After discussing how we can best support our audience and include as many fellow fans as possible, the Gamemakers have decided to convert Victory Tour 2013 into a 2-day online convention. This change will give us the opportunity to explore the incredible discussions we had planned while keeping the cost affordable for everyone interested in attending. Registration for this online convention will be completely separate from any previous registration and the cost will be $10 per person to attend.
Over the next few weeks, the website will undergo some changes and we will begin to refund all registrations that have already been purchased. You will need to register again in order to attend the online convention. Closer to the event dates, you will be provided with instructions on how to attend the online convention and will be asked to pre-register for the events you wish to attend.
Sessions and panels will be very interactive and include video conferencing and question and answer sessions with special panelists, group discussions and lecture-style sessions. If you would like to lead a discussion, please apply to lead a session in our Programming section.
More information about registering for the online convention, leading a discussion, computer requirements, and special panelists will appear on our website in the upcoming weeks.
Thank you for your support.
President Snow declared this "The Year of the Mockingjay" at his annual New Year's Ball last evening.
As we reported here, since the stunning 74th Hunger Games victory of Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark, the entire nation has been clamoring to obtain anything featuring Everdeen's token mockingjay. President Snow has paid tribute to the country's adoration with this esteemed honor.
"Katniss is a great symbol of true courage. This is recognition of her courage, sacrifice, and the beginning of a long-term partnership with the Capitol, and most especially with me. We shall work together hand-in-hand for the ongoing prosperity of Panem!"
Have you been naughty or nice this year? President Snow knows! He's making his annual holiday gift list and checking it twice! He’s given us an exclusive look at the goodies he's picked out for your favorite Panem citizens:
For Katniss Everdeen:
"Katniss, our brave victor from District 12. She is such a little firecracker! Oh, how I look forward to the Victory Tour and her continuing cooperation with the Capitol’s peace initiatives. I will be giving Katniss an Antique Gold and Rhinestone Arrow Adjustable Cord Bracelet ($30). Every time she wears it, I hope she will remember her time in the arena, and the bond we share as President and Victor."
For Katniss Everdeen:
While Head Gamemaker, Plutarch Heavensbee, can’t reveal any details, he did speak to us by phone from the top-secret site of the under-construction Quarter Quell arena, and gave us a taste of what we can expect. “The Second Quell’s twist was clever - sending 48 tributes into the arena rather than 24. We started with that as a jumping-off point, and realized that we needed to really up the ante for this Games. With that dual victory by Katniss and Peeta still fresh in Panem’s minds, both the twist AND the arena of this Quell need to be unforgettable. I think what we have planned is EXACTLY what the people of Panem are looking for right now.”
