Press Terms and Conditions

There will be NO press requests after the July 3, 2020 deadline. Press members of approved press outlets must register online each year they plan to attend. Press outlet verification approval is valid for two consecutive years (for example, approved press outlets for our upcoming convention will be valid for 2020 and 2021), unless earlier verification is requested by Comic-Con. Freelance press members’ verification will only be valid for the year approved. As a courtesy to all press outlets, we have extended the verification status of all NOT DUE press outlets for an additional year. If you were eligible to register as press for Comic-Con 2020, you will be eligible to register for Comic-Con 2021.

Comic-Con@Home press is for placement on the official Comic-Con@Home Press List.

Posting or airing more than 5 minutes of a panel without prior consent from Comic-Con is not permitted. Live streaming is also not permitted. Registered press members that would like 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 and any other participants being recorded. To request the appropriate consents, please email pr@comic-con.org with detailed information regarding the interest to record at Comic-Con@Home.

Names, outlets, titles, email addresses, and countries of press members will be made available to participating studios, exhibitors, programming participants, etc., prior to the convention (Comic-Con Press List).

As always, the issuance of a press registration is at the sole discretion of Comic-Con. Please be respectful to all attendees. A Comic-Con@Home press registration is provided as a courtesy to cover and be listed as members of the press to our convention. Comic-Con 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. All registered members of the press must comply with  Comic-Con's Code of Conduct and all other convention policies.
