Submitting to the Art and/or Charity Auction
The Art Registration form is provided below. You will receive a confirmation email 48hrs after you submit the form which will include the information you need to print out, and directions for shipping your art to us. Art is displayed on a limited space. Please inform us when you send in the art submission form of the size and number of your art. Due date for submissions is TBD.
There are no hanging fees; however, Madicon takes a 10% commission on any art that is sold in the regular Auction. The final bid for Charity auctions pieces goes in it’s entirety to the Virginia Wildlife Center. Artists are responsible for all postage required to send their art to and from Madicon. Directions for how to address this will be included in the confirmation email. Unsold art and payment will be sent out no later than 6 weeks after the convention. Within a few days of the convention artists will receive email confirmation on the status of their art.
When specifying a starting bid and Auto Buy price please be conscious that the crowd that gathers at Madicon is not particularly wealthy as a large number of attendees are local college students. To this affect we recommend keeping your starting bid at or below $20 for large pieces, $10 for medium pieces, and $5 for small pieces. Auto Buy prices is the price at which someone can outright purchase your piece circumventing the bidding process, and is completely up to the artist discretion on how high it should be.
When specifying your art pieces that your sending please use the following format for each piece:
