ConDor programming will reflect the wide variety of interests of our attendees including SF, fantasy, horror, comics, science, technology, literature, movies, television and art.
ConDor 2019 – Through the Looking Glass: Alternate Realities.
ConDor started in 1993 as San Diego’s very own science-fiction media and literature convention with well-known science-fiction author Octavia Butler as the first literary guest of honor and J. Michael Staczynski as the first media guest of honor. Over the years many authors, artists, actors have been honored at ConDor. The three-day event will feature guests, panels, and many opportunities to interact with other individuals immersed in the science-fiction media and literature community.
There will be a dealers room featuring a wide variety of merchandise from multiple fandoms and there will be fun had by all.
ConDor is a project of C.A.A.S.M. The California Association for the Advancement of Speculative Media, Inc. (C.A.A.S.M) is an IRS 501(c) 3 tax exempt non-profit corporation. Its purpose is to promote an interest in the speculative fiction media (science fiction and fantasy) and provide opportunities to educate and broaden public awareness of this genre. ConDor is run under the auspices of C.A.A.S.M in partial fulfillment of that purpose.
Tickets are now available. Full weekend badges are $30 (plus $3 fee). Special hotel rates of $120/night are available if purchased through the link on the ConDor website. ConDor will be accepting dealer and fan table applications within the next few weeks. Additional information available at: http://www.condorcon.org/.
Due to our small size we do not have a press room, press table or press hours of operation. More information of special programming events will be published here closer to the convention.
Press credentials will be extended to professional journalists and photographers who have been assigned to cover ConDor Con for professional newspapers, magazines, television and radio stations and new media outlets. Due to the large number of free-lance writers, semi-pro writers, fan writers, photographers, and Web developers in fandom, free press memberships cannot be extended to individuals to fandom-only publications. However, individuals who write for any publication, broadcast program or Internet site are welcome to press releases, press kits and assistance from the Press Relations staff.
Journalists who have not been to ConDor will be asked to supply the publication name as well as the name and contact information of the person who assigned them to cover the convention. Members of the press who have attended previous ConDors on a press pass are asked if they have since published an article on ConDor, the publication or website, date and a copy or direct link to the archived article. We also need the name and contact information of who assigned them to cover the upcoming ConDor. A press pass may be given if the writer has published a recent article on ConDor or science fiction conventions in general in a widely read format. Journalists will be given one press pass only. Teens and children 12 and under must be accompanied by a paying adult.
