Creators want to meet and talk to the people who love their content, and the people who love their content want to meet them.
For the last few years, we have held an online Meet & Greet lottery to give everyone an equal chance of meeting their favorite creator. This ensures that no one waits in line needlessly only to be disappointed when a session is full, and it reduces the length of time people are waiting in Meet & Greet hall lines in general.
The Meet & Greet Lottery is open to Community and Industry attendees only.
Creator Track attendees do not have access to the Meet & Greet Hall.
The VidCon Australia Meet & Greet Lottery is now open! It will close on Tuesday, 8 August at 11:59 pm (AEST).
If you want to meet Featured Creators, you MUST have entered the Meet & Greet Lottery by 8 August. This is not a first-come, first-served lottery — you can take your time submitting your choices, but you MUST have done so before 11:59 PM on 8 August.
Here’s how it works:
- The Lottery will open on 25 July at 12:00 AM (AEST).
- If you’re already registered for VidCon Australia, on 25 July, you will receive a link at the email address you used to register to rank your top choices for Meet & Greet tickets.
- Log in to the Lottery with your email address and registration ticket or order number (You can find this in the confirmation email you received when you purchased your registration — the ticket number will start with TK). If you purchased multiple tickets, be sure to enter the Lottery with each one! If you only enter the Lottery with one ticket number, that ticket will be the only one to receive meet & greets.
- Rank your top Featured Creator picks for the Lottery. The order you put people in matters, so put the person you want to see the most in spot #1. You must rank 10 creators — if you don’t rank and save 10 creators, your entry will not be saved correctly!
- Be sure to save your lottery picks! You may log back into the Lottery at any time and modify your choices, but your choices will be locked down and FINALIZED on 8 August 11:59 PM (AEST).
- That’s it! When the Lottery closes on 8 August, we will run the computerized system that will determine who gets into which Meet & Greets, based on everyone’s preferences.
- You must be registered before 8 August in order to participate in the lottery. Results will be announced a week later.
- When you check in on-site to pick up your badge, you will receive wristbands that grant you access for each of your Meet & Greet sessions.

Participation in the Meet & Greet Lottery does not guarantee you access to a certain number of Meet & Greets.
The Buddy System is in effect! This is an awesome way for you to join the Meet & Greet Lottery with a friend. When the Lottery opens, we will give you instructions on how to participate in the Lottery with a Buddy.
If you are an adult (18+) who would like to join the child you are attending with in the Meet & Greet Hall, you are more than welcome accompany them without having a wristband yourself — however, you still must have a badge to access this space. If you would like to be in the photograph that is taken, you will also need to have a wristband for that Meet & Greet session in addition to your VidCon badge.
