As a nonprofit organization, Comic-Con/WonderCon Anaheim is able to provide a complimentary professional badge to individuals who meet the published guidelines and who provide verification materials and proof of employment with qualified job titles.
Comic-Con/WonderCon Anaheim process over 12,000 professional applications every year. With this kind of volume, we need to employ temporary staff who may not necessarily be familiar with your personal credits.
If you cannot, or choose not to, provide the required verification materials, we suggest you purchase a badge through general attendee registration. Your application as a professional cannot be processed if you do not provide verification of your work as a professional in comics or related popular arts. Listing your work projects on your application is not considered verification. You must submit qualifying verification materials to support the projects on your application.
Please allow 3 - 4 weeks to process applications and verification materials. All applications are processed in the order in which they are received. If you do not receive a response within 4 weeks, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Make sure to include your Comic-Con Member ID, the date your verification materials were mailed, and a description of the materials you submitted.
To confirm the receipt of your application, please contact email@example.com. Make sure to include your Comic-Con Member ID, the date your verification materials were submitted, whether they were sent via post or electronically, and a description of the materials you submitted.
Comic-Con/WonderCon Anaheim strongly recommends that you email your professional application and verification materials. Should you choose to mail in your application and verification materials, we suggest that you send them via FedEx, UPS, USPS certified mail, or any service that provides a delivery receipt. Comic-Con International/WonderCon Anaheim is not responsible for lost applications and/or materials that were sent without tracking or delivery confirmation.
Online professional registration will close on March 11, 2019. There will be no onsite registration. We encourage you to register prior to February 14, 2019 to take advantage of advance shipping!
