The Professional Badge is a courtesy offered to professionals who play an active role in the comics, animation, television, film, book, video game, gaming and toy industries. You must be currently working in the creative field to qualify for a Professional Badge (your last project must have been completed within the last two years). Agents, managers and executives do not qualify for Professional badges. The only way to apply for a professional badge is to submit an online Professional Registration form.
During the application process, you are required to upload verification materials of at least one of your previous projects that was published or manufactured within the last 24 months. This includes documents, images, videos, etc.
Professional Badges are limited and not all applicants who meet the guidelines can be accommodated. Professional verification and approval is ultimately at the discretion of the Stan Lee L.A. Comic Con team.
Each Professional Badge includes one (1) additional courtesy Professional Badge. You may register your Guest's name during the submission process if your Guest will be picking up their badge separately from you. If you leave the Guest's name blank on the submission form, you will be able to register your Guest at the time of badge pickup on the day of the show. Any additional badges beyond these must be purchased.
Please keep in mind that a professional badge is a courtesy and is non-transferable. You may not transfer or sell your professional badge. Transferring or selling your Professional Badge will result in permanent disqualification from all future L.A. Comic Con Professional Badges.
