Pick a Clan!
A key part of London Anime Con are the clans! You can join a clan beforehand (click on the image of the clan below to be taken to their HQ topic where you can post to sign up), or at the event itself.
Upon arrival, you will be given a conbadge to wear corresponding to the clan you're in. Any events or tournaments you win will earn you points toward your choosen clan. At the end of Sunday, the winning clan and the member who scored the most points are both announced and prizes are granted!
