POTENTIAL VENDORS at ONYXCON - PLEASE UNDERSTAND THE FOLLOWING: *Vendors at our event submit an application, payment, and sample materials for review of what they wish to sell. We do not send an application if we wish to save the inquirer the effort of sending material and payment when we can predetermine that there is not a good fit for our brand and standards as an event.
SHOW US WHATCHA GOT ! : Website and real name (public name/pen name) are required for application request via e-mail/written request - firstname.lastname@example.org. Each and every vendor is weighed in on their professional reputation, general public character, potential to garner/attract a progressive positive following for their work and a response that is positive from our target audience.
Communication and compliance with these standards are mandatory to be a vendor at ONYXCON. Our audience is not limited to any particular cultural/ethnic identity. We in no way are limited to representing Artist/communities of the conventional positions of 'mainstream' or 'underground'. ONYXCON is ONYXCON, and we have boundaries.
REQUEST APPLICATIONS AT email@example.com
Q: I want to be a vendor. How do I sign up?
A:See the VENDING tab here on this site! READ ...THIS... PAGE! :)
Q: Can I just come and hand out fliers, or show people my books and sale a few as I walk around, or give people free merchandise to encourage more customers for my company?
NO, NO, and ABSOLUTELY NOT! If you paid for a table at ONYXCON, you would be highly disappointed to see someone who only paid admission to the event walk around and promote, sell, and solicit free samples of anything. These are all actions that are the rights of certified vendors ONLY. If you wish to be a part - contribute to the event, apply, be accepted, and earn it. NO exceptions.
Q: I am a certified vendor this year and wanted to know, can I just have my friend drop something off at my table and just say hi real quick and then leave without paying admission?
A: NO. Anyone entering the event should support the event. PAY. ONYXCON is one of the most affordable events of it's kind. $UPPORT THIS or do not attend.
Q: Can I play music at my table?
A: You cannot play music without head phones. This cannot be loud enough to compete with music already provided by ONYXCON's official DJay(s). You can play bring headphones for customers to hear what you wish them to experience while at your table. If you are selling music, the same applies. All music is to be approved by ONYXCON prior to being presented.
Q: So do I have to send an application or can I just pay? I don't like contracts.
A: ONYXCON requires application processes PERIOD. All certified vendors must go through the application process. No exceptions. Apply at ONYXCON@GMAIL.COM Send your name, company name, and images/website link to what you wish to present.
Q: My work is so hot. I am the world's greatest Artist. My book/film/novel, etc. is the greatest ever! Can I be a featured guest at ONYXCON?
A: Featured, Celebrity, and Honored Guest at ONYXCON are selected by the official ONYXCON VENDOR REVIEW COMMITTEE (period). There is a selection process based on acknowledgment of many levels of professionalism, tried and proven leadership, a notable resume based on our standards of accolades, and a willingness to exchange time & expertise for panels, workshops, and lectures via the ONYXCON INSTITUTE. These terms can in certain instances merit 'Guest' status at ONYXCON and may result in certain incentives based on presentation and availability.
Q: I received a PROJECTION LETTER. It says I am not ready to be a vendor at ONYXCON. It states I am not being 'rejected' but being 'projected' to improve. It suggest that I apply to developmental classes. It mentions the ONYXCON INSTITUTE, when are these classes?
A: ONYXCON INSTITUTE is an opportunity for free and low fee panels, lectures, and workshops to support Artist in growing as professionals. There is typically a lecture/panel on the week of ONYXCON's August event. See the 'SCHEDULE' here on this page to stay tuned for details.
Q: I am a vendor this year and I want to pull the ONYXCON (registered) logo from images online and 'photoshop' it on to my book's cover as a symbol that this issue is an ONYXCON Exclusive (registered).
A: NO! You must ask for WRITTEN PERMISSION TO UTILIZE THE 'ONYXCON' LOGO(S), images, characters, or other materials in ANY way. There are NO official/exclusive associations with ONYXCON in written or visual symbolism, without official written approval/license.
