Bidder Numbers

You have to register with the Art Show desk for a bidder number before you can bid on a piece. The desk will be set up in the art show and will run the same hours as the art show you will need to present your Keycon badge to get a bidder number. If you do not all your bids will be scratched from the sheet and you will lose the rights to the piece. Please keep this in mind and register before you bid.

Pieces that that have three bids on them will be sent to auction. Auction normally takes place on the afternoon of the last day of the convention (Sunday). Bidding will start at the highest of the existing bids.

This normally regarded as a fun event for the bidders and the the audience as well. Especially when the bid reach certain “magic” numbers.
