Visit Kickstarter for more information.

The lucky artist receives two 4-day badges, the opportunity to showcase their portfolio, sell product, and network from the KWF Booth at the convention. You have between now and February 1, 2016 to submit your application, so head on over to their Sponsorship page to apply now.
