Autographs & Photos

Meeting your favourite geeky celebrity is the highlight of any con. Many Hal-Con guests will have designated autograph and/or photo opportunity sessions, and you can purchase tickets for these sessions either in advance or at the convention.

Pre-Order Autograph and Photo Ops

Want to make sure you get to meet your favourite guest? You can buy autograph and photo op tickets online. Information on pricing for each guest usually appears on the website and social media approximately 6 weeks before the event. Pre-order sales of autos and photo ops generally begin about a month before Hal-Con.

Pre-ordered autograph and photo tickets will be available to pick up at Registration on the Argyle Street level Thursday during pre-registration, Friday afternoon, and Saturday/Sunday morning. If you arrive outside of these times, you can get them on the lower level of the convention center at the autograph/photo-op booth.

Purchase Autograph and Photo Ops at the Convention

You can also purchase autograph and photo opportunities at the convention at the autograph/photo-op booth on the lower level or at the autograph/photo op booth on the Ballroom Level in the Vendor Hall. Some guests may offer table selfies, combos for autos and photos, and other merch at their tables as well.

Rules & Regulations for Autographs

You must have a valid admission ticket to be able to use an autograph voucher. Purchase of an autograph or photograph voucher does not provide admission to the convention.

All autograph sales are available while supplies last. They are non-refundable except in the event of a guest cancellation. Each session has a finite number of slots. If you do not arrive for your scheduled slot, you cannot exchange for a different one.

Attendees can purchase a maximum of 3 autographs for the same actor at a time. After receiving those autographs, you can get back in line for 3 more autographs and repeat as often as you like. One autograph voucher = one signature. 

Attendees can bring in personal items for the guest to sign, but it is up to the guest whether or not they will choose to sign any given item. If you do not have a personal item to sign, or if the guest declines to sign your personal item, there will be a selection of printed photos to choose from at the signing table at no additional cost. Free printed photos are not available to those who get a personal item or picture signed.

You are not allowed to take pictures on personal cameras/cell phones while waiting in line for autographs or photographs. All purchases are final sale, refunds are only available in the event the guest cancels their appearance.

Attendees may purchase a digital download and/or extra prints for an additional $10.00 (each) through Click Studios, our official provider.
