We might have! There were three of us from Nerdophiles running around last year. I know for sure I met [member=1060]DRWHO42[/member] at NYCC at the Falling Water press room. I need to make more of an effort to network when I go to cons.

Actually, I haven't been putting up real names: only the FoCC usernames. That's because if someone sees the master list and wants to contact another press person, they will likely do it through the FoCC board, and use the PM system, which is based on the FoCC username.

While talking to [member=10]ukdeejay[/member] (englishmaninSD) and [member=5419]Aaron[/member](hallhdotcom) a thought occurred to me

i am toying with opening up a private area on this forum for convention & pop culture bloggers -
Would my fellow bloggers like a place where we could privately discuss the challenges we face with technology(Gimbles, voice recording, vid recording, and my personal fav. Live boardcasting from conventions), keeping our blogs updated, marketing, advertising etc all?

an off shoot of this idea instead is to make a new public area - to discuss tech, camping gear etc all

Due to press notices starting to go out I've pushed the opening of the press & bloggers area up.
please check into the chat thread & let me know you can see the area.

eta: the unboxing vid is not ready so but due to the notices starting to roll out- I'll add it in a few days.

So who out there is a press attendee? I'd quit my main gig so didn't get my badge renewed this year. Anyone ever had success getting a badge as a freelancer? Seems like they've really cracked down unless you're with an outlet who provides an assignment letter.

As of late, I have noticed it being harder for freelancers to get in. This shifted over a few years ago and it got to the point where I had to create my own outlet to even have a chance. Not only SDCC but many others too. I have a feeling that it comes down to humans abusing the system.

Post by: jamiesugah on January 27, 2020, 12:40:55 PM
I've honestly never tried as a freelancer but I think it's a general trend at conventions that they're getting more strict with their requirements. Unless you've got massive social media reach, you probably won't get in as press unless you're with an outlet.

Emails have gone out that press registration is open for Wonder Con and Comic Con :

Great news! Both WonderCon Anaheim and Comic-Con 2020 press badge registration are now open! Follow the instructions below to register for each convention and be sure to pay special attention to the advance shipping deadlines.

For WonderCon Anaheim 2020, all badge requests must be submitted by February 21, 2020 to qualify for advance shipping. The WonderCon Anaheim 2020 press registration system will close on Friday, March 6, 2020. You must submit your requests prior to this deadline.

For Comic-Con 2020, all badge requests must be submitted by May 8, 2020 to qualify for advance shipping. The Comic-Con 2020 press registration system will close on Friday, July 3, 2020. You must submit your requests prior to this deadline.

To submit registration requests on behalf of your press outlet, log in to your Comic-Con Member ID account and select the “Press” tab. Click the blue “Log In to Outlet Portal” button. Select either “WonderCon Anaheim Registration” or “Comic-Con Registration” to begin the request process.

IMPORTANT: Each individual you register will be sent an email with instructions on how to complete their registration request. Press badge registration is INCOMPLETE until they agree to the Press Terms and Conditions for each convention they are registered for.

Once press registration closes for each convention, any changes or additions (if eligible) must be done onsite at the press desk. Please make sure to submit all changes prior to the convention deadlines above, or they will not be included on the official press list.

We are unable to ship badges to an international address. If you have an international address or if you register after the advance shipping deadline, your badge will be available for onsite pick up only.

For more information and frequently asked questions regarding Comic-Con press registration, please click here. For the WonderCon Anaheim Press FAQ, click here. 

We look forward to seeing you in 2020!

Sincerely,

Karen Mayugba

I just really need them to roll my press badge over and not count this as one of the two years of having it.

There's no indication they'll take a year, but I'm paranoid and there's also no indication they WON'T...

Also hoping they don’t make outlets reverify for next year but I have a feeling we won’t find out until the fall.

SDCC Unofficial Blog is reporting that outlets verified for this year will not have to reverify next year. As a member of a smaller outlet, I'm relieved.

I'm reading that as if you did not have to apply for Press in 2020, you are good for 2021, but if you DID have to apply in 2020, you'll have to reapply for 2021? Is that how other people are reading it or am I overthinking it?

My outlet was approved for 2020 and traditionally that would carry us through 2022, but it sounds like we'll have to reapply for 2021 instead?
Title: Re: FoCC Press Attendees
Post by: WonderTwin93 on April 24, 2020, 01:17:26 PM
This was a direct email response from CCI to the blog, so maybe they only asked about not due outlets? I would wait to see what the CCI official email sent out to all key contacts says before worrying. Hopefully, they offer more clarification.

Personally I think it would be weird to not extend for ALL outlets regardless of whether they just reverified or were not due.

But Pros who were set to have to reverify for 2021 will still need to verify I think.  So press outlets due to reverify would likely still have to reverify.

Also, just spitballing, it seems feasible there won't be enough badges returned/refunded to necessitate a badge-selling that extra refunded badges they receive would go to press & pro badges maybe (assuming there are too few to have a sale, and too many to auction off for charity/CCI Museum)

No. Pros due to verify in 2021 are extended to 2022. The email was clear.

I am not sure what the comparative benefits of being press will be this time. I guess there may be interviews that can be done online, maybe some press only events?
Title: Re: FoCC Press Attendees

Well to confirm what I was wondering earlier, I believe the usual press emails will come in this year. So the usual preview materials, interview opportunities, maybe press only online events.
Title: Re: FoCC Press Attendees

Im definitely starting to get press releases from registering for at home press but time will tell if there any interview opportunities (at least for smaller outlets like mine).

Looking ahead to 2022; I logged into my member ID (outlet key contact) and am now seeing "verification due." I was not due in 2020 and thought this was being rolled forward. Anyone else facing this?
Title: Re: FoCC Press Attendees
Post by: WonderTwin93 on September 11, 2021, 09:01:43 AM
After seeing your post I just checked mine - also showing verification due though if they were rolling it over again we should not be due. This is concerning.

Checked as recently as of Sunday May 1st and there was nothing yet but it's under another person's name in our organization so I can't check it daily.

I am the Key Contact (listed as Not Due too) for our outlet and it was updated this morning to state that badge allotments will be available for a later date.  No further news beyond that. WonderCon did not open up for Press until March 8th, so they might be cutting it closer for SDCC too. Gods, I hope not, but usually the timelines are similar.

Same here. To find the info I had to click on the "Press" tab in my account dashboard. That opens up to the "My Allotment" page. I was getting worried since nothing shows up on the main page of account dashboard. Hopefully soon they will post that we are able to get our badges.

Long time no talk!

Where is everyone seeing the "not due"? I'm not seeing due or not due anywhere.

Only REALLY odd thing I see is when I click "edit when nerds attack" it pops up with the following:

OUTLET VERIFICATION STATUS:

Approved: Wondercon & Comic-Con [With a check box I can click myself]
Approved: Wondercon Only [With a check box I can click myself]
Verifcation due- reapply [a box, I cant do anything with]
2022 Application Denied [a box, I cant do anything with]

Well...what does this all mean? Am I approved, do I need to reapply? Or am I denied when I haven't had a chance to reapply? Again this is all in an 'edit' area I can mess with myself. I got my wondercon badge just fine.

I genuinely wish this wasn't so anxiety enducing. This is probably my last go as press due to being too busy in my day to day life.

Looks like CCI might be getting ready to do the press registrations. When I looked at my account today I could see the info with my Outlet and how there is a badge allocated. (shows how 0/1 are used). I am the outlet key contact so I might be able to see info not available on other press members dashboard. Here is the wording at the top:  "Comic-Con 2022 Press Badge Registration is opening soon!

You'll be able to find your available Comic-Con 2022 press badge allotment for your outlet(s) below at that time.

Comic-Con 2022 badge registration for Program, Studio, and Exhibitor Key Contacts is not yet open. Please check back later."

I have noticed an uptick in press emails lately. None specific yet for SDCC but hopefully CCI is releasing the badge registration soon. The new member ID system won't send my email any emails (they suggest I use a different one). I will rely on the fellow press people to give a holler when press reg opens. Good luck to all!

So sorry! Hope that CCI can fix the issue soon. It seems to take a few days for them to reply lately. Had a press friend who had an issue with their badge allotment (both the badges were issued in error to one person not the 2 who do the press for them)

Ugh. Maybe the lesson is to screenshot whenever you see something in your account, in case it disappears later. Sucks that we have to take that step, though. Hope you are able to get your badges back, @bettiebloodshed (https://www.friendsofcc.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=1480) !

I was able to go in and register for my press badge now. It was slightly disconcerting that the system kept using the July 21 date as the listed start date (July 21 - July 24) while going through that registration process, instead of July 20 (preview night). And even the barcode email I received is not as obvious as past years that it is a badge that includes preview night. However, the fine text of the email does confirm that press members may attend preview night, with an identical paragraph that was present in 2019, so I am assuming all will be fine.
