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!

We're looking for original and creative programming, so if you think you've got what it takes, apply now to host a panel, performance, screening, or workshop at the show. 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. Panel applications are not first-come, first-served. Take the time to submit your Panel Application. Make sure your panel is unique and well thought out! Please keep in mind we highly value diversity of panelist and viewpoints. Each panel is typically one-hour. If your submission requires a different duration, please indicate this in your application.
