APPLY TO BE A PROFESSIONAL COMIC GUEST
Join us and apply to CALGARY EXPO for complimentary space as a Featured, Special, or Appearing Comic Book Guest in the Professional Artist Alley Section.

If you are interested in applying to be a Guest in another section of the event (such as Cosplay, as an Author Guest, Celebrity Guest), complete this form and it will be forwarded to the appropriate member of our team for review.

Please be sure to list all of your qualifications as per the form. We will review third-party sources to verify your credentials and publishing credits. Please provide as much information as possible and clearly indicate why you qualify for Guest status. Credits should be current (three calendar years before the event date) unless we determine you qualify for ‘Legend’ status.

You will be contacted by a member of our team once a decision has been made.

PLEASE NOTE:

  • Approval for space does not include travel and/or accommodations and should be discussed prior to application with a Guest Coordinator.
  • Unless you have been invited by a Guest coordinator, all professionals must apply to CALGARY EXPO.
