Anime NYC welcomes press outlets from New York City and around the world, and we’re happy to provide approved members of the media with complimentary Press Passes.
2022 Press registration is already closed. If you missed this and are still interested in a press badge, please reach out to Logan Metzler at email@example.com.
There is no guarantee of receiving a Press Badge, but if Anime NYC can offer any additional Press badges, we will let you know. There is no set amount of time this could take, and you will be reached out to only if a Press Badge can be assigned to you.
Your Press Pass allows complimentary access during all public hours. Your Press Pass does NOT allow early access or special access. Your Press Pass does NOT allow you to cut lines. Your Press Pass does NOT guarantee you seats. Your Press Pass does NOT guarantee you autographs or free autographs from guests. Everyone attending Anime NYC as Press MUST follow all Anime NYC policies – including our Anti-Harassment rules.
Press Registration is open to journalists making regular editorial contributions only. Editorial Press includes Writers, Reporters, Reviewers, Producers, Photographers, and Cameramen who are attending specifically to cover Anime NYC. Non-Editorial personnel at media companies such as Marketing and Sales staff do not qualify for Press Passes and will not be approved. Friends and family of Editorial Press also do not qualify for Press Registration.
Press Passes will not be approved for dormant outlets or outlets created only with the intent of obtaining free admission. If you’re applying with a website that hasn’t been updated in six months, a blog that’s launching soon, or a YouTube channel with only two videos, you’re not likely to be approved. Anime NYC checks every application that is submitted.
Press Passes are non-transferable. You may not loan or sell your Press Pass, and anyone conducting such behavior will have their Press Pass revoked and will be disqualified from Press Passes at future Anime NYC events.
Please only have one member of your media outlet apply for badges – he or she can apply for your full team. This person should be your organization’s main contact, and they will be responsible for picking up all of your badges onsite.
If approved for Press Passes, all your badges will be available for pickup in the Press Room at Anime NYC. Press Badges are not mailed in advance.
If you’d like to speak with an invited guest, please arrange this through our Press Team prior to the show after your Press Passes have been approved. Interviews with talent cannot be guaranteed at the event. All our guests have approved schedules and onsite requests are very difficult to fulfill.
