Application for Press Credentials

SacAnime welcomes and appreciates members of the press and media industry who come to our events, and we look forward to building a wonderful relationship with you.

For organizations to receive press credentials to cover SacAnime, applicants must submit the Press Membership Application Form below.

Press Members of previous Sac Conventions must re-qualify for each event. You will receive an invitation to re-register for subsequent Sac Conventions events (including Sac-Con) provided you follow all the guidelines and the Press Member Code of Conduct at SacAnime Winter 2015.

If you are in good standing and attended a recent previous Sac Conventions event your organization DOES NOT need to submit a new application unless there has been a major change such as the name of the coordinator, name of the organization, main contact’s email address or similar.

SacAnime Interview Procedures

Interviews with official SacAnime Guests must be requested and arranged through Press Relations staff. Only Press Members may request interviews with Guests.

Interviews will be arranged as Guest availability allows; simply requesting an interview does not guarantee that one will be arranged. SacAnime staff works with Guests and their representatives to schedule the Guests’ time. This policy is necessary to avoid scheduling conflicts.

Press conference schedules will be available for small press, bloggers, and podcasters. All registered Press Members are welcome to attend. Recording equipment can be stored by Press Relations Staff upon request.

Ad Hoc Interviews

Ad hoc interviews with general members, dealers, and people other than Guest do not require SacAnime Press Relations approval.

Photography Guidelines:

Press Members must ask our convention attendees or Guests for their permission before taking their photograph per the Code of Conduct. Photographing someone after they have specifically requested not to be can result in membership cancellation and/or ejection from the convention.

Many of our attendees are minors. Please ask their parent, guardian, or chaperone for permission to take a minor’s photo and let them know where the photo will be located. Having extra business cards or photo cards to give out is a good idea.

It is not necessary to ask permission for candid videos of large crowds, but be mindful that filming of large panels and backstage access are allowed at the digression of the panelists and SacAnime staff. More detailed information is available on the Press Membership website.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Press Relations at
with the subject line “Press Question”.
