Just when you thought it was safe to put your money back in the bank and lock away your geeky savings for another year… Oz Comic-Con is back! And once again they have TWO family passes to giveaway: one for Sydney and one for Brisbane.
Before you “tl;dr” to the competition details at the end, check out the preview details below for both Sydney and Brisbane:
- TV and film guests, including: Jenna Coleman (Doctor Who), Jason Momoa (Aquaman), David Giuntoli, and Bitsie Tulloch (Grimm);
- Comics and published guests, including: Nicola Scott, Kylie Chan, Christopher Sequeira, Wolfgang Bylsma, and Paul Abstruse;
- Plenty of workshops and panels, including: Gaming Zone, Family Room, Cosplay competitions, Twitch workshop stage, and plenty of local artists in the Artists’ Alley.
While there are always plenty of reasons to attend geeky conventions, Oz Comic-Con is super popular because it’s so family friendly! Think of it as a combination of Supanova’s mainstream appeal, SMASH!’s great array of activities, and PAX Aust’s community vibe. Put all of that together with a gorgeous Sydney backdrop and you have a pretty awesome convention for the whole family. (*cough* Yeah, Brisbane is a nice city too…)
Oz Comic-Con has always been a big family event. I especially love the Family Room filled with activities and family-friendly entertainment in one spot. There is also the annual Kids Cosplay Parade, allowing even the tiniest cosplay artists the opportunity to bring their favorite character to life.
Oz Comic-Con is a national convention, held across various venues throughout the year. The next event is in Brisbane on September 23-24 at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre. The following weekend is in Sydney on September 30 and October 1 at the Sydney International Convention Centre. Tickets are still available through the Oz Comic-Con website, but if you’re feeling lucky we have TWO family passes to giveaway, thanks to the Oz Comic-Con crew. That’s ONE family pass to attend the Brisbane event and ONE family pass to attend the Sydney event (family being two adults and two kids).
First up–this competition is open to AUSTRALIAN RESIDENTS ONLY. GeekMom/GeekDad is an international site, so it is pretty darn awesome when we can share the love with our readers in various countries outside the United States of America too.
Competition entries are via the Rafflecopter below: We need your name and email address (as per usual). PLUS you also need to leave a comment below, on this GeekMom page–we need to know your preferred venue (Sydney or Brisbane) AND we want to know your favorite childhood geek-love, the one you sooooooooo want to share with your kids at any geeky convention. It could be She-Ra and her mighty steed, Swift-Wind. Perhaps you were more of a Battle of the Planets fan? Or do you get a kick out of racing your kids on Mario Kart? Tell us in the comments below AND enter the Rafflecopter. I’m going to be cross-referencing our winners across both…
Competition closes Sunday, September 10, 2017 at 9 pm Sydney Time. Big thanks to the Oz Comic-Con crew for the opportunity.
WE HAVE OUR WINNERS!!
