Featured Guest Application
Interested in being a guest at Treklanta?  Here's what you need to know!
Treklanta offers two types of guest status: "Guest of Honor" and "Featured Guest."  Eligibility requirements, what we offer to each type of guest and what we will ask from each type of guest differs.  Please review the information below and fill out and submit the application form below if you would like to apply for Featured Guest status.  Persons who are interested in Guest of Honor status should apply here.

GUEST OF HONOR: Guests of Honor are sometimes referred to as "celebrity guests," "media guests" or "headlining guests."  A Guest of Honor will be someone who is very well known to Star Trek fans and whose appearance at Treklanta can be reasonably expected to attract a paying audience.  Most Guests of Honor are actors who have played one or more roles in some iteration of Star Trek, ranging from series leads (e.g., Tim Russ, Robert Duncan O'Neill) and notable recurring characters (e.g., Carel Struycken, J. G. Hertzler, Robert O'Reilly) to one-time guest-star roles (e.g., Arlene Martel, Sean Kenney) and minor supporting characters (e.g., Jeremy Roberts, James Horan, Conrad Coates).  These persons are often represented by an agent.  Other persons who have worked in the Star Trek franchise and/or have made significant contributions to the franchise or its fandom and are very well known to Star Trek fans may also qualify for Guest of Honor status (e.g., Bjo Trimble, David Gerrold).

FEATURED GUEST: A Featured Guest is typically someone who has worked in or contributed to the Star Trek franchise or Star Trek fandom in some notable way and whose activity, participation or contribution is sufficiently noteworthy to warrant the recognition of a Star Trek convention, the attention of a paying audience and the exposure that would result from both.  Persons who may qualify for Featured Guest status include (but are certainly not limited to) the creators, producers, cast and crew members of certain Star Trek fan films; authors of books or short stories about Star Trek or set in the Star Trek universe published by a commercial publisher (i.e., not self-published); hosts of podcasts that regularly feature guests or topics related to Star Trek; educators who have taught or presented some type of class, course or curriculum related to or based on Star Trek in some way; professional (and in some cases, amateur) costumers, makeup artists, visual designers or similar experts in other creative fields whose experience is related to Star Trek in some way; and other persons with some kind of expertise or special experience related to Star Trek.

Applicants who are granted Featured Guest status will receive prominent display of their name and head shot on our web site, a complimentary full-weekend membership badge, and at least one time slot on our programming schedule to present an event or activity related to their qualifications.  Featured Guests are NOT offered any concession for travel, accomodations, meals or any other expense.  If a Featured Guest is interested in a fan table, one such table will be granted at no cost if it is for promotional and display purposes only, or at a nominal fee if the table is to be used for the sale of any merchandise or if any other financial transaction is conducted at the table for any reason whatsoever, including gifts and donations.
Please fill out and submit this form to apply for Featured Guest status
PLEASE NOTE: A head shot is a required to submit a Featured Guest application.  Your head shot should be a recent color photo that clearly shows your entire head and full face, including both eyes.  There should also be enough space under your chin for us to place your name.  Your head shot should be of just you and not include other people, animals or props.  Hats or other forms of headware must not obsure your face; sunglasses, if worn, must not obscure your eyes.  Your facial expression should be neutral or smiling; it should not be an unnatural or unusual expression, e.g., screaming.  Candid shots of yourself are acceptable if they meet these criteria but traditionally posed portraits are best.  Preferred image file formats are JPG or PNG in RGB mode and the file size should not exceed 2 MB.  Applications for Featured Guest status may be declined if the submitted image file does not meet these requirements.
