Wanted: Your ideas and skills at TwitchCon 2018
What if we told you you could bring your very own panel to life this year at TwitchCon? You’d probably just believe us because we ask you every single year, but still… it’s pretty cool!
Starting today, we’re accepting your proposals right here for awesome stuff to do at TwitchCon. Sure, we’re cooking up plenty of our own ideas too, but this is your show, and it just wouldn’t be complete without some ideas that came straight from the community.
If your ideas are a bit more hands-on, that’s great too! Artist Alley will be open for business once again, so apply to feature your work and sell awesome art directly to the community. We’re also hosting our annual Cosplay Contest with a giant prizepool over $70,000, and speedrunning is joining the party in San Jose with GDQ Express. If you’ve got the skills for any or all of these of these, we want to hear about it. Especially if you can somehow do all three at once.
For panel submissions, our esteemed TwitchCon committee will review every one and select the best of the best. If yours is selected, you’ll be notified by no later than August 3, plus you and all participants will be given TwitchCon speaker badges on the house. Additionally, if the TwitchCon team thinks there’d be a good match, they may put a featured speaker or two on your panel. You’d be notified of this by August 3 as well, so don’t worry about Ninja showing up on your panel unannounced or anything like that.
One last thing: we strongly encourage waiting to purchase a TwitchCon ticket until you know whether you’re speaking/arting/competing or not. We aren’t offering refunds on badges, so holding off until the August 3 notification date is the best way to go. Don’t worry. We’ll save a seat for you.
Speaking of seats, tickets go on sale early July! Get notified when they’re available by signing up for the newsletter on our shiny new TwitchCon website.
