  • Artist Alley slots are 5 feet by 30 inches. 

  • Pre-Con Reservation slots are guaranteed.

  • Upon applying, please select if you wish to be waitlisted if you are not accepted. Wait-list Lotteries will be conducted daily for any unclaimed spots. 

  • A seller may use only the space designated in the Artist Alley at any given time. Spaces that appear to be abandoned after thirty minutes may be claimed by another artist with the approval of the Artist Alley Coordinator. Spaces may not be reserved on behalf of others. 

  • Artist Alley vendors may be asked to leave the alley at any time for reasons including but not limited to those described in the convention code of conduct or in the published vendor policies.


 -----Electric power----- 


  • Electrical outlets will not be available in the Artist Alley

  • The outlets in the area are monitored by the convention center. If an outlet near a table is found to have been tampered with and/or used, the nearest table will incur a charge for unauthorized use. 


-----Permitted Merchandise-----


  • The only items that may be sold in the Artist Alley are goods created by the seller. These items must also be able to be produced while sitting at the designated space, and active work is strongly encouraged.


  • No weapons may be sold in the Artist Alley. 

  • No pirated works may be sold in the Artist Alley. 

  • No Adult material can be publicly visible. 

-Recommendations include the use of folders, binders, and strategically placed stickers. All sales of “Adult” material must have an ID age verification. 


-----Display and Behavior Guidelines-----


  • Anthro SouthEast has complied with state and local laws for displaying adult material. 

  • No such material may be displayed openly, and mature/adult art should be grouped separately (i.e. in its own binder), with explicit parts of any artwork must be discreetly hidden. 

  • The seller is responsible for keeping unsuitable material out of the hands of minors. 

  • Membership badges will clearly indicate if the buyer is under age. 


  • Artist Alley spots are restricted to one person. 

  • No loud or distracting displays are permitted. 

  • Displays must also not exceed 30 inches(2 wires frame boxes) in height from the table. 


  • The seller's belongings and displays must remain on the seller's designated table, or else directly underneath the table; Anthro Southeast will not be held liable for loss of belongings or merchandise.

  • Floor stands, free-standing displays, or any objects that cannot be displayed on the table are not allowed. 

  • Due to space constraints, loiterers may be asked to make way for customers, especially during peak times. 

  • Sellers may not solicit sales in the Artist Alley outside of the seller's designated table. 

  • The Artist Alley Director will have final say on all disputes in the Artist Alley. All rules laid out in the attendee code of conduct also apply in the Artist Alley! 




  • Complaints, concerns, issues, and suggestions should be directed toward the Artist Alley Coordinator. Posts on social media and conversations with non-staff members tend to work a lot slower if at all, if you are unable to contact the Coordinator, grab the attention of any staff member and they will have either the Coordinator or a Board member speak with you as soon as possible. “If we do not know (i.e., are not made aware) what is wrong, how are we able to effectively fix it?”




  • Payment of the Table fee is agreement to Anthro SouthEast Vendor policies, any break of the above guidelines is grounds for removal from the Artist Alley without refund. 

  • Warning will be given where warranted, but not guaranteed. Anthro SouthEast reserves the right to change these policies without notice, though the policies will be available on at any time for review.
