Whether you've attended BronyCon in the past as working press or this is your first time, all working press must register. Your application must be emailed by June 17th, 2017. Applications sent after this date will not be considered. There will be NO onsite press registration.
Once you have submitted your application, please allow one to two weeks for processing and review. You will be notified via email if you are approved or declined. If you do not receive a response from BronyCon within four weeks, please contact [email protected] with your outlet name and date your application was submitted.
Each year BronyCon welcomes members of the press from all over the world. Although requirements vary, BronyCon will consider applications from press in the comic book, book publishing, animation, film, television, gaming, and other pop culture related industries. All press applicants must be currently employed or on assignment by the outlet they are representing. There is a limit of three (3) badges per outlet/company. Each person must apply individually via our application in order to receive a press badge.
In general, press applicants fall into one of four categories: print, online, broadcast, and podcast / blog. Documentary crews may qualify for complimentary press badges.
As always, the issuance of a press badge is at the sole discretion of BronyCon. Please be respectful of all our attendees. A BronyCon press badge is provided as a courtesy to cover the event. BronyCon 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. Before applying for a BronyCon press badge please carefully review the following:
A BronyCon press badge is good for entry to all the events held at BronyCon. The BronyCon press badge, however, does not allow for early entry into Blank Canvas’s Marketplace, Crusaders’ Clubhouse, Cosplay Lounge and exclusive paid workshops. Please keep in mind that press registration is a courtesy and BronyCon press badge is non-transferable. You may not transfer or sell your BronyCon 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.
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 BronyCon as well as permission of the panel participants. Posting a panel in its entirety is not permitted at BronyCon. Please email [email protected] to request the appropriate consents along with detailed information regarding your interest in recording at BronyCon.
