Dragon Con 2017 - Guest Application Form

We appreciate your interest in attending Dragon Con as a featured Guest. Please complete this form in order to be issued a VIP Pre-Registration badge, eligible for programming, and/or Walk of Fame/Comic Artist Sketch Tables. This form is an application for Guest status for the 2017 show only. Completion of this form does not guarantee Guest status for the event. All Guest forms will be reviewed and you will be notified as to your status for 2017. Due to space constraints, all guests requesting space on the Walk of Fame, and the Comic and Pop Artist Alley will be juried and notified as soon as possible. NO guarantees are made in regard to space on the Walk of Fame, or Comic and Pop Artist Alley.

Application Deadline: May 31, 2017. No Guest forms will be accepted after this date for the 2017 convention. We encourage you to apply early, because as we get closer to the show there will be fewer guest slots available.
