Comic-Con Press Terms & Conditions
There will be NO onsite registration. The Comic-Con 2013 Press Application Period is now closed and we will no longer be able to consider any press applications at this time. Verified press must register online each year they plan to attend, and provide verification materials every two years.
A Comic-Con press badge is good for entry to all of the events held at Comic-Con (space permitting). The Comic-Con press badge, however, does not allow for early entry into the Exhibit Hall, programming rooms, events, or guaranteed seating. Please keep in mind that press registration is a courtesy and your Comic-Con press badge is non-transferable. You may not transfer or sell your Comic-Con press badge. Unfortunately, a press badge does not allow for plus ones, guests, or child badges.
Press will not be allowed into the Exhibit Hall prior to 3:00 pm on Wednesday July 17, or during closed Exhibit Hall hours. There are no exceptions. Any pictures posted of, or within, the Exhibit Hall prior to 3:00 pm on Wednesday July 17, will result in the forfeiture of your Comic-Con 2013 press badge.
Because of a variety of rules governing the San Diego Convention Center and Comic-Con International, wheeled carts or hand carts are not allowed in the convention center. Additionally, camera crews, while free to roam the center, cannot set up equipment in a fixed manner (i.e. lights, chairs, etc.).
Members of the press that want to videotape, film, and/or record any matter that will be used for commercial purposes (non-news) must first obtain written permission from Comic-Con International as well as permission of the panel participants. Please email email@example.com to request the appropriate consents along with detailed information regarding your interest in recording at Comic-Con International.
PLEASE NOTE: Names, outlets, and email addresses of confirmed Comic-Con 2013 press will be made available to studios, exhibitors, programming participants, etc. prior to the convention (Comic-Con 2013 Press List).
As always, the issuance of a press badge is at the sole discretion of Comic-Con International.
