Artists’ Alley

The talent found in our Artists’ Alley never disappoints. Be it the skillful, diverse artwork on display or the creation of new friends and network opportunities, there is always something good to be had by browsing Artists’ Alley.  You may even find yourself back there multiple times.

? Applications for Anime Milwaukee 2020’s Artists’ Alley will open June 15th-July 1st, 2019. ?

Anime Milwaukee’s 2020 Artists’ Alley is 90% juried and 10% lottery. This is to try and encourage new artists that may just be starting out in AA. We will jury all entries first, and then do a lottery on those that are not selected as part of the jury process. This will of course be kept confidential.

We are fanart friendly! You can still 100% have fanart in the Artists’ Alley, although we encourage artists to have original art too. See the Artists FAQ below for more details.

*NEW* for 2020: Premium tables have been added to our Artists’ Alley. Premium would get prime placement in the artist alley, two tables and two badges. There will be about 10 spots available. Judging criteria will be the same as regular artist alley tables but with more emphasis on booth set-up. Please note, no applicant without booth set-up photos will be accepted to Premium.

Shared tables are allowed, but both artists must be included on the application, and please include links to both galleries. Unfortunately shared tables are not allowed in the premium row.

Standard tables are $150, one badge is included.
Premium tables are $300, two badges are included.
Tables are 6ft x 2ft each.

Please anticipate a response from us Late July/Early August 2019!

Vendors Hall

Dealers' Hall

Anime Milwaukee wouldn’t be what it is without our awesome selection of vendors and we’re always looking for new & exciting companies and products to offer our attendees. We especially welcome those vendors who want to show their love and offer Anime Milwaukee Exclusive items.
