Creators with a focus on visual, moving image, interactive mediums and showcasing self-produced work. We don’t have any restrictions towards styles/genres, however – this is a festival to celebrate innovation across visual arts, and not a fine arts exhibition, market or pop culture convention.
This is a limitation of venue space as well as our desire to support New Zealand creatives in preparing the best showcase possible at Chromacon.
We aim to provide creators with the best possible exhibition space at the lowest cost. This means booths are very limited, we encourage all applicants to submit their best works with their application.
Everyone’s welcome! However, parents of applicants under the age of 16 must give their consent upon registration and also accompany the exhibitor on the day of the event.
We have a strong stance against censorship of artworks at Chromacon, however, if you do plan on exhibiting works featuring mature themes, please let us know upon registration or at any time prior to the event.
If you have any further questions regarding this matter, please feel free to contact us.
We recommend creators apply as individuals. If you would like to share a full booth with another creative, we suggest applying for half booths independently. Closer to the festival we will have an opportunity for exhibitors to let us know booth preferences and we are very happy to take requests to be next to another exhibitor into consideration.
However, it is possible to exhibit/ apply as a team/ collective as long as the primary work(s) exhibited are collaborative in nature.
Yes! For the first time, we're opening up a limited amount of booths for indie friends across the globe!
Please read our Exhibitor Info and Terms and Conditions pages to find out more about Chromacon and submit your exhibitor application for curation.
Booth spaces are limited so be sure to apply as soon as you can!
Unfortunately no, Chromacon operates on a not-for-profit basis, as such exhibitors would have to cover travel and accommodation costs themselves.
We do offer travel and accommodation allowance to support international guests, however this is solely at the discretion of the Chromacon committee. Feel free to contact us if you are interested.
Generally speaking, no. This is due to the nature of booths being close in proximity to each other, and the importance of facilitating a non-disruptive environment for both exhibitors and visitors.
However, we can make exceptions to this rule if sound is integral to any self-produced animation/ video game etc you plan on exhibiting. Do note however, you must inform us if you require this exception upon registration. We reserve the rights to ask artists to lower the volume during the event if it is disrupting the event/ neighbouring booths.
We provide full booths with 2 chairs and half booths with one chair.
In the event of this happening, please contact us ASAP. The right to exhibit at Chromacon is absolutely non-transferable and must not be resold.
There will be no refunds for cancellations 2 months or less prior to the event.
It is acceptable for someone else to manage your booth on your behalf. They will be responsible for any infringements of terms and conditions in the vicinity of the booth space.
