Autograph Policy

Autograph Sessions

Pacific Media Expo (PMX) has two types of autograph sessions - Panel Autograph Sessions and Sponsor Autograph Sessions. Each session type has different guidelines, so please read the following carefully. Final decision on all policies rests with the Director of Guest Services or the Director of Music for musical guests. All policies are subject to change.

PMX Guest Services would like to remind attendees to please respect the guest should they wish not to have any pictures, video, or audio taken of them. Please obtain permission from either Guest Services staff or the guest prior to taking any pictures, video, or audio in the autograph area.

There is a limit of one (1) item per attendee to be signed, unless the additional quantity is approved by the guest for the autograph session. Each item must be personalized by the guest during the autograph session.

Panel Autograph Sessions

Panel Autograph Sessions are the most common type of autograph session. At each Guest of Honor's Primary Panel, attendees will be given a two-part ticket as they enter the room. Attendees who are interested in entering a raffle for an autograph should return one part of the ticket. At the end of the panel, autograph winners will be selected from the submitted tickets. A small number of winners may also qualify for sketches if the Guest of Honor is an artist and by his or her discretion. PMX staff must validate winning tickets before tickets can be redeemed for an autograph or sketch. If not all of the winning tickets are claimed, PMX staff may offer standby tickets to attendees who remain after the panel. A standby ticket does not guarantee an autograph or sketch, but allows for the opportunity to obtain one if time permits. Winning tickets and standby tickets may be redeemed at any of the respective Guest of Honorís Panel Autograph Sessions.

Sponsor Autograph Sessions

In the case where a company sponsors a guest, the company sponsor may decide to hold a separate autograph session outside of the regular PMX autograph sessions that the guest participated in. The sponsor will dictate the eligibility guidelines of the session; however, since the sessions are hosted by PMX, the same Autograph Policies will be in effect.

Autograph Session Lines

Lining up for autograph sessions will not be permitted until thirty (30) minutes before the session. Anyone found waiting for the autographs prior to official line up will be asked to leave the area and return at the appropriate time. Thirty (30) minutes before the start of the autograph session, a staff member will designate where the autograph line begins and form the line. Autograph ticket holders will be given priority. If time permits, it may be possible for non-ticket holders to receive an autograph but this is not guaranteed. Non-tickets holders will form a separate line and will be accommodated after ticket holders.

Once a person enters the autograph line, we ask that they do not leave the line. If you leave the line, you will lose your place in line and will have to re-enter at the end of the line. Positions in line can not be held for anyone not personally present in line.

PMX is not responsible for any lost or missing tickets. No special arrangements or exceptions will be made for anyone with lost/missing tickets or showing up late.

Exceptions may be made for anyone with a physically disabled and they should consult the Autograph Staff prior to start of autograph session.

Disclaimer

Rules may changes depending on the conditions and all decisions made by Autograph Staff at the autograph session are final. All grievances should be made prior to end of autograph session.

Pacific Media Expo, its sponsors, and guests reserve the right to postpone or cancel any and all autograph sessions at any time without notice. Please remember that it is a privilege and not a right to obtain autographs or sketches from any guest.
