Media Terms and Guidelines
El Paso Comic Con welcomes members of the Press and is happy to provide approved media members with a complimentary EPCON Press Badge. EPCON Press Registration is open for journalists regularly making editorial contributions (Editorial Press) only. Editorial Press includes Writers, Reporters, Reviewers, Producers, Photographers, Cameramen, etc. who are attending specifically to write about EPCON and/or cover the event for newspapers, magazines, TV, blogs, podcasts, radio, etc. EPCON is a “Fans First” event and approval to receive a Press Badge is not guaranteed. We must maintain a high standard of excellence when we award Press Badges so please understand that:
- Your Press Badge allows access as long as space is permitting
- Your Press Badge does not allow early access, special access, or guaranteed seating
- Your Press Badge does not allow you to cut lines
- Your Press Badge will not allow access into any events requiring an additional ticket
All Press Registrations are subject to approval. You will be notified if you have been approved for a Press Badge within 21 days of when you submitted your registration. If your registration is NOT approved you will also be notified. If you have been approved additional information regarding the Press Lounge and Badge distribution will be provided in your confirmation email and receipt.
Complimentary Press Badges are extended as a courtesy of EPCON. Each is issued individually. If you are applying with a team, each person on your team needs to apply and be approved separately. Every individual applying for a EPCON Press Badge may only apply once. Please note: EPCON Press Badges are non-transferable and non-resellable. Any individuals caught transferring or selling their Press Badge will be disqualified from Press Badges at future EPCON events.
