Comp Policy

 

ICON provides complimentary membership for industry professionals, and membership for one accompanying person at a reduced rate ($30 adult, $20 child).  We anticipate that any professional who is granted complimentary membership will be willing to participate in programming; the intent of these memberships is to facilitate the interaction of pros and fans, for their mutual benefit.

 

If you wish to receive a complimentary membership, please fill in the email form below to confirm that you qualify well before the pre-registration deadline of September 15, 2018, so we can include you in our programming and have badge(s) available. No walk-in comps will be provided. (Unless you are Neil Gaiman.  Maybe.)

 

"Industry professionals" are defined as follows:

 

 

• Authors/writers should meet the requirements for Active membership in the Science Fiction Writers Association (SFWA). (Current membership is not required.)

 

• Published authors who do not meet the above qualifications, but who would like to be considered for complimentary membership, may contact the address above with a brief summary of their publications and any professional writers' society memberships.

 

• Professional artists, editors, gaming pros, comic pros, actors, etc., will be considered on an individual basis and should contact the address above with a brief summary of their qualifications. (Links to your webpage are also helpful.)

 

The following individuals are also provided with complimentary memberships, in recognition of their previous contributions to ICON:

 

 

Rusty Hevelin (always attending in our hearts).

 

• Any of the following six founders of ICON: Mark Moore, Gregory Frost, Dennis Lynch, Mike Miller, Joe Haldeman, Gay Haldeman.
