Professional Registration is now closed

Are you a Librarian or Educator? We have a program designed specifically for you.

Clark Kent, Bruce Wayne and Tony Stark all had day jobs. You’re in good company.

ECCC welcomes professionals across the full spectrum of pop culture industries and is happy to provide a professional badge to approved artists, buyers, creators, editors, educators, librarians, licensors, producers, publishers, retailers and writers currently working, or retired from comics and popular arts, within the industry.

Please note: professional badges do not guarantee seating and do not include admission to any ticketed special events. Special event tickets must be purchased separately.

Please review the following information carefully.

Application Process

There will be no onsite professional registration at Emerald City Comic Con. Should you wish to attend as a professional, you MUST apply online and complete the full application. Pro badges are limited and once capacity is reached, professional registration will close.

Your application will then be reviewed by the ECCC professional registration team and you will be notified within 14 days if you have been approved for a professional badge. Should you have any questions, contact the ECCC professional team.

Your approval for a professional badge at previous editions of ECCC does not guarantee you a professional badge in 2018. We’ll need you to complete the entire professional badge application regardless of whether you have been approved previously. Applying as a professional for Emerald City Comic Con does not guarantee that you will be provided with a professional badge for ECCC 2018. Your application will be reviewed and a response on your status sent to you within 14 days of applying.

All application decisions are final. ECCC reserves the right to approve or deny all applications. This decision is final and cannot be appealed. Please know, you will not be able to submit further information later on if your application is not approved, so please fill out the form fully and with as much information as possible.

We are not able to offer the opportunity to purchase additional, or 'plus one' ECCC badges.

Each professional badge is issued individually and is non-transferable. You may not transfer or sell your ECCC professional badge, and any individuals conducting such behavior will be disqualified from professional badges at future ReedPOP events.

Professional badges are limited in nature and will be issued only to professionally employed adults.

If your application is approved, you will be prompted by email to complete your registration. Part two of your registration must be completed within 14 of acceptance.

Applications that are not finalized within 14 days will be cancelled and a badge for ECCC 2018 will not be provided.

Again, you will not be able to submit further information later on if your application is not approved, so please fill out the form fully and with as much detail as possible.
