If you represent a media organisation and would like to cover AVCon, applications are now open for 2016 media passes. We have a limited number of passes available so apply now.
Volunteers & Staff
The invaders are AVCON’s team of awesome dedicated volunteers who make the convention run. Without them Avcon couldn’t exist and as such, they are the public face, and working backbone of the event.
AVCON is looking for well-presented, charismatic people to host AVCON events. AVCON hosts mediate, talk to audience members, interact with guests and competition entrants.
This year we’re embarking on newer and more exciting events at the Ichigo Ke-Ki Café (いちごケーキ). We’re looking for people with bright and bubbly personalities, excellent customer service skills and a willingness to dance and perform to join our team.
Competitions & Attractions
South Australia’s largest Cosplay Competition showcases the very best local talent. Entrants are judged on craftsmanship, character accuracy/creativity, attention to detail, stage presence. Or enter as a skit and bring your cosplay to life.
Due to a lack of interest the Lolita Parade will not be held in 2018.
Applications for the AMV competition are now open. Show us your editing skills by pairing clips from your favourite anime(s) to music in a fun, dramatic or emotional way.
One of the best places to teach and learn about anime, gaming, cosplay or Japanese culture is at an AVCon panel. Applications for 2017 are now closed but if you feel you have something you can share start planning for next year!
Speedrunners from all over Australia participate in our Speedrunning exhibition, which has been running since 2013. We are opening up this event to all who wish to participate.
