Get ready to wiggle your cuteness all over Lakeland when you hear the sweet tunes carefully selected by 91.8 The Fan, a radio station just for the otaku!
91.8 The Fan exists to provide anime and manga fans with contemporary-style radio, showcasing the hottest tunes from Japan, Korea, and China. 91.8 is not an automated playlist, but instead functions as a 24/7 live radio station with DJs, interviews, and contests. It promotes legal ways to consume the media via free releases, online streaming, and more.
They'll have a booth in front of Breakers cafeteria across from con ops where you can check them out and maybe do a little jig... Thank you 91.8!!
91.8 has featured some of the most popular voice actors in the industry. With over 550 interviews with the hottest names in voice acting, music, and geekdom in their archives, 91.8 The Fan is sure to have an interview just for you. On 91.8 The Fan you will also find a wide range of writers who put out weekly and monthly articles detailing a myriad of topics, from music to anime to games. You can also see a news show every weekday highlighting the latest news, as well as convention footage from around the world, including panels, interviews, and cosplayers. Head over to 91.8 The Fan today to chat live with live DJs or your fellow fans!
Hello NyanCon attendees, artists, and vendors alike! We decided to shed a little more limelight on the beautiful people in our Dealer's Room by creating a special day where they may freely advertise the goods they're bringing October 4th! September 28th is Self-Promo Sunday where vendors and artists can post on our Facebook group, Twitter, and Tumblr and we will reblog/retweet for all to see. This is retricted to just one day, so don't worry about the channels getting too spammy!
We hope you enjoy our fine selection of merch and art and look forward to seeing the turnout in a few weeks! :D
The schedule is live! You'll notice some blank and TBD spaces as we're waiting on final confirmation from licensing companies and guests. The schedule may and probably will be adjusted before the convention, keep an eye open for changes. Check out the Schedule page for the official up-to-date version!
Attention panelists: check your emails! We've sent out confirmation emails and need your approval of the schedule before we publish it!
We're also excited to invite all panelists to compete in the the NyanCon Panel Flyer Contest! Approved panelists are welcome to submit an advertisement for your panel that will be uploaded online and posted to several bulletin boards in key locations of the convention. The coolest flyer voted on by a majority vote among our staff will get their flyer added to the program book! Here are some rules for the contest:
We look forward to seeing your awesome creativity fill out rooms and cover our walls! :D
If you're interested in competing in the NyanCon Cosplay Contest or the Cosplay Challenge, our pre-registration is open! These 5-10 minute appointments are where you will show our judges your cosplay for a chance to win a monetary prize! Pre-registering is not necessary to compete, but we have limited entrants and making an appointment is the best way to guarantee your slot. Check out the rules on the cosplay page and fill out the form at the bottom of the page to register!
Don't you wait or procrastinate, you'll miss out when it's too late! (wow that rhymed..)
Panel submissions close this Sunday night August 31st at midnight! This weekend is your last chance to submit a panel for NyanCon 2014 and don't forget that if you present at least three hours of panel programming, you and one co-panelist will get a NyanCon 2014 t-shirt!

Don't forget about NyanCon's sister event from Anime Anonymous: The Fandom Bazaar! Just one more week to gather your monies and friends to join us at this open market.
This is a free dealer's room, artist alley, flea market, and bake sale combo that we can't wait to debut! Next Saturday, August 30th from noon to 5pm we'll meet you in Breakers Cafeteria at Lakeland Community College to have fun and buy some cool stuff :3

Remember when we said the Anime Ballroom Orchestra was our ninth and final guest? We lied...
We're completely ecstatic to announce that we found not one, not two, but three stunning local DJs to blow your minds at NyanCon's first ever rave! Adinga, EverettG, & ExiA are DJs you've probably seen at conventions like Colossalcon, Animarathon, and Matsuricon. They're ready to blow your pretty faces off in our Nyan-Neon Rave and we can't wait to push Lakeland's equipment to its limit (bwahaha).
Visit our Guests Page for more details and music samples of all three DJs as well as our other fantastic guests.
We're starting to get our program book together and we've decided to sell advertisement space this year! Each page of the program is 8"x5.5". A full-page ad (7.5"x5") will cost $40 and a half-page ad (3.75"x5") is $20. Along with the program space, you're also featured on our sponsors page online, put on our sponsor thank you poster at the con, and listed as a sponsor in the archives after the convention is over.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about or purchase ad space.
We're also still looking for organizations, businesses, and cons looking to hold a free table in our Exhibit Hall! The Exhibit Hall is perfect for people looking to get the word out about their cause but not sell any merchandise.
Please see the Exhibit Hall rules and apply soon!
