FAQ:

How can I get an autograph this year?

For a chance to receive an autographed FanimeCon poster, enter the Autographs Giveaway by filling out the entry form by 11:59:59 pm (PDT) on May 30, 2021. After the virtual convention, 150 entries will be randomly selected to receive an autographed FanimeCon poster. The posters will be shipped to the attendee’s provided address within the United States, U.S. Territories, and APO addresses.

Can I enter the giveaway more than once?

To be fair to all attendees, no duplicate entries are allowed. Any duplicate entries will be deleted prior to the drawing.

Can FanimeCon staff enter the giveaway?

Yes, FanimeCon staff are welcome to enter the giveaway using a different form.

Who will be autographing the posters?

The posters will be autographed by FanimeCon 2021 Guest of Honor, Midorikawa Hikaru. You can learn more about this year’s Guests of Honor here.

Do I need to purchase a FanimeCon badge in order to enter the Autographs Giveaway?

Yes, each attendee entering the giveaway is required to enter their valid FanimeCon badge number on the entry form. All badge numbers will be verified prior to the drawing.

How can I sign up for the giveaway if I don’t have a badge?

We will accept handwritten postcards/letters that provide your full name, email address, a valid US shipping address, and a short statement on your love for Midorikawa’s works. These must be mailed to FanimeCon 2021 Autographs Giveaway, 798 Auzerais Ave, San Jose, CA 95126 and received by 11:59:59 pm (PDT) on May 28, 2021 (the first day of FanimeCon 2021). Only one entry will be valid per mailing address. Please ensure the information is legible so that we can email you a confirmation for your entry upon review.

Why are we only shipping within the United States, U.S. Territories, and APOs?

Due to the various logistical challenges with shipping the posters safely and reliably, we are limiting shipping to the United States, U.S. Territories and APO addresses.

What if I enter the wrong shipping address?

When winners are announced, we will confirm that the shipping address entered is both valid and the correct address for you, so there will be an opportunity to double check that the address we have is correct. Additionally, you may email us to change the address you originally entered. Address changes must be received within five (5) business days of being contacted.

If I win an autographed poster, will I be able to track the shipment?

Yes, you will receive an email with tracking information upon shipment.

Something happened to the package or delivery, either I didn’t receive it or it arrived damaged. What should I do?

Check the tracking information to see if there is information on the package’s location. Contact your local post office if the package appears to be stalled. While the item will be packaged for safe shipment, there is always a risk that it will be damaged or lost during the shipping process. Unfortunately due to the unique nature and limited quantity of the item, we are unable to offer replacements. By entering the giveaway, you agree to assume these risks.

Can I request a different item to be autographed, like an artwork that I have or a Shikishi board?

Due to the unique circumstances of this year’s Autographs process, autographs will only be available on FanimeCon prints.

Can I get the autograph personalized?

Unfortunately, autographed FanimeCon prints cannot be personalized. The posters are signed in advance of the giveaway, so our Guest of Honor will not be personalizing the autographs.

How will giveaway winners be determined?

Winners will be determined by a random drawing from the pool of valid entries submitted by the entry deadline.

Meet the Guests

Meet the Guests is an exclusive event where select FanimeCon attendees are able to dine with Guests of Honor and chat with them over hors d’oeuvres. Due to the virtual nature of FanimeCon 2021 we are not able to hold the event this year, but we hope to re-introduce our Meet the Guests event in future years!
