Posted by: Andrea D
The Professional Pass application for ECCC 2015 is now available online. Professional Passes are available to those who work in the comics or entertainment industries, and are valid for all three days of Emerald City Comicon (ECCC).

Additionally, in response to feedback from the professional community, we are making professional applications available for half tables in our Artist Alley. If approved, you will receive a complementary half-table (3' of space). Only industry professionals with relevant work experience will be considered. Preference will be given to those who have new comic book titles launching on or around ECCC 2015, and to professionals that did not exhibit with us in 2014. The Pro Table application is here.

Applications have also opened for those who wish to be a credentialed media outlet at ECCC 2015, and you can find our Press Pass application here. Only those approved applicants with valid Press Passes will be allowed to conduct on-site interviews with anyone. All interview requests for Celebrity Guests will need to be pre-screened and approved in advance, and can only be made from approved outlets.
