Eagle-Con 2021 will be held virtually on Thursday, March 11, Friday, March 12, and Saturday, March 13.
Our special guest on Thursday is writer Nnedi Okorafor (the Binti trilogy, Black Panther: Long Live the King), who will be awarded the Octavia Butler Memorial Award.
On Friday, legendary actor and activist George Takei (Star Trek, They Called Us Enemy) will be given the Prism Award for outstanding contributions to diversity in science fiction across media.
Our special guest Saturday will be production designer Wynn Thomas (Mars Attacks, Hidden Figures) who will be presented the Imaginator Award for wondrous achievement in visual conceptualization. Each of this year’s awardees have long been barrier breakers for other writers and artists, building impressively varied careers that have impacted millions in a manner that is at the heart of Eagle-Con’s mission.
Eagle-Con's mission is to educate Cal State LA students and members of the Greater Los Angeles community about the history, impact, and continued necessity of the contributions of women, BIPOC, the LGBTQIA-identified, the differently-abled, and the variously-aged to the science fiction and fantasy genres. Our 2021 event explores representations of diversity within these genres, and furthers our efforts to provide opportunities for students to learn about these genres from artists, writers, and professionals working in southern California’s entertainment industries, network with these professionals, and imagine how they might one day join their ranks.
