To receive information from our professional registration department, sign in to your Member ID account and select the “OPT-OUTS” option on the "My Account" tab. Make sure you have not checked the “Email Opt-Out” box. If you have selected to opt-out of email notifications from Comic-Con, you will not be notified of important registration updates.
Before you may apply or register for WonderCon Anaheim 2015, you must first determine your professional verification status.  All professional applicants fall into one of two categories: First-Time Applicant or Returning Professional.
To determine your category, log in to your Comic-Con Member ID account and click the "Professionals" tab. If you are a returning professional, your member class will be “Professional” and your professional verification status will be “DUE” or “NOT DUE” (see examples above). If you are a first-time professional applicant, no "Professionals" tab will be displayed and you must submit a professional application by March 18, 2015.  
If your Professional Verification Status is NOT DUE: Simply log in to your Comic-Con Member ID account, select the "Professionals" tab, and click the WonderCon Anaheim 2015 “Click here to register your badge now!” link. Be sure to register your guest badge(s) when you submit the online request form. You cannot return to the online registration system at a later date to request guest badges. 
If your Professional Verification Status is DUE or you are applying as a FIRST TIME PROFESSIONAL: The WonderCon Anaheim Professional Application Period is now closed.  We cannot accept additional applications for WonderCon Anaheim 2015 at this time.
