WonderCon Anaheim Press Terms & Conditions
A WonderCon Anaheim press badge is good for entry to all of the events held at WonderCon Anaheim (space permitting). The WonderCon Anaheim 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 WonderCon Anaheim press badge is non-transferable. You may not transfer or sell your WonderCon press badge. Unfortunately, a press badge does not allow for plus ones, guests, or child badges. A press badge has no monetary value and you are not entitled to a refund of any amount for your complimentary press badge. Duplicate badges of any type are not allowed.
Press will not be allowed into the Exhibit Hall prior to 12:00 pm on Friday, April 18, or during closed Exhibit Hall hours. There are no exceptions. Any pictures posted of, or within, the Exhibit Hall prior to 12:00 pm on Friday, April 18, will result in the forfeiture of your WonderCon Anaheim 2014 press badge.
Because of a variety of rules governing the Anaheim Convention Center and WonderCon Anaheim, wheeled carts or handcarts 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 firstname.lastname@example.org to request the appropriate consents along with detailed information regarding your interest in recording at WonderCon Anaheim.
PLEASE NOTE: Names, outlets, and email addresses of confirmed WonderCon Anaheim 2014 press will be made available to studios, exhibitors, programming participants, etc., prior to the convention (WonderCon Anaheim 2014 Press List).
As always, the issuance of a press badge is at the sole discretion of Comic-Con International. Please be respectful of all our attendees. A WonderCon Anaheim press badge is provided as a courtesy to cover the event. WonderCon Anaheim does not tolerate coverage that includes stunt type events, ambush interviewing or any sort of action that could make any of our attendees feel unsafe or uncomfortable.
