Top and well-known actors either don't go to the cones at all or they choose a lot where to go. They charge millions of CZK for a one-day appearance. Normally, millions are reached also by the requirements of the main stars of popular current series. Photographs and signatures would cost ten thousand CZK or more. The price (among other things, but for simplicity) is based on costs, budgeting on the number of photos and signatures, which can actually be realized in standard working hours. There are only a few people in the Czech Republic who would pay such a much money for a photo or signature. So from a certain required money of the agents of the actors, it even makes sense to consider inviting the actor.
Believe that selecting guests and dealing with agents is a very demanding job, believe that we do more than the maximum, and thanks to that we managed to arrange guests that the Comic-Con in a small Czech Republic could not afford.
Rewards for appearance in cones is a standard part of actors' income. It is a job like any other, it takes several days (it is necessary to count all the time spent away from home). Rewards for relatively well-known actors are relatively high, they are thousands to usually tens of thousands, the most famous actors ask for hundreds of thousands of dollars, euros, british pounds.
Photographs and autographs cannot be provided free of charge, the interest would exceed the technical and time possibilities. Guest costs cannot be covered only by the entrance fee.
The money paid for professional photos and autographs of the actors cover only PART of the organizer's costs: rewards for actors and their agents, air tickets and ground transport, accommodation, per diem, for well-known actors also the costs of participation of their agents, technical support of facilities, discussions, photography and signing, staff taking care of it, promotion and other associated costs ...
You can purchase a photo with the guest and/or a studio photo of the guest and/or his/her autograph in advance at the Comic-Con Junior e-shop or on site at convention. After payment you will receive a unique code.
A week before the festival or on site, you enter the unique code into the same e-shop and choose a specific time for the photo shoot/signing from the available options. This also applies to VIP participants.
At the selected time, you will arrive in the photo / autograph zone on the 1st floor, you will proof the second unique code obtained at the time of withdrawal and receive a photo (within 30 seconds of taking the photo) or an autograph.
If you don't receive a purchase confirmation, code, etc., you need to address it EARLY at, not in FB messages, etc.
At the entrance to the photo area, you put down your luggage/mobile, etc., sanitize your hands, on the instruction of the attendant you approach the actor, greet him/her, stand in position. A professional photographer will take your picture, check the result on the screen and send it to the press. In the meantime, you say goodbye, take your belongings and wait outside for a few tens of seconds for the printed 20x30 cm photo. A code in the corner of it will then allow you to download a digital copy after a certain amount of time after the con.
One photo voucher is for one to two people. More people = more vouchers.
Failure to take a photo or sign at the chosen time will result in the loss of the photo or signature. But ask the staff in the photo and autograph zone for spare time, they will try to help you, if possible.
One photo voucher is for one or two people (including children).
For a photo with more persons at a time, it is necessary to purchase the appropriate number of vouchers.
The number of printed photos equals the number of vouchers.
If any of the guest actors do not make it to the current Comic-Con for any reason, we will automatically refund payments for photos and autographs with them after the time necessary for administration.
Non-actor guests are not affected, as we do not sell photo shoots and signings with them, there is nothing to refund.
When eventually changing the date of Comic-Con Junior, we will do everything to ensure that there are as few changes as possible in the guest list. Of course, it will depend on the specific situation of each guest, but we believe that the changes will be minimal.
