Welcome to Ogden UnCon! Our convention does more than just entertain. One of our core goals is to lend a helping hand to local artists, authors, and actors. We lovely refer to these creators as ConArtists. Through programs like our Pitch Fest and ReelGuru Experience Ogden UnCon puts artists in front of industry professionals who can make a difference in their careers and lives.
Our workshop instructors are professionals who actually work in the field. VIP Pass holders can register for these workshops for free, but space is limited. Regular ticket holders are welcome to purchase passes for these workshops, but again, space is limited.
The ReelGuru Experience will culminate with a talent search, with three winners being cast in an actual paying project! The talent search will consist of 3 categories: ages 5-14, 15-25, 25 and above. Judged by Catrine McGregor, Madalyn Van Valkenburgh, and another judge.
Ogden UnCon's Pitch Fest Workshop is a hosted by the very professionals to whom writers pitch their projects. These literary agents, publishers, and acquisition editors will school you on what impresses and what falls short.
