DakuCon 2023 Panel Application
All interested panelists must fill out the Submission Form linked below. Once your submission has been received you will receive an email informing you that your panel submission is under review. Panel submissions will close at midnight on October 29th, 2023 and confirmation emails will be sent out by the first week of October. Please note that all panels are subject to review and we do not guarantee that all panels submitted will be accepted. We will reach out via email no later than November 5th, 2023 to inform you if your panel submission has been accepted.
You must be approved for at least one panel to qualify for a complimentary day pass.
You must be approved for at least three panels to qualify for a complimentary weekend pass.
For the minimum of required panels, only up to three members will qualify for a complimentary badge. This rule also applies to large groups-Only the first three members to check in will receive a complimentary badge, even if the group is running more than three panels.
If you are running panels by yourself, you will only receive one badge. You may not enlist a friend as a co-panelist if they are not hosting the panel with you.
All panelists must check-in individually with their IDs to pick up their badges. No one may pick up their badges without an ID.
During the convention anyone who does not show up for their panel will have a one-year panel ban, will have their badge pulled if found during the remainder of the convention, and a strike placed against them indefinitely. Once three strikes are accumulated the person will be permanently banned from the convention.
