Thank You for Your Overwhelming Support – Artist Alley Sold Out at Anime Toronto!

April 8, 2023

Hello, fellow anime enthusiasts!

We are thrilled to announce that the Artist Alley at Anime Toronto has sold out! We received an overwhelming number of applications from incredibly talented artists, and we want to express our heartfelt gratitude to each and every one of you for your interest and support. We are truly humbled by the incredible response we received.

As much as we would have loved to accommodate all the artists who applied, unfortunately, we have limited space available in our Artist Alley. We understand that some artists may be disappointed not to have secured a spot, and we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. We want to assure you that this decision was not made lightly and was based on careful consideration to ensure the best possible experience for all participants.

One of the reasons we limit the number of spaces in our Artist Alley is to ensure that each artist has the opportunity to make a good profit. By carefully curating the number of participants, we can create an environment where artists can showcase their work and connect with fans in a meaningful way. Opening up too many spaces could dilute the market and make it difficult for artists to generate sufficient sales.

We believe that quality over quantity is crucial in creating a successful and enjoyable Artist Alley experience for both artists and attendees. Our goal is to provide a vibrant and profitable platform for artists to showcase their talents and for fans to discover unique and high-quality merchandise inspired by their favorite anime series.

We want to extend our deepest appreciation to all the artists who applied for a spot in our Artist Alley. Your creativity, talent, and dedication to your craft are truly inspiring, and we are grateful for your support. We also want to thank our attendees for their enthusiasm and continued support of our convention. Without you, none of this would be possible.

For those who were not able to secure a spot in our Artist Alley this time, we encourage you to keep creating and pursuing your passion. We value your participation and support, and we hope to have the opportunity to showcase your work at future Anime Toronto events.

As we approach our convention date, we are working tirelessly to ensure that our Artist Alley and all other aspects of the convention are a huge success. We have exciting plans in store, including a diverse range of programming, special guests, and engaging activities that we can’t wait to share with you all.

Once again, thank you for your overwhelming support and understanding. We are honored to have such a talented and passionate community of artists, and we look forward to welcoming everyone to Anime Toronto. Let’s make it an unforgettable event together!

With deepest appreciation, The Anime Toronto Team
