ANIME NYC 2019 PRE-SHOW AUTOGRAPH LOTTERY FAQ
Anime NYC’s goal is to put more autographs into the hands of more fans than ever before. Previously, tickets to our most popular guests were distributed in a way that was difficult or impossible for a large number of fans to take part. Our pre-show lottery system allows every fan an equal chance at autograph tickets to our rarest guests.
No autograph tickets will be given away when Anime NYC’s doors open each morning. The lottery system eliminates the need to line up in the early morning or overnight.

Anime NYC’s pre-show autograph lotteries are intended to put autograph tickets into the hands of fans. If you are not serious about meeting a guest, do not enter their lottery. Should you win and not claim your autograph ticket, you will be banned from future Anime NYC autograph ticket giveaways.
Anime NYC will announce on social media during Anime NYC if there are any follow up giveaways for specific autographs, but there are no onsite standby lines or autograph ticket waitlists.
The guest questions are a series of questions about the specific guest at the center of each lottery. You must correctly answer all guest questions in each lottery to successfully enter. Only entries with correct answers will be in the running to win tickets.
You’ll receive an email by November 10 with details. If you are not selected as a winner, we’re unfortunately unable to include you in these events.
