PRESS APPLICATION

OVERVIEW

Big Easy Con welcomes press outlets from New Orleans and around the world, and we’re happy to provide approved members of the media with complimentary Press Passes. Before you apply, please understand…

YOUR PRESS PASS HAS RULES

Your Press Pass allows complimentary access during all public hours. Your Press Pass does NOT allow early access or special access. Your Press Pass does NOT allow you to cut lines. Your Press Pass does NOT guarantee you seats. Your Press Pass does NOT guarantee you autographs or free autographs from guests. Everyone attending Big Easy Con as Press MUST follow all Big Easy Con policies – including our Anti-Harassment rules.

PRESS PASSES ARE FOR JOURNALISTS ONLY

Press Registration is open to journalists making regular editorial contributions only. Editorial Press includes Writers, Reporters, Reviewers, Producers, Photographers, and Cameramen who are attending specifically to cover Big Easy Con. Non-Editorial personnel at media companies such as Marketing and Sales staff do not qualify for Press Passes and will not be approved.

LEGITIMATE OUTLETS ONLY

Press Passes will not be approved for outlets created with the sole intent of obtaining free admission. If you’ve got a website that hasn’t been updated in six months, a blog that exists only to post your convention reviews or a YouTube channel with two views, we’re sorry, but you’re not going to be approved. Big Easy Con checks every application that is submitted.

YOUR PRESS PASS IS YOURS

Press Passes are non-transferable. You may not loan or sell your Press Pass, and anyone conducting such behavior will have their Press Pass revoked and will be disqualified from Press Passes at future Big Easy Con events.

APPLY ONCE PER ORGANIZATION

Please only have one member of your media outlet apply for badges – they can apply for your full team. This person should be your organization’s main contact, and they will be responsible for picking up all of your badges onsite.

YOUR PRESS PASS DOESN’T GUARANTEE INTERVIEWS

If you’d like to speak with an invited guest, please arrange this through our Press Team prior to the show after your Press Badges have been approved. Interviews with talent cannot be guaranteed at the event. All our guests have approved schedules and on-site requests are very difficult to fulfill.
