Comic-Con Press Terms & Conditions

There will be NO onsite press registration. Applications and verification materials must be submitted by December 12, 2014 for consideration. Approved and not due press must register online each year they plan to attend. All press must submit verification materials every two years, unless requested earlier by Comic-Con International.

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. 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 6:00 pm on Wednesday, July 8, or during closed Exhibit Hall hours. There are no exceptions. Any pictures taken within the Exhibit Hall prior to 6:00 pm on Wednesday, July 8, and posted for public viewing will result in the forfeiture of your Comic-Con 2015 press badge.

Because of a variety of rules governing the San Diego Convention Center and Comic-Con International, 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 pr@comic-con.org 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 2015 press will be made available to studios, exhibitors, programming participants, etc., prior to the convention (Comic-Con 2015 Press List).

As always, the issuance of a press badge is at the sole discretion of Comic-Con International. Please be respectful to all attendees. A Comic-Con press badge is provided as a courtesy to cover the event. 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.
