Just wanted to let everyone know, if you haven't heard already.
We announce with heavy hearts that Zipcon 2022 will be canceled due to a lack of volunteers and COVID-19 restrictions. We were really looking forward to holding it in person this year, but these circumstances are out of our control.
Zipcon is four weeks away. February 19th. Hope you're ready for it.
See you soon,
A friendly reminder:
The deadline to become an artist, panelist or dealer is Friday, December 31st 2021.
Hope to see you soon!
Zipcon 2022 is fast approaching! We've got a couple updates to share.
The University of Akron's Covid policy dictates that masks MUST be worn in indoor public spaces regardless of vaccination status (except while eating). As Zipcon is a student-run convention, we will expect our attendees to adhere to this rule.
It's unlikely that there will be lockdowns again, but in the case that there are, we'll be switching back to the same online-only format we used last time.
Please keep an eye out for any future updates and more details about our Covid policy, both here and on other social media.
We'll be closing the application forms for panelists, artists, and dealers next Friday, December 31st. If you want to be one of those but haven't submitted anything, make sure you do so!
Panelists can apply here:
Artists and Dealers can apply here:
Thank you for your time! We hope to see you soon!

Vendor forms and volunteer forms will be coming out in October. Zipcon is scheduled for Feb 19th, 2022.
The tentative date will be changed to Saturday Feburary 19th 2022. This was due to the conflict with another con and we don't want to have vendors & everyone to worry about having to schedule between two different events. Zipcon will not be rescheduled going forward.
Hello Everyone! I hope everyone is safe and healthy. The next Zipcon is tentatively planned for February 12th, 2022. It will be in person. Changes may occur as we are still in a pandemic. The panelist and vendor forms will be updated shortly on Zipcon's website. Please feel free to reach out to for any questions you may have.
Hope to see you all this year!

Hello everyone! Friendly reminder that artist and panelist applications are due at the end of the month for Zipcon.
Hello! Good morning/afternoon/night. I hope everyone is doing well. For Zipcon 2021, we have made a general interest form about how you would prefer to attend Zipcon! We will be on discord and VRchat, but we want to know how many of people are interested in each, among other questions. VRchat does not require a VR setup, and the app is free on steam. Please fill out the form at your earliest convenience! It is attached below.
It has come to our attention that Discord is not secure enough to send sensitive information over and are in the process of finding a more secure way to confirm people’s ages. We are in the process of testing more secure methods and will make an announcement about it soon. The previous message about dming on discord has been deleted to avoid confusion.
Panelist, artist, and dealer submission forms are now open! They can be found on our website linked below under "Artist and Dealer Registration" and "Panelist Registration" respectively. You can also find the rules for panelists, artists, and dealers on those same pages.

Starting this year, in addition to the normal form we have you sign when arriving to Zipcon, ALL minors will also have to have their parent or guardian sign a minor consent form for them, at the con. Upon doing so, the minor will be given a wristband to wear that the parent or guardian has to write their phone number on. This is in addition to the normal badge and lanyard.
In addition, starting at 6pm, Zipcon will be considered an 18+ event. Minors will be asked to leave at that point. The time of the Cosplay Masquerade will be changed to accommodate this.
