• BronyCon General Update and Flash Badge Sale


    BronyCon has added a bunch of new stuff on the charity and press front, but the main relevant bit of information for all of you is the flash sale they are running until June 2nd. Which is pretty long for a flash sale. I'm not complaining though!

    Infos below.






    BRONYCON LAUNCHES PRESS APPLICATIONS, CHARITY SUBMISSIONS, TELEGRAM CHANNEL, AND BADGE FLASH SALE

    (BALTIMORE) - While we anxiously await our next special passengers to join us on the road to BronyCon 2018, we’ve got a slew of announcements for you. Today, BronyCon is officially launching press applications and charity item submissions. We’ve also have a new announcement channel on Telegram that we’ve rolled out with exciting exclusives and are currently running a flash sale on 3-Day badges until June 2nd.

    The application for members of the press to apply for credentials at our July event can do so at bronycon.org/press. Members of the press who are accepted will have access to press conferences with select guests of honor and will be given a distinct badge at the convention to aid them in their coverage of the event.

    Press applications will be open for one month and close on June 25. After that, the accepted groups will be notified and given further instructions and details regarding what to do in Baltimore.

    BronyCon has once again partnered with Maryland-based CureSearch for Children's Cancer to host this year’s annual Charity Auction. All the proceeds will go directly to CureSearch and any interest persons can donate an item to the auction. Accepted items can include include art (posters, prints, plushies, etc), unique merchandise and must be G to PG rated items. One of the highlights from last year’s auction  was a 14k white, yellow and rose gold Rainbow Dash cutie mark pendant by artist Silver Slinger.

    Those interested in more information or having their work featured in the show can visit bronycon.org/events/charity.

    In other news, BronyCon has launched an announcement channel on Telegram! Those with accounts on the service will be able to keep up with the latest BronyCon announcements including those related to guests and events. BronyCon Design Team member Trish Forster has also created a unique set of stickers for users to have access to on the app featuring Hoof Beatz, Mane Event and Blank Canvas.

    One of those announcements is also that BronyCon is giving those who haven’t bought a badge to BronyCon a reason to do so this week. Our standard 3-Day badge will increase in price on Saturday, June 2nd. Until then, those who wish to purchase a either a standard 3-Day badge or a 3-Day PLUS badge can get $5 off by heading to https://bronycon.org/redeem and using the code word “horse.”
