Our mission is to put forth the best programming for our community and to do so, we have a thorough screening process of all panel submissions.

Application Completeness
For us to properly review your submission, please provide us with an accurate and complete application with a recent recording of your complete presentation and/or all supporting media and documentation of your panel content.

The panelist names that are used for publications, promotion, and social media will be cited from your application, so please make sure all of your information is correct and not misspelled.

If your submission is not filled out completely, it may be subject to immediate dismissal. We reserve the rights to dismiss any application without further explanation.

Age Requirement
All panelists must be 18 years of age or older on the day of the panel.

Please note that, should your panel be accepted, you will be granted up to four (4) badges on your panel presentation day. Having multiple panel submissions accepted and/or high-quality content panels allow for you to earn (for yourself) the use of badges for other days at the convention. If your panel has more than four (4) panelists, please reach out to us at

Acceptance of your panel does not entitle you to complimentary lodging, parking, or food at Anime California 2019.

If you have already claimed your panelist badge and fail to host your scheduled panel, you will be barred from purchasing the next day’s or year’s badge until you pay for the badge used on your panel day. This applies to any co-panelists from the cancelled panel who have claimed their badges, as well.

Changes to Panel Information
If you have any changes or updates to your information or your panelist’s information, please contact us immediately. We strive to respond in 24 hours and up to 48 hours during busy times (con weekends) and on issues that require additional research.

You, as the main panelist, are required to physically check in 15-30 minutes prior to the start of your panel. If there is a delay in your arrival, please let us know as soon as possible.

Response to Your Application
We will notify you by email whether your panel submission has been accepted, waitlisted, or rejected. If accepted, you will be informed of the time and day of your scheduled panel. You will also receive official paperwork to confirm your participation. If you have not heard back from us by April 12th, please email us at
