VidUKon Update: Vidshows, panels, premieres, room bookings and scholarship

This year’s con is getting closer! With that in mind, here are a few things worth knowing:

  • Vidshow and panel submissions are now open, until Monday March 4 2019! Check THIS POST for more details on how to submit an idea.

  • We are also seeking brand new, never-before-seen vids for our flagship Premieres show! Vids can be in any genre, style or fandom. You don't have to be attending or supporting VidUKon to submit a premiere. More information will be available soon, but the deadline for premiering vids will likely be sometime in May.

  • Some rooms have been set aside in the Future Inn Cardiff Bay for VidUKon attendees, at a special con rate. These can be reserved by getting in touch with the hotel by phone or email, and mentioning that you are attending the con and would like one of the VidUKon reserved rooms. These rooms will be held for us until Sunday April 14 2019, so make sure you book before then!

  • Nominations are open for our scholarship! The scholarship offers support to one individual who has not been to the con in the past and would like to attend. Priority is given to Non-UK European applicants, but UK and international vidders and vid fans are also welcome to apply! Nominations will close on Sunday 31 March 2019. Take a look HERE for more details, or to make a donation to the scholarship fund.

  • The VidUKon auction is running again! Kind and awesome vidders can offer their vidding services to be bid on to raise money to contribute to the running of the con. Signups for vidders are running until Saturday 19 January 2019, and bidding will take place between Sunday 20 January 2019 and Saturday 26 January 2019. Sign up or keep an eye on the bidding HERE.

  • If you haven’t had a chance yet, you can register for your attending or supporting membership HERE.

Looking forward to seeing lots of you at the con!
