Professional Badge Registration for 2017 will open in late July.
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. The additional badge must be registered for during the submissions process. Requests for additional badges made after the registration process is complete will not be honored. 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.
