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
Marketplace Applications for Artists and Merchants is open! Get your application in today as space in the Marketplace is limited. You can find everything you need on the Anime Marketplace page, but don’t hesitate to contact us if you have questions!
