Mexicanx Initiative

Worldcon Artist Guest of Honor John Picacio has started the Mexicanx Initiative to sponsor attending memberships to Worldcon 76 at the San Jose McEnery Convention Center in San Jose CA, to be held August 16-20, 2018. As previously reported, Picacio and John Scalzi announced that they would each sponsor two attending memberships. Other sponsors (including Christopher Brown, Ctein, Ty Franck, Mary Robinette Kowal, John & Christine O’Halloran, Chris Rose, and Joanna Volpe) have also joined the initiative with the goal of awarding memberships to 50 “Mexicanx artists, writers, filmmakers, culture shapers, and fans.”

Picacio is “the sole judge and jury.” Deadline for applications is February 2, 2018. For more information, including how to apply, see his blog.
