Press Application Form

Press registration is open for journalists regularly making editorial contributions. Editorial press includes, but is not limited to, writers, reporters, reviewers, producers, photographers, and cameramen, who are attending specifically to write about Animanga 2019 and/or cover the event for newspapers, magazines, TV, blogs, podcasts, radio, etc.

Complimentary Press badges are extended as a courtesy of Animanga.  Press interested in covering the Animanga 2019 should apply in advance. Qualifications for press include, but are not limited to:

  • Organization as a news/press outlet must have existed for at least two years.

  • Individual personal blogs and/or photo galleries (cosplay photographers etc) will not be considered except in special cases.

Press Badges do not allow early access into the building, special access or guaranteed seating, or the ability to cut lines. Animanga 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.

Responses to applications may take up to four (4) weeks. Submitting an application does not guarantee approval. Approval for prior years does not guarantee approval for the current year. Animanga reserves the right to approve or reject applications at its discretion. You will be notified about further registration requirements should we wish to proceed.
