Please review our NekoCon Press Relations Policy for 2016 found here. Approved members of the Press will not need to register for a NekoCon membership.
Press interested in covering NekoCon should apply in advance. The deadline is August 31, 2016. Please read the requirements for the application carefully. If your application is missing anything, it will be denied.
Qualifications for press may include (but are not limited to)
- Organization as a news/press outlet must have existed for at least two years.
- Be able to provide link to traffic stats page if requested.
- If you received a Press badge at a previous Event Support Solutions, Inc. event (i.e. FursonaCon, NekoCon, Ring of Fire Con) and there was no coverage of the event, you will automatically be denied.
Each person that will be attending must fill out the form, even if someone from the same organization has already done so. Submitting a request for Press badge does not guarantee that you will receive Press access. The total number of Press badges is limited. It is possible that not every name submitted for your organization will receive Press access.
After you complete your application, your editor may receive an email. Your Editor/Supervisor must respond to confirm that you are applying to represent the organization. Once the application has been reviewed, editor confirmation received, and application is accepted, you will be sent a confirmation email.
Picking up Your Press Badge
You will receive instructions on where to pick up your Press badge in your confirmation email. Press badge pickup will begin on Thursday evening, at the same time member pre-registration opens. Please bring your government-issued ID. You must carry your Press badge at all times. Without your Press badge you will not have access to the convention.
After the conclusion of the event, we will request a copy of your coverage for our records and to make future assessments on press access.
Failure to comply with the Press Policies, as well as NekoCon policies, will result in revocation of your Press badge.
Thank you for your interest, and we hope to see you at NekoCon this year.
