Policies

We at Tupelo Con want you to have the best time possible at the convention, but to do that you, as an attendee, should be aware of some of our policies.

 


PHOTOGRAPHY

By entering Tupelo Con, all attendees agree to have their photos taken by Tupelo Con volunteer staff for promotional purposes. Tupelo Con agrees not to use the photos in any other manner besides promotion and not to sell the photos to any third party.

Photography is allowed and encouraged at the convention! However, if someone does not wish their picture to be taken, refrain from photographing them.  Also, if you need to take a picture, be quick about it and do not block hallways or entrances. There will be many opportunities all weekend for anyone to have their picture taken by our convention photographer(s), so don’t worry about catching everyone’s picture!

Photographers are asked to not set up any lighting structures or backdrops that are not immediately portable.  Photographers may be asked to move these structures due to traffic flow at any time.

Please refrain from using photographic devices in any showing room or main movie presentation. You are welcome to take many pictures during events such as the costume contest and opening ceremonies!


COSPLAY IS NOT CONSENT

Please keep your hands to yourself. If you would like to take a picture with or of a cosplayer ask first and respect that person's right to say no. When at Tupelo Con, be respectful, be nice, be cool and be kind to each other.


CHILDREN

At Tupelo Con, we pride ourselves on being an all-ages convention. We encourage all guests to bring their kids or young friends without having to worry about adult programming or material in the Dealers’ Area.

However, the convention space will become very crowded and it is recommended that an adult accompany all minors at all times. There is no convention-wide public announcement system, so please keep an eye on children! If you should have a problem with a lost child, please contact any security member or the Information Desk and the volunteer staff will help in any way they can.


BEHAVIOR

We know that a convention is about having a good time, but for our attendees safety, disruptive behavior will not be tolerated, such as fighting/sparring (fake or real, including sword swinging), heckling, impeding traffic flow, offensive behavior, failure to observe basic hygiene, public inebriation (or similar intoxication), or any other failure to follow the rules.

Tupelo Con can and will take action against any type of disruptive behavior, even beyond the behaviors mentioned. Attendees that cause these types of problems may be warned, asked to leave, or even face inquiries from the police (depending on severity).

Attendees of Tupelo Con attend at their own risk. Tupelo Con takes no responsibility for any damages incurred to property or person of guests, artists, dealers, or attendees. Smoking is not permitted inside any buildings, this includes e-cigarettes and vaping. Offensive or revealing attire is not permitted. No costume is no costume.  Please refer to the Dress Code policies listed below.
