Welcome to the information page for panelists here at Cecil Con 2019. If you are interested in running a panel then please make sure you have read through all of our rules and info before filling out the application below, and don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions.

– 2019 Applications are OPEN  –

Rules & Info

– All panel time slots start at the top of the hour, and are 50 minutes in length (to end 10 minutes before the next hour starts).

– All panels must be PG-13.

– Please keep profanity to a minimum or don’t use it at all. Be aware of who your audience is i.e. kids.

– All inappropriate videos/pictures are prohibited.

– If you need any specific equipment, please let us know in advance in the form and we will do the best we can to make sure you have access to what you need.

– Unfortunately, outside technology is extremely difficult to connect to the College’s network and projection systems. We recommend that all media such as music, PowerPoints, and videos be burned to CDs or saved on a flash drive, then we can give you access to school computers more easily.

– All panelists will have a staff member available to them that will help with crowd control, be their contact to Tech Support, and be at the panel to answer any questions the panelist may have.

– Panel Description on the application is what will go on the website and the convention booklet, so please fill that in accordingly. We at Cecil Con reserve the right to edit the descriptions as needed (mainly for space).

– All panelists must be listed and IDs will be checked to verify they are over the age of 18.
