Do you have ALL THE KNOWLEDGE about the world of Harry Potter?  Are your Muggle-born friends constantly turning to you for advice navigating the ever-shifting staircases of Hogwarts? Do you secretly have lesson plans ready for the day you get hired as the new Defense Against the Dark Arts professor?  
Or do you just know a lot about the wonderful world of Harry Potter and want to share it with the Dashcon attendees?

Whatever your particular brand of HP love, the Harry Potter committee at Dashcon is looking for a few friendly, knowledgeable, and FUN people to be panelists at a Q&A session for fans of all ages.  Whether your specialty is the etymology of spells, the use of folklore in character names, or your memorization of the Marauder’s Map - feel free to apply as a panelist!
We need your help!

Hello! The YouTube Committee has two panels that need to be staffed! “The Other Side of YouTube” is a panel where we’ll have some smaller YouTubers talking about how they interact with their viewers, who influenced them to make a channel, and what they aim for with their videos. We also have “Video Making 101” where we want some people to talk about the best ways to make and edit videos for YouTube purposes! Some tips for cameras, easy to use programs, and just general things to keep in mind when making a video will be discussed. If you think that you have skills or are suited for either panel please apply here!
We want you and we need you <3

Hey Guys! We have three panels that need some major panelist action!
-Video Game Plots will be a panel about how to write good video game stories and it’ll probably touch on some common plot points and twists and how to make them original! If you want to apply for this panel, make sure you’ve got some writing experience and a general idea about video game plots!
-Whose Game is It? will actually be more like a trivia panel than the actual show the panel title references. There will be lots of questions with game references and fandom jokes! There may even be some lame prizes! For this panel we will need someone to read out the questions and do some general show host-y things!
-Hidden Treasures: Video Games You Never Played is going to be a panel about some lesser known games that are actually really good! For this panel we want someone who’s played some not as popular games and knows their way around finding these precious items.
But really, if you think you’re equipped well enough to host any of these panels, please apply here! It’ll be loads of fun and there’s some cool stuff that comes with being a panelist!
Thank You!

The Disney/Dreamworks committee is excited to announce the Disney vs. Dreamworks panel for DashCon 2014! Here, panelists will discuss the strengths and weaknesses of American animation studios Disney and DreamWorks (and others too!), and the different areas each studio has chosen to focus on. No bias here - we at the committee love both studios, and we want a fair and lively discussion, not a hate session. 

If you think you have what it takes, come apply at the DashCon website and show us what you’re made of! Remember: panelists who draw at least 100 attendees to their panels will have their badge comped for the day - that is, they’ll be refunded the value of that day’s badge. Good luck, and we look forward to seeing you!

The Disney/Dreamworks committee is excited to announce a Rise of the Brave Tangled Dragons panel for DashCon 2014! This panel is ask-a-character format, so we’re calling for cosplayers to audition for places on the panel. We need to fill all four main character slots; secondary characters will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Remember: every panelist that pulls at least 100 attendees to their panel will have their badge comped for the day - that is, a refund of the cost of that day’s badge. Grab your bows and frying pans and head to the DashCon website to apply today!

We’ve spoken with our venue this morning, and they’ve officially subverted the ordinance that requires hotel guests to be 21 to check in. YOU ONLY NEED TO BE 18 TO CHECK IN TO OUR HOTEL!
This is new information to us. We weren’t even aware they were trying to accomplish this for us, but we’re extremely excited that they have. This, however, is a special circumstance for DASHCON ONLY. You MUST say you are with us for this to apply to you. 
Thank you to the Village of Schaumburg for allowing us to do this and the Renaissance Schaumburg for facilitating it!

RE: Post going around about a certain Chicago-area con-goer

dashcon:

We’ve been asked multiple times, both internally and externally, to address a post circulating Tumblr, as it concerns a Chicago-area con-goer with a reported history of harassing cosplayers, specifically female cosplayers.

Legally speaking, unless someone is a registered sex offender or the like, we cannot refuse anyone entry to a public event. However, we do have rules in place that allow us to eject someone for harassing or otherwise mistreating our attendees. Such behaviour will not be tolerated.

That said, we will have a plethora of volunteers readily available who have quick access to more-than-adequate amounts of security. We’re doing everything in our power to make certain that any seemingly bad situation can be nipped in the bud, and hopefully, most can be subverted before they even occur. We will also make our no harassment policy and “cosplay doesn’t equal consent” position well-known and ensure they are prominently displayed as a reminder to potential offenders. The safety, security, and comfort of our attendees are incredibly important to us.

If you wish to share the names of anyone with us who you believe we should look into for the sake of security, please don’t hesitate to let us know. You can always request that an ask remain private, or email us at admins@dashcon.org. We would never compromise anyone’s safety by making private concerns public or drawing attention to the person who alerted us to a possible issue.

While we had already seen and discussed the post that was submitted to us earlier tonight, we appreciate having it brought to our attention again. We would much prefer to be told about such issues multiple times than not at all. To the person who submitted it and anyone who may do something similar in the future, you have our gratitude.
