General Press Information

As a member of the press, you are expected to conduct yourself in a professional and courteous manner while attending the convention. Failure to follow Hydra Comic Con attendee policies, abusing press privileges or performing any other action Hydra Comic Con deems unprofessional may result in revocation of the Press Pass.

We request that all articles etc be posted within two weeks of the convention’s dates. Failure to provide coverage or insufficient coverage may result in future Press Pass applications to be denied.

Submitting a request for press access does not guarantee that you will receive press access. The total number of Press access badges is limited; as such, it’s possible that your organization will not receive as many badges as requested.
