PopCult Anime Con is looking for Local Legends, talented New England-based guests with unique backgrounds who love to share their skills with others! Skill set should be relevant to popular culture and/or the fandom convention scene, including but not limited to: Cosplay, Roleplay, Media, Music. Local Legend Guests would be expected to provide a number hours of panels/programming in exchange for comped reg/hotel and other guest perks to be outlined in a contract.
PopCult Anime Con believes in diversity and visibility in today’s pop culture and entertainment world. We want to take a moment to encourage our POC brothers and sisters to come forward and send in their Local Legend resumes! Everyone who signs up is special and will get a thorough look over, but I think we can all agree there’s not enough POC (or men in general) at our cons. Let’s see if we can shake things up a bit!
Interested in being a Local Legend at PopCult Anime Con 2020? Send a resume of your talents, skills and appearances to firstname.lastname@example.org.
