Volunteer Rewards Program

No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted. - Aesop

If the coordinators are the brains behind a convention, then the volunteers are the blood that helps it to function. The brain cannot run without blood, just as much that an anime convention can't live without its volunteers.

With such a large convention, a large number of volunteers is needed to ensure the success of the event. Volunteering also helps ensure that there will be an Otakuthon next year, since it takes a lot of hard work and effort to organize and run a convention, but it becomes a bit less difficult when more people come and help out.

With a wide range of activities to volunteer for - such as registration, panels, hosting workshops and even fundraising - volunteering isn't such a boring task. Every volunteer helps to make a convention safer and more enjoyable for the convention-goers and less crazy for the organizers.

Volunteering can also make a difference for your wallet. Registration reimbursements are being offered this year to those who volunteer their time to help out. The list below is the rewards system which will be in place this year.


Hours Pre-registration (15$) Door Registration (20$)
4 33% reimbursement of admission 25% reimbursement of admission
8 66% reimbursement of admission 50% reimbursement of admission
12 100% reimbursement of admission 75% reimbursement of admission
16 100% reimbursement of admission 100% reimbursement of admission

Benefits aside, volunteering is a great way to connect and make friends with other people who share and understand your passion for anime, Japanese culture and video games.
