Press & Pro Tickets Overview

Press Registration Is Closed

Press Registration for New York Comic Con 2016 is now closed. There will be no onsite Press Registration. All Press Badges are allocated and no more will be released.

New York Comic Con welcomes members of the Press from around the world and is happy to provide approved media members with a complimentary NYCC Press Badge. NYCC Press Registration is open for journalists regularly making editorial contributions (Editorial Press) only. Editorial Press includes Writers, Reporters, Reviewers, Producers, Photographers, Cameramen, etc. who are attending specifically to write about NYCC and/or cover the event for newspapers, magazines, TV, blogs, podcasts, radio, etc.

As with all ReedPOP events, NYCC is a “Fans First” event and approval to receive a Press Badge is not guaranteed. We must maintain a high standard of excellence when we award Press Badges so please understand that: 

  • Your Press Badge allows access as long as space is permitting.
  • Your Press Badge does not allow early access, special access or guaranteed seating. Please plan to arrive for Panels you want to see early and do not schedule interviews with Exhibitors prior to the Show Floor opening.
  • Your Press Badge does not allow you to cut lines.
  • Your Press Badge will not allow access into any events requiring an additional ticket.

All Press Registrations are subject to approval. You will be notified if you have been approved for a Press Badge within 21 days of when you submitted your registration. If your registration is NOT approved, you will also be notified. If you have been approved, additional information regarding the Press Lounge and Badge distribution will be provided in your confirmation email and receipt.

Complimentary Press Badges are extended as a courtesy of NYCC. Each is issued individually. If you are applying with a team, each person on your team needs to apply and be approved separately. Every individual applying for a NYCC Press Badge may only apply once. Please note: NYCC Press Badges are non-transferable and non-resellable. Any individuals caught transferring or selling their Press Badge will be disqualified from Press Badges at future ReedPOP events.

We highly recommend that you apply early as it is likely that we will reach maximum capacity for Press Badges to NYCC 2016 prior to the Show dates.

Professional Registration Is Closed

Pro Registration is now closed. No further applications will be accepted. Thank you for your interest in New York Comic Con.

NYCC welcomes Professionals across the full spectrum of pop culture industries and is happy to provide a Professional Badge to Artists, Buyers, Creators, Editors, Educators, Librarians, Licensors, Producers, Publishers, Retailers and Writers currently working, or retired from comics and popular arts. Due to the volume of applications, we cannot provide Professional Badges to support staff, such as administrative staff, facilities, IT, operations and others who are not directly involved in the creative process.

We do not provide the opportunity to purchase additional NYCC Badges upon approval.

Please note: Professional Badges do not guarantee seating and do not include admission into any ticketed Special Events. Special Events Tickets must be purchased separately.

You must apply for a Professional Badge for NYCC 2016 between Friday, April 1, 2016 at 12:00 PM EDT and Friday, April 29, 2016 at 11:59 AM EDT.

Applying as a Professional for New York Comic Con does not guarantee that you will be provided with a Professional Badge for NYCC 2016. Your application will be reviewed and a response on your status sent to you by Friday, May 13, 2016. If your application is approved, you will be prompted by email to complete your registration.

Part two of your registration must be completed within 10 business days of acceptance. Applications that are not finalized within 10 business days will be cancelled and a Badge for NYCC 2016 will not be provided. 

Once NYCC Professional Registration has closed no late applications will be accepted. All Professional Registration will take place during this time frame. Any late applications will not be accepted due to the limited number of Professional Badges available.
