Media Accreditation

Please note that media passes will be awarded according to pre-established selection criteria, and not on the basis of the order in which requests are received. No media passes will be handed out onsite. Please follow official procedure as detailed on the Request for Accreditation form. No exceptions will be granted. Please note the following:

  • Media accreditation does NOT automatically grant access to guests and celebrities. Any interview requests must be submitted beforehand to the convention’s media relations team.
  • Please note that Shawicon is first and foremost an event for fans. When they are at their booths, guests and celebrities are there to sign autographs, not for interviews.
  • Autographs and photo ops must be paid for. These are not included with any pass, including the media pass.
  • Unrequested or impromptu interviews with guests and celebrities are strictly FORBIDDEN. All interviews must be approved beforehand by the convention’s media relations team.
