We are no longer accepting WonderCon Anaheim 2019 professional applications. All applications and verification materials were due by January 16, 2019.


To receive important information from our professional registration department, sign in to your Comic-Con Member ID account and select the "OPT-OUTS" option on the "My Account" tab. Make sure you have not checked the "Email Opt-Out" box. If you have selected to opt out of email notifications from Comic-Con, you will not be notified of important registration updates.

Before you may register for WonderCon Anaheim 2019, you must first determine your professional 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”. If you are a first-time professional applicant, no "Professionals" tab will be displayed. 

If your professional verification status is NOT DUE: Log in to your Comic-Con Member ID account, select the "Professionals" tab, and click the WonderCon Anaheim 2019 "Click here to register your badge now!" link. Be sure to register your guest badge(s) when you submit the online request form. You cannot return to the online registration system at a later date to request guest badges.

All professional badges registered on or after February 14, 2019 must be picked up onsite at the Anaheim Convention Center. Only the registering professional will be allowed to pick up badges, including guest badges. Guests of professionals cannot pick up their own badge. Please bring your registration confirmation and a photo ID to the Professional Registration Area in Hall E when you arrive. You will need your confirmation to access the Anaheim Convention Center. Badge pick-up hours are included on your confirmation. 

If your professional verification status is DUE or you are applying as a FIRST-TIME PROFESSIONAL: All applications were due by January 16, 2019. If you applied before this date, please allow 3 - 4 weeks from this date for your application to be reviewed. If you did not submit an application, we are unable to accept additional applications at this time. If you have questions regarding a previously submitted application, please contact

WonderCon Anaheim Professional Terms & Conditions

The only way to apply for a professional badge is to submit a “WonderCon Anaheim 2019 Application for Professionals,” and verification materials and be approved by Comic-Con International before the deadline date. Professionals must provide verification materials demonstrating their continued qualifying work in the industry every three years.

Professional verification and approval is ultimately at the discretion of Comic-Con International.

A WonderCon Anaheim professional badge is good for entry to all of the events held at WonderCon Anaheim (space permitting). The WonderCon Anaheim professional badge, however, does not allow for early entry into the Exhibit Hall, programming rooms, events, or guaranteed seating. Please keep in mind that professional registration is a courtesy and your WonderCon Anaheim professional badge is non-transferable. You may not transfer or sell your WonderCon Anaheim professional badge. A professional badge has no monetary value and you are not entitled to a refund of any amount for your complimentary professional badge. Duplicate badges of any type are not allowed. Lost or undelivered badges may be replaced onsite in the Professional Registration Area.

As always, the issuance of a professional badge is at the sole discretion of Comic-Con International/ WonderCon Anaheim.
