Professional Registration

Clark Kent, Peter Parker, 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 pro badge to approved artists, buyers, creators, editors, educators, librarians, licensors, producers, publishers, retailers and writers currently working, or retired from comics and popular arts.

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

Application Process

There will be one type of pro badge for ECCC 2021. A 4-Day Pro Badge will be available for $25. Your approved application will prompt you to register and choose your ticket type at checkout. You must register and complete registration in order to receive your pro badge.

There will be NO onsite Pro Registration at Emerald City Comic Con. Should you wish to attend as a professional, you MUST apply online and complete the full application. We strongly suggest you apply early, as pro badges are limited. Registration dates and deadlines will be coming soon.

Please be sure to apply with your professional email to confirm that you are employed at the company and/or organization you are applying with. If you a freelancer or contractor and typically use your personal email, that is also acceptable.

Once your application has been submitted, it will be reviewed by the ECCC Pro Reg team and you will be notified within 14 days if you have been approved for a pro badge. Should you have any questions, contact the ECCC Pro Reg team.

Your approval for a pro badge at previous editions of ECCC does not guarantee you a pro badge in 2021. You must complete the entire pro badge application whether you have been approved previously or not. Applying as a professional for Emerald City Comic Con does not guarantee that you will be provided with a pro badge for ECCC 2021. 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 any and all applications. This decision is final and cannot be appealed. You will not be able to submit further information later on if your application is not approved.

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

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

Pro 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 21 business days of acceptance.

Applications that are not finalized within 21 business days will be cancelled and a badge for ECCC 2021 will not be provided.

Approved Professional applications for ECCC March 2020 will not be rolled over to ECCC 2021.

More information for Professional Application for ECCC 2021 will be available closer to the show.
