Hola Everybody!

And another year comes and already counting the days for it, i have a very silly question and i hope you can help me to understand. What do you need in order to be able to apply for the press badge? what kind of benefits does it give you? I am very interested in writing, video and photography but i don't own a business or site but i am very interested on it and hopefully one day i can have it, since 2013 when i went to my first NYCC i loved it and share all my experiences thru social media but now sort of wondering how to get the press badge and what do i need in order to apply for it.

You can view the press credential FAQs before you apply. They are here: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

Press badge does not really give you anything extra outside of the badge itself. The issue is like without a site with followers you are likely going to be denied, I don't say this to be harsh just to temper your expectations. They do ask statistics about your site in the questions so if you were to say 'I post on social media' there is not a lot of wiggle room unless of course you have a lot of followers.

Unfortunately looking now the site is a bit bare in terms of guidelines but really you have to ask if you make regular contributions or just doing it for the badge

^^ To add to that, with the press application this year, you're asked for site statistics (monthly hit count, etc.), posting frequency, and to provide links to work, at least one of which has to have been posted within the last 60 days.

Congrats to those who received confirmation.

I am waiting on mine personally but I can confirm the FoCC blog has been confirmed for NYCC Press.

The other person from our outlet was denied "due to space", so that is a thing that is happening. We're still not sure if it's actually because of space or because she didn't do any press rooms last year.

I was approved

You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login I don't think you have to do press rooms to be approved. I just figure because so many people are applying now they have to watch how many people from an outlet can get aproved

True, but there are only two of us. I can understand there being a limit, but I doubt it's one per outlet.
