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 relies on it’s wonderful volunteers each year to ensure our event runs smoothly. One of the most important volunteer faction is our photographers.
Volunteer photographers will document everything over the weekend, from the guest Photo Booth to the Gaming Hall. They will work with our lovely guests and photograph all our events on the main stage while also photographing the festival and it’s attendees.
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.
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.
The AVCON community is full of hundreds of amazingly talented and creative people, one of the ways we like to encourage this talent is through our Art Competition.
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.
