A workshop organizer will be entitled to registration at a reduced rate for up to 4 members of your workshop.  When your Workshop is accepted you will be given a code to use to register as a Workshop Leader.  A committee selects from the applicants and the decision is final. All workshops must be relevant to KotoriCon. That means they must be related to one or more of the following areas of interest: Japanese music and culture, anime/animation, manga/comics, video games, AMVs, cosplay, art, or crafts, or our theme for this year.
KotoriCon is a family-friendly convention. All workshops must be suitable for attendees of all ages.
