What Is It?

YearbookCon is a three-day workshop designed to help yearbook advisors and staff prepare and gather momentum for their upcoming publication. Rather than lengthy videos, topics are broken into small, digestible sessions, which allow for easy note taking and re-watching. You’ll have access to the sessions for three months after the workshop so make sure to take advantage!

Where Do I Watch?

We’re excited to announce we’re hosting our workshop on Whova, a virtual conferencing platform. When you register, accounts will be created for you and your students, with the information sent via email within one week.

How Much Does It Cost?

YearbookCon costs $75 per school with unlimited advisor and student registrations.

You’ve heard the expression “don’t judge a book by its cover”, but the fact remains that the cover is what gives your audience their first impression, and guides their thoughts of the contents within. In Yearbook, the cover of your yearbook is where you receive your introduction to the theme, and sets the tone for everything that follows. Schedule a session with a cover designer, and give your yearbook its best cover yet!


No matter if you’re building your first yearbook, or are a 15-year veteran of the yearbook, scheduling some time with one of our fabulous presenters will give you a great boost to the yearbook. Make sure you’re ready to dive into yearbook the right way!
