AUTOGRAPHS

Similar to past years, Anime NYC will be holding autograph ticket lotteries for all guests offering free autographs. The autograph ticket lottery starts at 6 PM Eastern on Monday, November 7, and ends at 11:59 PM Eastern on Tuesday, November 8. You must have an Anime NYC badge to take part in this giveaway.

Anime NYC conducts our ticketed autographs this way to give as many fans as possible a chance to take part and to prevent anyone from needing to wait hours in line or camp out overnight for the chance at an autograph.

Each guest has their own lottery. You can enter as few or as many different lotteries as you’d like. And it doesn’t matter when you enter. All entries will be weighed the same. After our lottery is over, we will randomly pick winners and contact everyone who entered—whether you won or not. You can enter multiple lotteries, but you cannot enter the same lottery more than once. You MUST enter with your real name, and all duplicate entries will be deleted. If you win, you MUST show a Photo ID when claiming your autograph ticket. If your ID does not match the name you submitted online, you cannot claim your ticket. Autograph tickets are nontransferable. No exceptions.

Important notes:

  • Only one entry per person per lottery
  • Duplicate entries will be deleted
  • If under 18, you must have a parent or guardian’s permission to enter
  • If you win, you must show Photo ID
  • If your name does not match your ID, you will not be able to claim your autograph ticket
  • Anime NYC 2022 autograph tickets are wristbands that will be placed on your arm by Staff
    • Do not tamper or try to remove your wristband until your signing
  • Autograph tickets are nontransferable, no exceptions

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 specific guest, do not enter their lottery. Should you win and not claim your autograph ticket, you will be prohibited from winning future Anime NYC autograph ticket giveaways.

All entrants will be contacted with the results of the lottery by Saturday, November 12.

Please see individual lotteries for specific signing rules.
