Tumblr Brings Ultimate Fan Experiences to San Diego Comic-Con
Tumblr will come to life at San Diego Comic-Con on July 24-26 with a series of events that bring together the Tumblr fandom community. The media network home to millions of fans around the world will honor and engage the super-fans of Comic-Con alongside MTV and BBC America.
Kicking off the week on Thursday, July 24th, the Tumblr community will have prime access to the “MTV Fan Fest” party at Petco Park, complete with surprise guests, food & drinks, games and giveaways. The celebration culminates into the first-ever “mtvU Fandom Awards,” which honors the fans whose tenacious excitement pushes movies, TV, books and comics from subculture to mainstream, worldwide success. As the mecca of online fandom, mtvU has tapped Tumblr for an exclusive award category – the “Best Fandom Forever” (BFF) award – which honors everlasting fandoms. Voting for the BFF award takes place exclusively on Tumblr and the nominees are: Sherlock, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Doctor Who, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Batman. The mtvU Fandom Awards will air on Sunday, July 27 at 8/7pm CT on MTV and mtvU.
On Friday, July 25th, BBC America and Tumblr will host the “Orphan Black #CloneClub Meetup,” to celebrate all things Orphan Black on Tumblr.

From 1:00pm-3:00pm at the South Paw Social Club, BBC America and Tumblr will offer first-come, first-served access to all things Orphan Black – including the very first Alison-inspired Cloneplay Theater Challenge, rad Cosima makeovers, a delicious Helena buffet, a clone yourself photo booth, and tons of Orphan Black swag courtesy of BBC America shop.
