New for 2023
We’ve made some changes to our process and acceptance criteria. Please read the below carefully before applying and remember that due to the large volume of applications, creator passes are issued at the discretion of MCM Comic Con.
WHAT IS THE CREATOR PASS?
Creator Pass is a complimentary ticket to attend the show on all three days, offered to pop culture content creators with an engaged following who are actively planning to create content at and promote their appearance at MCM Comic Con.
Please note: due to increased popularity in recent years, our creator pass is very limited.
MCM Comic Con Creator Pass is open to individuals who take an active role in the pop culture world; namely social media influencers, content creators, and vloggers who are attending specifically to cover MCM Comic Con.
Applicants will be reviewed based on the following criteria:
- Size of social media following on at least 2+ platforms
- Level of engagement of posts
- Previous posts and promotion of attendance at MCM
- Submitted reason for wanting to attend
Applications will be reviewed across all submitted criteria as well as content relevance, post frequency, platform-specific followers, and overall engagement.
We’re looking for creators with an active following passionate about cosplay, comics, anime or anything directly relevant to MCM Comic Con.
If not you may not qualify, as we offer creator passes exclusively to those covering the event.
If not you may not qualify, as we offer creator passes to creators actively talking about MCM.
This does not guarantee acceptance this year. If you did attend as a creator in 2022, please be sure to detail in the form the coverage you produced at or in promotion of the show.
Applications must be submitted separately and will be reviewed on an individual basis. If you need team members to accompany you, they must apply separately and aren’t guaranteed a pass.
CREATOR PASS ACCESS
As with all ReedPop events, MCM Comic Con is a fans first event, which means your creator badge allows access to the event as long as space is available. Your creator badge DOES NOT allow:
- Early or special access or guaranteed seating at MCM Comic Con
- The ability to cut lines
- Free access into any events requiring an additional ticket (unless otherwise stated or invited)
- Guaranteed seating at panels and events
- Access to talent or back of house
Submitting an application does not guarantee approval. MCM Comic Con reserves the right to approve or deny any application and limit the number of creator badges provided to any organisation or individual. Every individual applying for an MCM Comic Con creator badge may only apply once.
Each badge is issued individually and is non-transferable and non-resellable. Any individuals caught transferring or selling their creator badge will be disqualified from creator badges at future MCM and ReedPop events.
All creator registrations are subject to approval. You will be notified if you have been approved or denied for a creator badge within 21 business days of when you submitted your application. If you have been approved, additional information regarding creator badge distribution will be provided in your confirmation email and receipt.
After reading this page, if you believe you fit the criteria and you intend to promote and attend MCM please click through to the online form which follows. Complete this form in its entirety.
Incomplete applications will not be approved. If you’re applying with a team, each person needs to apply and be approved separately.
We highly recommend that you apply early, because we will reach maximum capacity for creator badges prior to MCM Comic Con.
There will be no onsite creator registration at MCM Comic Con.
Creator passes are issued on a case-by-case basis – if you have a team, such as a photographer or videographer, they must apply separately and will be reviewed on their own merit. Due to the large volume of applications, creator passes are issued at the discretion of MCM Comic Con.
And remember: Answer every question as truthfully and completely as you can. Please provide as much and as detailed information as you can. Incomplete and vague applications will not be approved.
You will be notified if you have been approved or denied for a creator badge within 21 business days of when you submitted your application. If 21 business days have passed or you have a different type of query, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’ve made changes to our application in 2023. Please read this page carefully before applying.
