Press Accreditation

Hal-Con is happy to provide qualified members of the media with a free press pass giving them access to the convention. There are a very limited number of passes available. Applications will open July 12th and are subject to approval. Receipt of a pass is not guaranteed.

Please note: A press pass allows you access as long as space is available. It does not allow early access or special access to the convention, nor does it allow you to cut lines. It does not allow for reserved seating or access to the Stargazer Soiree. Any interviews with guests must be approved prior to Hal-Con, and guest access is not guaranteed. Press passes are issued to the individual member of the media and are non-transferable. Press passes are issued per day and will only be issued for multiple days in rare circumstances (i.e. media from out of area who are travelling to cover the convention). Approval for a press pass in previous years does not guarantee approval this year.

If your application is submitted between July 12th and August 12th, you will be notified regarding your acceptance by August 16th.  If your application is submitted between August 13th and September 13th, you will be notified regarding your acceptance by September 17th.  Any requests for press access after September 17th should be made by emailing directly.
