Media & Press
VikingsCon is a convention for fans, by fans and we welcome the media to be part of our convention. Approved media will be given complimentary Press Passes. Please understand that:
- Your Press Pass allows access to VikingsCon as long as space is permitting
- Your Press Pass does not allow early access, special access, or guaranteed seating
- Your Press Pass does not allow you to receive free professional Photo Ops or Autographs
- Your Press Pass does not allow you to cut lines
Press Applications are open to journalists making regular editorial contributions only. Editorial Press includes Writers, Reporters, Reviewers, Producers, Photographers, Cameramen, etc. who are attending specifically to write about VikingsCon and/or cover the event for newspapers, magazines, TV, podcasts, radio, etc. Non-Editorial personnel at media companies such as Marketing and Sales staff do not qualify for Press Passes and should purchase an attendee ticket. Non-Editorial applications for Press Passes will not be approved.
Press Passes are issued individually and are non-transferable. You may not loan or sell your Press Pass, and any individuals conducting such behavior will be disqualified from Press Passes at any future The Red Serpents event.
Please complete the Press Pass form in its entirety. Please understand that simply submitting this form does not guarantee you a Press Pass. It is only after this full form is received, reviewed, and approved that a Press Pass will be issued. Incomplete applications will not be approved. All forms must be received by Friday, September 1, 2018. You will hear back on the status of your application by September 15, 2018. There is no on-site registration.
YOU MUST APPLY FOR A PRESS PASS
Did you receive a Press Pass to a Red Serpents event last year? If so, understand you are not automatically approved to receive a Press Pass for VikingsCon, and you must apply again. VikingsCon is an event created for fans, and each Press Pass is a pass we're unable to put in the hands of a fan. Press Pass requests are judged on a year-to-year basis, and previously approved outlets are not automatically grandfathered in.
If you intend to come to VikingsCon with a crew (photographer, cameramen, etc.), each member of this team must complete an application. VikingsCon reserves the right to limit the number of Press Passes provided to any organization.
DECISIONS ARE FINAL
Answer every Press Pass Application question as completely as you can. There are limited Press Passes available, which will be distributed across print, radio, television, and websites, blogs, and podcasts. The Red Serpents reserve the right to approve or deny any application. This decision is final and cannot be appealed. Include any and all information in your application that will allow us to make an informed decision, as you won’t be able to submit further information later on if your application is not approved.
