in spots for a session. This is case dependent and not at all guaranteed.
