Our annual Meet & Greet Lottery gives everyone an equal chance of meeting their favorite creator. It is the ONLY way to have access to the Meet & Greet Hall, which is where meet & greets with Featured Creators take place. If you want to meet Featured Creators, you MUST enter the lottery.

To participate in the Meet & Greet Lottery, you must purchase a Community or Industry ticket. Creator Track attendees and single-day Community attendees do not have access to the Meet & Greet Lottery or Hall. Chaperone tickets will only have access to the Meet & Greet Hall when they are accompanying an attendee who has received a meet & greet session.

The 2019 VidCon Meet & Greet Lottery has not opened yet.

  • Meet & Greet Lottery will be open from THURSDAY, May 23 – THURSDAY, June 6, 2019
  • Meet & Greet Lottery results will be made available on THURSDAY, June 13, 2019.


How to Enter

  • Log into the Meet & Greet Lottery site (we’ll send you a link when it opens!) using your email address and Ticket Number or Order Number. These can be found in the confirmation email you received when you purchased your ticket (the Ticket Number will start with TK and the Order Number will start with RD). If you purchased multiple tickets, be sure to enter the lottery with each one.
  • Rank your top Featured Creator picks for the lottery.
  • 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 once the deadline passes.
  • When the lottery closes, we’ll use a computerized system to determine who gets assigned to which meet & greets, and lottery results will be available one week later. When you receive an email telling you the results are in, you’ll be able to log back into the lottery site to see which meet & greets you can attend!


We use our own professional photography service. You’ll be able to download, save, and share the images we’ve captured shortly after your session. We’ll let you know which sessions use photographers when we send your lottery results.

Buddy System

Want to join the lottery with a friend? Good news: the Buddy System is back!

Our Buddy System allows you and one other registered attendee to enter the lottery together.

To register with your buddy, simply click, “Join another person to this entry” under “Buddy System” and enter the email and Ticket Number of the person with whom you want to join. After you join entries, both buddies are able to log in and modify the lottery picks. Either buddy may disconnect the join at any time by clicking “Break join.”

Please Note: The Buddy System does not increase your chances of getting any particular Featured Creator in the lottery — it’s just a way to attend meet & greets with a friend!

Chaperone Policy

If you are a chaperone (18 years or older) with a Chaperone or Community Track ticket, you can accompany the child you’re chaperoning to their meet & greets in the Meet & Greet Hall.

The Chaperone ticket does not allow you to participate in the Meet & Greet Lottery, so if you wish to participate in the lottery, meet the creator, and take a photograph with them, you must purchase a Community or Industry Track ticket.

When you get to VidCon

When you arrive at registration to get your VidCon badge, you will also receive your meet & greet credentials. We’ll have more details on this when we get closer to the event.

Trading of meet & greets is NOT permitted.
