Please know that after 9pm today, that CM staff will not be available to answer questions on the message boards in a timely manner. They will be focusing on the processing of applications from that time and the next few days.
If there are any questions that need to be addressed asap, you should forward your questions directly to email@example.com. Otherwise, staff will not be able to address it in a timely manner due to the possibility of it getting buried under the applications being processed.
If you are applying with a friend who is also planning to apply separately, please do not include your name in more than one application. One of the applications will be cancelled out if your name appears in more than one. You can always add a secondary artist at a later date.
In regards to when you will receive lottery numbers, please do not expect anything until after February 20, 2014. Once all applications have been reviewed and all discrepancies cleared, the cm staff will receive the green light to send off the lottery numbers to each artist applicant.
If you do not receive a lottery number by 6:00pm February 22, 2014, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org immediately.
Best regards to all the applicants planning to apply tonight and good luck.
February 23, 2014 - Lottery and Waiting List Results
At 10 pm, Lottery and Waiting list results will be posted. However, Comic Market Staff wishes winning applicants to be aware that the registration and contract package will not be sent to you until tomorrow, February 24, 2014, after 9am EST. Please only expect it then.
We ask that all artists hold off on sending secondary artists and helper additions until you receive that package and the instructions. There are full details on the procedures on how to add a secondary artist/helper to your contract in that e-mail.
We will also be e-mailing waiting list artists for options and procedures to remain in the list.
Again, Staff will be sending out registration packages to the lottery winners tomorrow morning as well as information for waiting list artists. We thank you for your patience and cooperation.
As of March 18, 2014, we have accommodated the first set of waiting list numbers and have pulled another 10 lottery numbers to make a second set. This set will be the priority list for any cancellations and on the day no-shows at the convention. If your number is listed, please check you e-mail on how to proceed.
