With Open Registration out of the way as of this past weekend, hopes of attending one of the largest geek conventions in the US are pretty slim. BUT that doesn’t mean it should be completely lost. In past years, I’ve come across a few contests that send their lucky winners to the convention, with the addition of a few perks. I will post about them as they come up. This one is courtesy of General Assembly, which specializes in tech classes (e.g. coding, marketing, design, data, etc.). Here’s what the prize includes:
- A $1,000 airline credit
- Three nights accommodation
- Two badges to SDCC
- A $200 transportation credit
- A $500 cosplay credit
- A $200 credit toward any General Assembly class or workshop
- A GA Swag Pack
You can enter the contest here before Sunday, April 23rd. Good luck!

Here’s another opportunity to attend the premiere of the movie in San Diego! Sign up for a VIZIO account and redeem your points to enter. It’s free and you’ll automatically receive 10,000 points, which is more than enough for entry. Contest is open until June 30th. Open to US residents 21 and over only.

Are you good at deciphering codes? No seriously, are you? Then you might have a chance at winning 2 4-day badges for Comic-Con next month in San Diego. Check it out, and let the brain busting begin. No confirmation on area restrictions for the contest, but I’ll update as soon as I hear from them. Hopefully. Good luck!
I came across 2 more contests for the premiere in San Diego next month. Although it’s not a direct ticket to SDCC, it’s still a chance to take part in one of the hottest off site events for the year.
Enterprise Rent-A-Car in collaboration with Paramount Pictures will send 1 winner and a guest to San Diego between July 19 – 21. The prize includes airfare, hotel, ground transportation to and from the hotel, and spending money. This contest is open from now until Wednesday July 6th. Only US residents are eligible. Click here to enter.
Omaze will send 1 winner and a guest to San Diego to not just the premiere, but also to meet the cast and attend the after party. Prize includes airfare and hotel. The only catch is they request a charitable donation to enter (starting at $10 USD for 100 entries). This is an international contest (please check the official rules for restrictions) and is currently open until Thursday July 14th. Visit here to enter.
The contest by Skydance that I previously posted is still open until Monday July 4th (US residents only).
Listen up, Trekkies! The premiere of the latest Star Trek flick will be shown at SDCC next month. Skydance is giving 2 winners and their guests tickets to this event, along with airfare, hotel, and spending money. Find more about it via the SDCC Unofficial Blog. Note that this contest is for the event during SDCC, not the convention itself, and is open only to US residents.
