Press FAQ

Registration for the Comic-Con@Home 2021 Press List is now open! All Comic-Con@Home Press List Registration request forms must be submitted by Wednesday, July 7, 2021.

We encourage you to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Toucan – the official blog of Comic-Con and WonderCon Anaheim – for important updates and information.

PLEASE NOTE: As a courtesy, we have extended the verification status of all NOT DUE press outlets for an additional year due to the cancellation of Comic-Con 2020. If you were eligible to register as an approved press outlet for Comic-Con 2020, you will be eligible to register for the Comic-Con@Home 2021 Press List.

As we continue to monitor the latest information from healthcare officials regarding COVID-19, we have determined the interest of public safety will prevent this summer’s Comic-Con from moving forward as an in-person convention.

Our commitment to the community of fans who enjoy Comic-Con and the celebration of comics and related popular art remains an important part of who we are. It is because of that dedication that we are happy to announce that Comic-Con will again be held as the virtual Comic-Con@Home.

We are currently in the process of creating a great online programming schedule, an expansive array of exhibitors, interactive gaming, and many other events that make Comic-Con a fan-favorite convention.

If your press outlet has a verification status of “NOT DUE”, you are eligible to be added to the official Comic-Con@Home 2021 Press List. Your Outlet Key Contact must submit a "Comic-Con@Home 2021 Press List Registration" request form by July 7, 2021 to participate.

Your outlet’s verification status and request form are located on the “Press” tab of your Outlet Key Contact’s Member ID account.

The official Comic-Con@Home 2021 Press List will be made available to all of our participating studios, exhibitors, and program participants prior to the event. It will contain the names, outlets, titles, email addresses, and countries of “attending” press members.

The Outlet Key Contact is the primary person responsible for facilitating all communication between the press outlet and Comic-Con, including submitting the "Comic-Con@Home 2021 Press List Registration" request form. There can only be one Outlet Key Contact per press outlet. However, an Outlet Key Contact may be the Outlet Key Contact for multiple press outlets.

To update or change the Outlet Key Contact, please email pressreg@comic-con.org for assistance. The new Outlet Key Contact must have their own valid and confirmed Comic-Con Member ID.

If your outlet was approved to attend Comic-Con 2020, you may now register for the official Comic-Con@Home 2021 Press List! An email was sent to all eligible Outlet Key Contacts with a link to the "Comic-Con@Home Press List Registration" request form and a required access code.

The link to the "Comic-Con@Home 2021 Press List Registration" request form can also be found on the “Press” tab of the Outlet Key Contact’s Member ID account.

Only the Outlet Key Contact may submit a "Comic-Con@Home 2021 Press List Registration" request form on behalf of outlet members. All requests must be submitted by July 7, 2021, for consideration.

We’re sorry, but we are unable to accept "Comic-Con@Home 2021 Press List Registration" request forms after July 7, 2021.

You must obtain written permission from Comic-Con and any other participants being recorded, if approved.
