A waiver must be signed at the beginning of the event, stating you know the health risks involved in staying up for up to 24 hours. You do not have to stay the full 24, but be aware that the waiver must still be signed. An emergency contact number will be needed as well. Anyone co-producing a comic must sign two seperate waivers. -We will be providing participants with coupons for graphic novels and manga ! - If participants want to submit their completed 24-Hour Comics to the main 24-Hour Comics Day collection, make sure you ask for a cover letter to send in with the copy of their comic. Send copies only. -We will not be providing art supplies or paper for the event. All artist materials must be aquired by the participant. -Any personal music must have earbuds, as not all participants will have your taste during their creative process, otherwise we will have quiet instrumental music in the background. -Light catering will be available for purchase, but participants are free to come and go for food as needed. -NO alcohol or drugs of any kind will be allowed anywhere near the venue. Participants are expected to be sober during the event. This is an all-ages event and our posted gameroom rules still apply. Any misconduct in violation of those rules will result in removal from the event. -We strongly encourage artists to have a ride home after the event, we do not recommened exausted individuals driving. -Options are provided to those who do not wish to stay the full 24 hours. A 12 page 12 hour comic is also an option, but any comic made during this event is still an accomplishment as we encourage all participants towards any finished work! We welcome all artists for any length of time! -Remember that although this is an incredible event that will challenge your artistic skills, we want to remind all participants that your health comes first and there is NO shame in resigning if you need it. We want this to be fun and safe for everyone!
