Be Fandom's Next Idol!

We also have a new track of programming to announce we're calling it "Fandom's Next Idol". We are assembling panels of professionals in various groups like Authors, Film Makers, and Artists. You will get a chance to bring your own work up whether that be art, a script, or your next novel and have this tribunal of pros let you know what they think. They can even give you some pointers to improve your skills! Think about it, you'll be able to make that movie pitch you've always had in the back of your head or show off your design for the next big super-hero to real industry professionals! The idea is instead of flocking to a panel to idol worship the professional of your dreams, you will be able to have some real interactive time with our guests...who knows if it all works out YOU could end up being a guest next year! We realize at SiliCon that there is a wealth of fans out there who have some real talent. With a little encouragement and a chance to meet the right people, your aspirations of becoming a pro could come true. Please stay tuned to the website and blog for further updates. We will be adding to this track of programming throughout the year. If you have an specific suggestions or requests, don't hesitate to let us know.
