Before you may register for a WonderCon Anaheim professional badge, you must first determine your professional verification status.  All professional applicants fall into one of two categories: First-Time Applicant or Returning Professional. To determine your category, log in to your Comic-Con Member ID account and click the "Professionals" tab. If you are a returning professional, your member class will be “Professional” and your professional verification status will be “DUE” or “NOT DUE” (see examples above). If you are a first-time professional applicant, no "Professionals" tab will be displayed.  
If your Professional Verification Status is NOT DUE: Simply log in to your Comic-Con Member ID account, select the "Professionals" tab, and click the WonderCon Anaheim 2014 “Click here to register your badge now!” link. 
If your Professional Verification Status is DUE or you are applying as a professional for the first time:  The professional application deadline of March 28, 2014 has passed. We are no longer accepting professional applications or verification materials for WonderCon Anahei 2014. 

Professional Guest Badges

Professional guest badges have reached capacity, and we do not anticipate that any additional adult guest badges will become available. Junior guests and children (age 17 and under) are free with a professional badge and do not count toward your guest limit. Junior and child badges must be registered onsite at the WonderCon Anaheim Professional Registration Area in Exhibit Hall A. There will be no onsite registration for adult professionals. 

If you have already submitted a “Comic-Con and WonderCon Anaheim Application for Professionals” please allow 3-4 weeks for processing and review.
