An important part of our conventions are lectures by experts and readings by well-known authors. Behind it are guests, such as Directors, authors, Tolkien experts, and many other clever and creative minds who give exciting lectures or read from a book. As a rule, there is also a book signing by the author after the respective readings.

You would like to apply with a lecture or a reading at MagicCon? No problem. Just fill in the form below on this page. After receiving your message, we will check whether your lecture or reading is suitable for us. Please be patient until then – it may take some time.

In the past, our graphic artists often forced to use false or bad artwork. The image is used for the website, as well as for the print required in the program booklet.

An original from the camera works best for us (uncompressed). The higher the resolution, the better we can zoom in and cut out. Please send all very large images via WE-TRANSFER (http://www.wetransfer.com) . This is a free file transfer provider that ships up to 2 GB without any problems.

For the final image (head and shoulder) we need a size of 1500x1500 pixels. An image with a height of about 3000 pixels is assumed. The bleed of the image is taken over by our graphics department.
The following rules apply to the image (see also sample image):
  • look into the camera
  • shoulders must be completely visible - no bleed
  • only colour photos. greyscales images will automatically be filtered by the system
  • JPG, PNG, TIF format in high resolution
  • significant file name (e. g. firstname_lastname-1.jpg)
  • by email or We-transfer to: vortrag@fedconevents.com
