The official end time for the 2019 Survey has passed, and the raw spreadsheet of results is available here.
The 2018 Convention Artist Survey collected 987 artist responses regarding financial and other data for over 300 conventions in North America — how much they made, how much they spent, how far they traveled, how they rated staff communication and organisation, and so on.
And the corresponding report turning that data into relevant charts and graphs is finally done. Snag the 2018 report for $5 or more!
The survey and report still skews heavily towards anime conventions, but 2018 marks the first time there were enough responses for two furry conventions to get individual reports! Two comic cons also got individual reports, one new and one returning. I removed a few of the travel-related pages and combined some charts for brevity. Most of the travel data here didn’t change significantly between 2017 and 2018, so you can refer back to the 2017 report if you’re curious and want the visuals.
Unsure the report will be useful to you? Get any of the prior years’ reports for a minimum of $0.
After many delays due to a hectic convention season, the 2015 Convention Artist Survey results are here!
Following 2014’s survey and report, the 2015 survey was expanded to include more questions and to accept responses for all North American conventions, regardless of size or genre. In total, 670 responses were collected for over 160 different conventions. That is a lot of data!
