Panel Application • ECCC 2024
All fields are required.
What makes Emerald City Comic Con one of the coolest and best conventions on planet Earth? Besides being Seattle's home for the latest and greatest in all things pop culture - the answer is YOU! This is your show and for Emerald City Comic Con's historic 2024 we need your help to make it the biggest and best it can be! We're looking for original and creative programming, so if you think you've got what it takes, apply now to host a panel or screening at the show. Make sure it's kick ass though, as panel and screening slots are in high demand! And when you’re putting together your panelists, keep in mind that we value fresh voices and diverse perspectives: if everyone on your panel looks and sounds just like you, you may want to rethink your approach. So set a couple reminders now and make sure your submissions are in early. You'll hear back from the team by late January with a decision on your submission - we know, the anticipation is killing you. In the meantime, the ReedPop team is just an email away. So if you have any questions or concerns while you wait, feel free to drop a line to our Content Team at email@example.com May the odds be ever in your favor! Deadline: Monday November 13, 2023, at 5:00 PM Pacific Time. Applicants will hear back about their submission by Thursday December 14, 2023. Important Info:
Complimentary badges are given to Panelists who don't already have another type of badge (Exhibitor, Artist Alley, Pro, etc.,) up to six per panel, including the moderator. Sorry - we aren't able to provide badges for plus 1's and we don't pay for speaking fees, travel, lodging, or meals. Panelists can be changed out at any time.
