That time of the year has come again! You will notice that there are different types of Otafest Auctions happening around the convention this year. Make sure you don’t get confused!

The traditional Otafest Auction and Charity Auction will happen this year in Science Theatres, on Sunday between 2:30PM to 5:30pm (or longer depending on what happens!). Don’t forget to check the schedule and rooms for more information.

Since Otafest is growing so rapidly, make sure you review EVERYTHING! Starting here!

Otafest Auction & Charity Auction Guidelines

  1. Only a limited number of items will be accepted due to time restrictions. 50 items is the total maximum, items will be accepted on a first come, first served basis.
  2. There is a maximum of five (5) items per person! You can save the rest of the following year! (Who knows? You might score more antique/classical products!)
  3. Collectible material may be sold as one (1) item. For instance, 4 posters for $10 can be considered as one (1) item.
  4. Please sign in your items at Registration Desk at least two (2) hours before the event begins. We will not accept late items! Please ensure your items arrive on time to be a part of the auction.
  5. Please label or tag your items before you bring them. We want to ensure that the money goes to its rightful owner! Labels and tags will still be available at the Registration Desk, but doing this at home will save time for both you and convention staff. And remember, label charity items clearly if you have them.
  6. Please keep in mind that Otafest is a family convention. Should any submission include explicit materials, please inform me beforehand, and include a warning on the labels of your items.
  7. In order to maintain an annual convention, Otafest will retain 10% of all proceeds. Owners of the respective material(s) sold will receive all else generated from the auction.
