Press

The Comic-Con 2020 press application period is closed. All applications must have been submitted by November 1, 2019.

We have exciting news! If you missed the deadline, we invite you to join us for WonderCon Anaheim 2020! The press application period has been extended. Please click here for more information. 

 

To check your outlet's current verification status, log in to the Outlet Key Contact’s Comic-Con Member ID account, and select the “Press” tab. If your press outlet status is “Verification NOT DUE – Approved”, no action is required at this time. You will be notified when press badge registration opens at a later date. 

If your outlet status is "Verification DUE- Reapply", you must have submitted a press application by Friday, November 1, 2019 to be considered as press for Comic-Con 2020.

Outlet Status Example

 

If you have already submitted an application for Comic-Con 2020, you can check your application status by logging into the Outlet Key Contact’s Comic-Con Member ID account, and selecting the “Press” tab. The Outlet Key Contact will be notified via email when the press outlet is approved or declined. If the Outlet Key Contact does not receive a response from Comic-Con within 5-8 weeks, please forward the “Comic-Con and WonderCon Anaheim 2020 Press Outlet Application Submission Complete!” email to pressreg@comic-con.org.

What happens next?

If your outlet is approved, an allocation of complimentary press badges will be assigned. The Outlet Key Contact will be notified via email when press badge registration opens and will be responsible for submitting registration requests for each individual member of the press outlet. IMPORTANT: Individual outlet members must have their own valid and confirmed Comic-Con Member ID for the Outlet Key Contact to submit a registration request on their behalf.
