For those hoping to experience San Diego Comic-Con as a volunteer, we have some bad news for you: All spots are taken.
Following last month’s Priority Volunteer Registration (for those who had volunteered in previous years or who were pre-approved), today marked the Volunteer Registration for first timers who had signed up on the Interest List.
Unlike with Priority Volunteer Registration, where attendees are virtually guaranteed a spot, the Interest List slots are filled on a first-come, first-served basis and go very quickly. This year was no exception, with Twitter timestamps indicating that it only took about 17 minutes – much more than last year’s three minutes, but probably not as long as many would like.

Comic-Con International will not be accepting any more volunteers for 2015.
CCI depends on the thousands of volunteers each year to assist with running the event. It has become a popular way for folks to get a free badge for the convention while providing a service to CCI and their fellow attendees, as well as some nice swag that’s only available to volunteers. Sadly, those of you who weren’t able to get into the program will have to wait until next year.
Were you able to get into the volunteer program for 2015? Or will you have to wait until next year? Let us know in the comments.
