Panel Application | NYCC 2023
All fields are required.
What makes New York Comic Con of the coolest and best conventions on planet Earth? Besides being home for the latest and greatest in all things pop culture - the answer is YOU! 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.
Be sure to set a couple reminders now and make sure your submissions are in early. You'll hear back from the team by the end of August 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 with NYCC in the subject line.
May the odds be ever in your favor!
Deadline: Friday, August 2, 2023 by 5:00 PM ET.
