Press Requirements

Members of the press must be specifically writing a story or photojournalistic project about Anime Midwest. Documentaries about cosplay and conventions are not qualified, and should purchase attendee badges. We accept inquiries from news outlets, TV stations, radio stations, newspaper, websites, and prominent blogs. If we are able to confirm and verify your status as a reliable news source, we will issue you complimentary press passes.

Industry Requirements

Industry members - including employees of anime distribution companies, production companies, and other industry organizations - can sometimes qualify for complimentary admission. We ask industry members seeking to attend the convention to offer our attendees some of their knowledge, experience, or insight through a panel or other means, in exchange for free access to the convention and its events.
