Child Rate for Registration
Did you know that a child badge has a lower rate this year? That’s right! Whether pre-reg or at the convention, a child badge is only $35 for ages 6-12.
Spot the Ninja
Spot the Ninja is a hotel-wide activity that Family Programming will be hosting this year. We will have small decals of ninjas up around the hotel. Prizes will be given out to families who can spot the ninjas! Prize levels will depend on the number of ninja decals they find. Others are welcome to participate as well and will receive a sticker for their participation.

With the many advances of technology (for example photography) many changes have occurred. These services in the past were utilized by a select group of hobbies/professions because of the cost factor, but now are used by many people for profit. There are many who are offering services at AnimeIowa which include Photo shoots, commissions, and costumes. These services are great, but they also must keep in the confines of Iowa law for sales of goods and services.
AnimeIowa has in place a policy to include these services in the convention experience. Please review the AnimeIowa 2015 Paid Services Policy and address any questions to: Marketplace.dept@animeIowa.com
