So you wanna do a PAX Panel?

Great! We’d love to hear from you, and submissions for PAX Aus 2018 are now open! If you have something to say about gaming and need a crowd, you’ll be hard pressed to find a more passionate, engaged, and thoughtful audience than the tens of thousands of gamers from around the world that converge on PAX. This year we have over a hundred hours of theatre content to be filled.

“But PAX,” you ask, “How do I make sure my panel has the best chance of being accepted?”

Well, that seems like a very convenient inquiry with a questionable anthropomorphization of PAX tacked on to it. But since you asked so nicely…

Each panel is an hour long and we look for speakers who can fill it with energetic, intelligent, and fascinating stuff about gaming. We want things that our audience will find relevant to the gaming industry and gaming culture, from discussion panels to tutorials to live gameplay. It could be a panel on the evolution of character creation. It could be a blindfolded boss rush. It could be a how-to on setting up a podcast studio at home. Get creative!

Now, the fun bit. Hop on over to the submission site, and let us know what you’d like to do at PAX. We’d love to hear all about it.
