The plan is to jury Press/Media sometime in the Summer (May-August). Prior to when the jury process begins, a two week notice will be given.

Up to four passes may be given per Press/Media company, and each company will have additional scrutiny depending on the amount of passes requested.

Only one discounted photographer pass is awarded per photographer application.

No, each company will be responsible for their own internet solution.

Press/Media will be granted early access to assigned events. Panels will be handled on a case-by-case basis by the Panel Hosts. Your pass will not grant you early access to the Vendor Room unless otherwise agreed to beforehand.

You are authorized to hold paid photoshoots on OWCM grounds. Your pass will be marked with authorized photographer so people know you have been vetted by Holmat’s Press/Photographer team. šŸ™‚
