What Programming are You Submitting to GeekGirlCon ’20?
While most things in our lives are on hold at the moment, one thing that isn’t is our preparation for GeekGirlCon ‘20. Besides all of the behind-the-scenes stuff that our team is working on, we’re also at the point in the year when we’re accepting programming submissions from our community. Submissions close on April 30, so I’m here to ask what panels, workshops, and events y’all have in store for us this year?
If you’re interested in submitting but aren’t sure where to start, I’d suggest first checking out the page on our website and then head over to our Facebook group for past and future GeekGirlCon contributors. I’m pretty sure I recommend it every year, but it’s seriously the perfect place to brainstorm programming ideas, find co-panelists, or troubleshoot the application process.
There are several kinds of submissions we accept, so be sure to look through them to see where your idea best fits:
- Panel Submission: To submit your own panel or presentation for consideration.
- Panelist and/or Moderator Application: To be considered as a panelist or moderator on any panels needing additional participants.
- Performance/Event Submission: To submit an idea for an event or performance (musical performance, variety show, networking event, game show, DJ, etc.).
- Workshop Submission: To submit interactive/educational content (Paint ‘n Take, hands-on wig styling tutorial, learn-to-code hour, etc.).
- Tabletop Game Host Application: To submit a game you/your company created for consideration for the Gaming Floor.
We’re down to just over three weeks until submissions are due, so get to work coraling your co-participants now. And, as always, feel free to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org with questions!
