Panel Ballot

Below you’ll find all the panels you suggested. Well, maybe not you personally, but we hope so. Now your job is to let us know which of the 125 suggestions below you’d like included on the final Escapade schedule, and how strongly you feel about each one. Panel voting is open through January 23, 2023.

If your fandom is not here, or you think the great idea you just had should be included, that’s why we have a Write-In option. Add new suggestions, and if they’re catchy enough, they might make the schedule. 

Those fans who said they “absolutely wanted to mod” are already tagged as mods. You can still volunteer to co-mod. If someone tagged you as a “suggested mod” it’s a compliment, not a commitment. If you accept the invitation, click the “Will Lead” choice. 

If you’re attending in person, be sure to open all four categories (General/Meta, Fandom-specific, Tech/Workshop, and Alternate Programming/Video) to see all the panel suggestions and indicate your interest. Please do NOT vote for online panels, even if you think you might attend them.

If you’re attending online, please scroll down to Online, and only vote there.

When you’re done voting, scroll all the way to the bottom to click the “Submit” button to save your votes. You can come back to this page and update your ballot until voting closes on 1/23.

Share your pets! Online What is one thing we don’t get to do much at in-person Escapade? Show off our pets. This is your chance to share your dog, cat, snake, rat, or other exotic creatures with your fellow fen.
Fanvid Futures (aka vidding 101 for the future) General/Meta Vids? Edits? FMVs? Loops? Reels? What is the current state of fan video as a creative and cultural form? What tools are people using to make fan videos, where are fan videos shared, and what shifts are we seeing — in form, content, sharing practices, etc.– as fans spread out across a wide array of platforms? If you’ve been vidding for a while now, how has your approach and output changed? And if you want to start editing now in the current moment, midst all of this diversity and change, how would you begin?

The Sisyphisian Agonies of Hoyay – Why Does Fandom Never Learns? Fandom Specific Johnlock. Destiel. SuperCorp. ShawRoot. Sterek. Stucky. Clexa. When it comes to hoyoay ships, whether through compulsory heterosexuality or outright tragedy, we make the same mistake over and over: We hang our hearts on the possibility that we will be given a happy ending only to end up with a happy ending only to end up Charlie Brown trying to punt Lucy’s football. Why? Why do we fall for it over and over? Lets discuss the concepts of (un)realistic hope for queer representation in western Media, boundary setting between queer and queer-content-seeking fans in positions as consumers in relation to commercialized narrative art, and the importance of fanworks as a means of self-soothing when the queer narrative has been taken out of the hands of the general population.
