This is your show and for NYCC's historic 2023 edition 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!

Reminder: when you're assembling your panelists, keep in mind that NYCC values fresh voices and diverse perspectives: if everyone on your panel looks and sounds just like you, you may want to rethink your approach.
