Comic Arts Conference - WonderCon

For 2021, WonderCon is preparing for a live, in-person show, but plan accordingly just in case we must present virtual panels online again.

CONTENT: The Comics Arts Conference welcomes submissions focused on aspects of sequential art, graphic storytelling in the form of comic strips, comic books, and graphic novels. We regret we are unable to accept submissions concentrating primarily on other media or popular culture in general.

EQUIPMENT: The CAC provides a projector with a DVD player and a laptop computer connection (VGA). There will no longer be a laptop on site for your convenience, so you will have to bring your own. We can thus probably accommodate DVDs, CDs, laptops, and flash drives. If your laptop is a Mac, please bring your own video adapter. The laptop computer connection is usually HDMI as well as VGA these days.

REGISTRATION: If your paper is accepted, do not pay for Comic-Con registration. (If you have already paid, we may be able to get that payment refunded to you.) CAC presenters attend Comic-Con with professional passes, with no registration fee for Comic-Con or CAC.

GUEST: You may bring ONE guest who can also attend the entire convention with free registration. After submissions are accepted, we will then ask for your guest information. A guest pass may not be sold or otherwise transferred to anyone other than the individual whose name appears on it.

Please be aware that this SurveyMonkey system does not automatically generate confirmation emails, but we have never known it to fail to store a correctly entered submission.

STRICT DEADLINE: ALL SUBMISSIONS MUST BE RECEIVED BY THE DEADLINE OR THEY WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED, NO MATTER WHO MAKES THE SUBMISSION.

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: DECEMBER 1
