Pretty much what the title says. Smiling

We are now accepting Panel and Programming submissions for Anthrocon 2016. Have an idea for something that you would like to present a panel about? Or perhaps an event that you would like to host? Please, fill out this form and we'll follow up with you:

 

Thanks!

I know it's been done in the past so I'll ask here before submitting a panel: Is anyone else planning on running a younger furs meet and greet panel?

I wouldn't worry about whether someone else is planning on running a panel, go ahead and submit your panel. If there are similar panels suggested the programming staff will contact those people that want to run the panel. And if no one else puts in to run a panel like yours you will be ahead of the game.

Typing while tired is something I need to work at... Submitted my idea, I'd be more than okay with running it if selected. Thank you!

This year I hope we get in the book. Though we still had a decent turn-out for being the silent Doctor Who panel. Sticking out tongue

A friend and I run the the Young Furs panel, but it would be great if we had another person to help out. More and more people show up each year and it can get hectic. The more help, the better!

Dumb question, but do you have to pay to do this?

You do not have to pay anything to suggest or run a panel at Anthrocon.

Forgive me for being a potential snitch but I saw a GoFundMe for ~$3,000 I think saying they needed money to run their panel when it hasn't even been confirmed yet.

Are you sure about that, Sharky? I'd be a little suspicious myself if you DIDN'T smell fishy! Eye-wink

There is no charge to run a panel at AC.
On the other hand, there is no compensation or payment
for running a panel at AC-
other than the satisfaction of a job well done and
the appreciation of the participants.
AC is fan-based, and fan-run, and this keeps expenses
low- which is good for the fans!
Imagine an AC with 5x the cost for attendees!

I just submitted a suggestion for both an Avian and a Dragon fursuit photoshoot. If the get selected, please don't schedule them too close together! Smiling

You can suggest that as a panel, if you'd like to run it!

We also have a dedicated Fursuit Photo Room, to note, where individual or group photos can be taken: http://www.dragonscales.com/gallery/thumbnails.php?album=67

Those are the two that I am personally interested in, and since they are more unusual than Wolves or Foxes I didn't know if anyone would have pre-arranged something. I'm sure there will be many other group photoshoots, though.

I got an email around the 10th (didn't see it until now because it went straight to spam) that says it's from and wants me to fill out a form. Is that something I do? Sorry, first time applying.

IIRC,
yes. For every panel that's being proposed, someone has to fill the form.
If you re-do a panel from a previous year, you have to re-fill the form,
but that's easy since you know what to write from the previous year.

What is the cut off date for requesting a panel?

I plan on running my first panel at a smaller con and if it goes well I would like to take it to AC.

Generally the programming deadline is a month before the conbook deadline (they need time to work out the schedule, etc.), so it'd be wise to plan on sometime around the end of March as the cutoff date.
