Chromacon Announces 2015 Dates

Chromacon, New Zealand’s biggest celebration of homegrown comic art, graphic and gaming design, and animation is returning to Auckland’s Aotea Centre in April.

What was previously a one-day festival has now expanded to two days and will take place over the weekend of the 18th and 19th of April.

Chromacon is a free event with 100 of the best local illustrators, comic artists, designers, animators and video game developers exhibiting, allowing attendees to connect with established and emerging artists alike.

Artists exhibiting this year include Dylan Horrocks, Ema Frost, Faction Comics, Tim Gibson, Sam Orchard, Ben Senbeck (of Hellboy fame), WETA artists Paul Tobin, Nick Keller, Jeremy Hanna and Stuart Thomas, and Toby Morris.

Chromacon will also host a one-day industry symposium called Chroma-connect on Friday 17th April. The symposium aims to "facilitate professional development, emergent innovation and entrepreneurial opportunities for New Zealand’s creative sector, through workshops, panel discussions, education and networking activities."
