2019 Staff Applications Are Open!

November 28, 2018

Staff applications for FanimeCon 2019 are now up at apply.fanime.com! If you’re interested in getting involved and helping out, please take a look and apply for any staff positions you might be interested in!

Initial Registration Issues Fixed

October 25, 2018

Registration had issues initially with processing orders, but it is now fixed. Please email fanimeconsupport@cmrus.com or registration@fanime.com if you have any further issues. We are deeply sorry for the issues, and thank you for your patience.

Housing priority will still be granted based on when your registration was first entered, not when it was paid for, so this will not effect anyone’s housing priority window.

Thank you!
