Applications for Media Badges are now open! Please read the information below in it’s entirety before submitting an application.
OrcaCon welcomes members of the Media and is happy to provide approved media members with a complimentary Media Badge. We must maintain a high standard of excellence when we award Media Badges, therefore we hope you understand the following:
- Your Media Badge allows access as long as space is permitting.
- Your Media Badge does not allow early access, special access or guaranteed seating.
- Your Media Badge does not allow you to cut lines.
- Your Media Badge will not allow access into any events requiring an additional ticket.
Complimentary Media Badges are extended as a courtesy. Each is issued individually and is non-transferable. You may not transfer or sell your Media Badge and any individuals conducting such activity will be disqualified from Media Badges at future OrcaCon events.
OrcaCon Media Registration is open for journalists regularly making editorial contributions (Editorial Media) only. Editorial Media includes Writers, Reporters, Reviewers, Producers, Photographers, Camerapersons , etc. who are attending specifically to write about OrcaCon to cover the event for newspapers, magazines, TV, blogs, podcasts, radio, etc.
You must complete the entire Media Badge application whether you have been approved previously or not. Media Badges are limited in nature and will be issued only to professionally employed adults. Badges will not be issued to children, family or guests. OrcaCon reserves the right to approve or deny any application and limit the number of Media Badges provided to each organization.
Please Note: There is no audio or videotaping allowed during OrcaCon Panel & Workshop sessions unless prior approval is granted by the OrcaCon PR Team and the panelists. If you are planning to bring a camera crew to shoot video on the OrcaCon Show Floor or other events, you must check in at the Info Desk and be escorted by an OrcaCon Media Representative. If you are applying with a team, each person on your team needs to apply and be approved separately. Every individual applying for a Media Badge may only apply once. Please note: Media Badges are non-transferable and non-resellable. Decisions are final and cannot be appealed.
