All requests for a Press/Industry credential must go through this site.

For more information on our Professional Registration requirements, please see our FAQ.

All fields with a * are required.

    • For Press, all of these must be included in your submission:
      • one or more links to an article published by you written on or after January 1, 2024
      • if working as a freelance journalist, a “letter of assignment” must be emailed to us from your editor-in-chief with verifiable information using an appropriate company domain

    • For Industry, all of these must be included in your submission:
      • links to a non-publicly editable website to your works
      • all works must be released and widely available on major platform
      • public emails are strongly discouraged - please use your professional email address

    • as a last resort, we do accept a W2/1099/Paystub from your company but please censor all confidential information (this is absolutely not necessary, in the event that it’s more convenient to provide this over the other requirements.)
    • please do not send us scans of your business cards
    • in the event that something doesn’t make sense or you need help, please email us ASAP so we can help resolve issues that you may have with the application process (include your account number if you are at step 2 or later)
    • for a full run-down on the exact things acceptable as verification (and the formats), please see the Professional Registration FAQ.

  4. Each person must have credentials.
