VidUKon 2024 is just four months away! Here are the essential things to know so far about this year's convention: First of all, it takes place on 27-30 June, both in Cardiff and online. For the first time ever, we are trying out programming on the Thursday evening! This will be online-only and will consist of an hour or two of vidshows, to whet everyone's appetites. Friday programming will begin - online and in person - in the afternoon as usual. If you’d like to attend, you can learn more about registration here. The deadline to register for in-person attendance is May 4. If you’re joining us in person you will probably also want to know about hotel room bookings and finding a roommate! The deadline to book a hotel room in the VidUKon block is May 31. Up to four people can share a room. Of course, a con needs programming! If you’d like to suggest a vidshow, panel or any other sort of content, you can find more information here - the deadline for that is coming up fast on February 23. The same link also contains info about submitting a Premiere (deadline May 6) or a Vidder’s Choice (deadline April 1). This year's themed submissions show will be open to premiering vids only, and the theme will be Creation/Decay. The deadline for this show will also be May 6. With more updates to come, make sure to keep an eye on our social media - you'll always find the latest updates here on Dreamwidth, plus you can keep tabs on us via Tumblr and Bluesky. Those crucial dates in chronological order: February 23 - deadline for programming suggestions April 1 - deadline to submit to Vidder’s Choice May 4 - deadline to register for in-person attendance May 6 - deadline to submit to Premieres and the themed submissions show May 31 - deadline to book a hotel room in the VidUKon block June 28-30 - VidUKon!!! We hope to see you at this year’s con!
An important announcement, folks!
That's a wrap on VidUKon 2023! Well, it's been a wrap for a few days already, but today the last of concom finally made it home after a few days of recovery in the English countryside. (There was a hot tub. It was great.)
Just like in previous years, we’ll be using a dedicated Discord server as a central social space for this year’s con. This will be the main social hub for folks attending the virtual con, and will also be accessible for folks attending in person.
May 1 - Vidder’s Choice submissions

VidUKon 2023 is getting closer, and we have lots of news to share!
For folks attending this year’s convention in person, there are rooms set aside in the con hotel, the Future Inn Cardiff Bay. These are available at a special convention rate on a first-come, first-served basis. Breakfast is included in the rate.
Registration is now open for VidUKon 2023! Join us on 9-11 June for vidshows, panels, workshops and socialising!
The dates for the 2023 con are set! Start and end times are not set in stone yet, and registration isn't open yet, either -- but we know we'll be holding the con in our usual spot, the Cardiff Bay Future Inn, on June 9th - 11th 2023. Like the 2022 con, we're planning to run it as a hybrid con and offer Conline participation as well. There will be a room booking code for con rates which will be announced closer to the date. Hope to see you there, either in person or virtually!
