- Working media must submit credential requests via email to firstname.lastname@example.org (please put “press pass request” in subject line) no later than 14 days before the event. Phone and social media messages will not be considered.
- Requests for media credentials must include a link to the media outlet you are representing, even if you are a freelancer. Your request should also include links to your content and your social media, and you should explain in your request how you plan to cover the show, who your audience is, and your expected reach.
- Requests for interviews with signing guests may not be considered unless they are received at least 30 days in advance.
- A limited amount of press passes are available per event, and media outlets must submit a new request for each show in order to be considered, unless they have been specifically invited back by a member of the Philly Show leadership.
- Press Passes are reserved for working print or online news organizations that produce and publish original content.
