As a nonprofit organization, Comic-Con is able to provide a complimentary press badge(s) to press outlets that meet the published guidelines and provide information and examples of work to verify the legitimacy of the applying press outlet.

Press outlet verification will be valid for two consecutive years, unless earlier verification is requested by Comic-Con. Approved freelance press applicants will only be valid for one year.

A "Press Outlet Application" cannot be processed if your Outlet Key Contact does not provide verification materials. Simply listing press outlet information on the press application is not considered verification. Your Outlet Key Contact must submit qualifying verification materials to verify the legitimacy of the press outlet.

Please allow 5 - 8 weeks for processing and review. All press applications are processed in the order in which they are received. 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 2019 Press Outlet Application Submission Complete!” email to pressreg@comic-con.org
