HOW TO APPLY AS PRESS
New outlets and returning outlets (Verification DUE - Reapply) must submit the Press Outlet Application to be considered for press badges to our conventions.
To begin, please have the Outlet Key Contact* of your outlet complete this application process.
*Outlet Key Contact (OKC) is the primary person responsible for facilitating communication between the press outlet and WonderCon/Comic-Con. There can only be one OKC per press outlet. However, an OKC may be the OKC for multiple outlets.
In order to submit the Press Outlet Application, the Outlet Key Contact must have a Comic-Con Member ID account. To create a Member ID, please click here.
To access the Press Outlet Application visit:
The Press Outlet Application includes consideration for both WonderCon and Comic-Con 2023. There will only be ONE application for both conventions. Press outlet verification approval is valid for two consecutive years, under WonderCon’s discretion.
Once the application has been reviewed, the Outlet Key Contact will receive an email and the verification status of the outlet will be updated accordingly in their Member ID account.
Are you freelancing? Freelance press members that would like to apply must submit a Press Outlet Application as their own Outlet Key Contact. The assignment letter must be from the press outlet assigning you. Freelance press members’ verification will only be valid for the year approved.
Press Outlet Applications submitted after Friday, January 27, 2023 will be considered for on-site registration only. Approval and on-site registration are not guaranteed. For additional information, please review our Press FAQ.
