Press Registration

NYCC 2023 Press Applications Are Now Closed 

Who Qualifies

NYCC press registration is open for journalists regularly making editorial contributions. Editorial press includes writers, reporters, reviewers, producers, photographers, videographers, etc. who are attending specifically to write about NYCC and/or cover the event for newspapers, magazines, TV and radio.

Non-editorial staff, including graphic designers, marketing, public relations, and sales staff, do not qualify for a press ticket and should register for a professional ticket. Influencers and content creators do not qualify for press tickets and should instead register for a professional ticket under the content creator category.

Press Ticket Access

NYCC press tickets provide complimentary access to NYCC for all four days of the event. Press tickets are extended as a courtesy of NYCC. As with all ReedPop events, NYCC is a fans first event which means your press ticket allows access to panels as long as space is available.

Your press ticket DOES NOT allow:

  • Early or special access into NYCC
  • Guaranteed seating at panels and events
  • The ability to cut lines
  • Free access into any events requiring an additional ticket
  • Entry into pre-show lotteries for exhibitor exclusives or private autographing (sorry, but these are reserved for NYCC fans buying badges)


Please read our press and media attendance terms and conditions. Everyone who applies and is approved for a NYCC Press badge agrees to these terms.

Submitting an application does not guarantee approval. You'll be notified if you have been approved or denied within 21 business days of when you submitted your application. If approved, additional information will be provided in your confirmation email and receipt. Every individual applying for a NYCC press ticket may only apply once.

Each press ticket is issued individually. If you're applying with a team, each person on your team needs to apply and be approved separately.

(Psst, if you're approved and then email us saying you only received one ticket and need more for your team, we reserve the right to shame you for not reading these guidelines before applying like we asked.)

Press tickets are non-transferable and non-resellable. Any individuals caught selling their press ticket will be disqualified from attending future ReedPop events. This is non-negotiable.
