Immerse yourself in the heart of fandom engagement with our fan-led panels. These sessions, led by passionate enthusiasts, offer a unique platform for fans to share their insights, theories, and love for all things anime. Explore diverse perspectives and connect with fellow aficionados in these dynamic discussions that celebrate the collective spirit of our community. 

Main panel presenter gets 1 free weekend pass plus 1 dessert ticket that is redeemable at one of our high-end dessert vendors (think homemade macarons, cupcakes, cookies). You’re sweet for presenting a panel, we’re sweet with you! And parking at the venue is free. 

If accepted to participate, you will receive a link that will allow you to create a profile on the event website that includes adding photos and videos as well as sharing your background as part of our marketing of the contest.
