Upcoming Deadlines Reminder!

Monday, January 28th, 2013

It’s now only 52 days until Zenkaikon, and many deadlines are quickly approaching! We thought it might be a good time to post a reminder of some of the ones that are upcoming:

  • AMV Contest Submission – Have a video you want to enter into this year’s AMV Contest? The deadline for submissions is less than 12 days away on February 8, 2013. Categories include Action, Drama, Upbeat, Romance, Comedy, & Most Annoying! We can’t wait to see your entries!
  • Last Pre-Registration Discount Deadline – The end of the last pre-registration discount is quickly approaching, on February 18, 2013. This is your last chance to get a discount by pre-registering, as all registrations after that date will be at the at-door membership rate. Save $10 on your membership by registering early!
  • Masquerade Registration – The Masquerade is one of the highlight events of the convention! Cosplayers perform before a crowd of their fellow attendees in a variety of skits, and are judged on performance and craftsmanship. Working on a skit? Want a chance to perform? The deadline to register online is on February 23, 2013.
  • Cosplay Dating Game Signup – Want a chance to be a part of the fun and exciting Cosplay Dating Game? We are still seeking great cosplayers and roleplayers to participate! The deadline to sign up is February 23, 2013.
  • Hotel Registration - Planning to stay at a hotel during Zenkaikon? There is still room in our overflow hotel block at the Lancaster Arts Hotel. The Zenkaikon block has a special room rate and includes a number of perks! However, the deadline for booking in the block is February 25, 2013, after which the rooms will be released back to the general public and the discount will no longer be available. More details are on the hotel page!
  • Gofer Registration – Want to help us make Zenkaikon 2013 the best one yet? You can volunteer as a gofer and assist the Zenkaikon staff with a variety of tasks required to make the convention happen. Gofers can earn a variety of perks depending on how many hours they volunteer, including partial or full reimbursement of their membership fees! The deadline to register as a gofer is March 1, 2013.

In addition to this post, you can also keep an eye on the right-hand column of our website homepage, which lists all the upcoming deadlines and is updated as needed.

We’ll see you in March!

First Pre-Registration Discount Deadline September 4th!

Thursday, August 30th, 2012

This is the last weekend to purchase a Zenkaikon membership for the lowest pre-registration rate! Zenkaikon standard memberships are only $40 until Tuesday, September 4, 2012.

By pre-registering, you will get a discount on your membership, have faster check-in at the event, and may be entered into special contests only for pre-registered members.
