Otakon 2013, a set on Flickr.

I didn't have as many photos this year, mostly because I stayed in Press Ops most of the time. But there are some great staff shots here, and if you go to the main album and read the captions, you'll find out more about my experience this year. This is only about a third of the photos I've posted, which are all available in the Flickr album.

Via Flickr:Photos from the 20th annual Otakon, held August 9 to August 11, 2013.

So what did you do for press ops? Take pictures, blog about the convention?

I'm sorry I didn't stop by because I could not for the life of me figure out where press ops was. I finally got some staff member to tell me it was at the Hilton, but I couldn't find it there :/. So I just watched some anime.

Wow. We haven't been located in the Hilton for about three or four years. We were on the third floor of the Sheraton Inner Harbor hotel. I thought I mentioned that in the comment, but maybe I forgot.

I was the unofficial second-in-command for Press Relations. We're the people who serve as the liaisons between the registered press and the guests and staff. So we spend most of our time facilitating interviews in rooms that we control and answering questions for the press regarding photo policies and other subjects. It can be kind of frenzied, but lately we've got it down to a science so that it generally runs pretty smoothly.

I should mention we DO have staff members whose job is to document the con for posterity. They're called the Con Coverage staff and are a section of the Publications Department, whereas Press Relations is a section of Guest Relations. If I hadn't ended up in Press Relations, I probably would have joined Con Coverage.

This looks like a lot of fun. I miss going to conventions.

Which ones did you used to attend? We really only do Otakon and Philcon, and we are staff at Otakon and panelists at Philcon!

For fandom, just Star Trek conventions in the Rocky Mountain area, mostly. I would head to choral conventions too, but that is usually job related.

ETA: I did tag along for a super computing conference my husband went to. Forgot about that one.
