Press Registration

Come back soon to apply for a 2020 Press badge and get ready to ask the hardest question: What makes you a hero, and not a vigilante?

Emerald City Comic Con welcomes members of the press from around the world and is happy to provide approved media members with a complimentary press badge. As with all ReedPOP events, ECCC is a “fans first” event and approval to receive a press badge is not guaranteed. We must maintain a high standard of excellence when we award press badges so please understand that: 

  • Your press badge allows access as long as space is permitting.
  • Your press badge does not allow early access, special access or guaranteed seating.
  • Your press badge does not allow you to cut lines.
  • Your press badge will not allow access into any events requiring an additional ticket.

Complimentary press badges are extended as a courtesy of ECCC. Each is issued individually and is non-transferable. You may not transfer or sell your press badge, and any individuals conducting such activity will be disqualified from press badges at future ReedPOP events. We highly recommend that you apply early as there is a chance that we will reach maximum capacity for press badges for ECCC 2019 prior to the deadline. Once all press badges are allocated, no more will be released.

ECCC Press Registration is open for journalists regularly making editorial contributions (Editorial Press) only. Editorial Press includes writers, reporters, reviewers, producers, photographers, cameramen, etc. who are attending specifically to write about ECCC and/or cover the event for newspapers, magazines, TV, blogs, podcasts, radio, etc. Non-Editorial personnel at media companies such as graphic designers, marketing, public relations and sales staff do not qualify for press badges and must register as a professional for ECCC. Non-Editorial applications for press badges will not be approved. Your approval for a press badge at previous editions of ECCC or other ReedPOP events does not guarantee you a press badge for ECCC 2019. You must complete the entire press badge application whether you have been approved previously or not.

Press badges are limited in nature and will be issued only to professionally employed adults. Badges will not be issued to children, family or guests. You must be 18 or older to qualify for a press badge. ECCC reserves the right to approve or deny any application and there is a limit to the number of press badges provided to each organization. Decisions are final and cannot be appealed.
