Tis the Season to Register for AnimeIowa 2016! Once again we are offering a holiday rate of $40 from December 1st thru Dec. 31st. Keep watching for more updates to the website and the Forums! We look forward to seeing you all again in July!
November 17, 2015
Just want to let everyone know that your execs and staff are already hard at work to bring you the best AnimeIowa ever in 2016! Go check out the Guests page, for example!
We’ll be rolling out new information and updating pages on this website, so be sure to look for changes in the upcoming weeks. And don’t forget to visit the forums, where you can get in on the discussions and make your voice heard. Speaking of being heard, you should also look into becoming staff and REALLY make an impact on the success of the convention.
That’s all for now, gotta go clean my costumes!

Staying at the Marriott for AI 2015? Wondering exactly what we could possibly do to make your hotel stay just as great as the convention itself??
You’re in just the right place! The Marriott is throwing two contests for this year! These contests apply to any Marriott reservation terminating on Sunday, and that’s a lot of excitement for quite a few of our attendees! Click here: Marriott 2015 Contest! for details!

“The arrogance of man is thinking nature is in our control, and not the other way around.”
Friday night of Anime Iowa, children ages 4-12 are encouraged to come and bring out their inner “Kaiju” (monster) to completely annihilate a small cardboard city!
While the destruction is left up to our smaller Kaiju’s of Anime Iowa, we have an art contest that is open to all ages! Break out your creativity and submit a cardboard building to us for a chance to win some “monstrous” prizes!
Crayons, sharpies, paint, any medium, multiple entries is fine as well. Please no sharp attachments to the boxes however. (We’d hate to puncture our little kaiju’s claws)
There will be both a children’s division and adults division for best cardboard structures, 1st and 2nd place in each. The winners will also have their box-buildings displayed in the art show for the duration of the weekend for all to see!
If interested in participating in this contest, all box buildings must be dropped off to the Family Programming room by 5pm on Friday. You may also bring it to the convention flat if you wish for traveling purposes, as we will have tape on hand to re-set up boxes.
Any questions may be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or posted to the forum thread for Family Programming.
We hope to see your creativity and little ones for Godzilla-town at Anime Iowa!
