Media Accreditation - Application

Comic Con Africa welcomes members of the media from around the world and is happy to provide approved media members with a complimentary media badge. As with all ReedPOP events, Comic Con Africa is a “fans first” event and approval to receive a media badge is not guaranteed. We must maintain a high standard of excellence when we award media badges so please understand that: 

  • Your media badge allows access as long as space is permitting.
  • Your media badge does not allow early access, special access or guaranteed seating.
  • Your media badge does not allow you to cut lines.
  • Your media badge will not allow access into any events requiring an additional ticket.

Complimentary media badges are extended as a courtesy of CCA. Each is issued individually and is non-transferable. You may not transfer or sell your media badge, and any individuals conducting such activity will be disqualified from media badges at future ReedPOP events.

CCA Media Applications are open to 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 CCA and/or cover the event for newspapers, magazines, TV, blogs, podcasts, radio, etc. Non-editorial personnel at media companies such as graphic designers, marketing  and sales staff do not qualify for media badges. Non-editorial applications for media badges will not be approved. Your approval for a media badge at other ReedPOP events does not guarantee you a press badge for CCA 2019. You must complete the entire media badge application whether you have been approved previously or not.

Media badges are limited in nature and will be issued only to professionally employed adults. Badges will not be issued to children, family or guests. You must be 18 or older to qualify for a media badge. CCA reserves the right to approve or deny any application and there is a limit to the number of media badges provided to each organization. Decisions are final and cannot be appealed.
