If you're interested in submitting a model, models do not have to be original. As long as proper documentation is provided, such as the name and author of the model, and the folder's name, you may bring any model to the convention to display.

The cheapest method of transportation we recommend is taking the BART to Downtown Berkeley, then the 51B bus to Durant Ave/Telegraph Ave and walking to Anna Head from there. However, if you are driving, there are parking spots next to meters around the city that are free on the day of the event as well as garages at Telegraph Ave/Channing Way and Haste St./College Ave where the cost is no more than $20 if you're staying for the entirety of the event.

Unfortunately, food will not be provided at the event. However, there are a wide variety of great restaurants on Telegraph Ave near the venue. We will be providing a list of recommended places to eat at on the day of the event!

We are looking for sponsors for our organization, and in return, we will add your logo and information to our advertisement materials. We will accept both money and material donations. If you are interested, please email us directly at eastbayorigamicon@gmail.com.
