Press Application Form

Sakura-Con welcomes and appreciates media coverage. Please complete the press application below to request a press badge to Sakura-Con. You may be contacted with questions in the process of determining approval for a press badge, so please be sure to add press@sakuracon.org to your email address book or email white list in order to receive emails from Sakura-Con Press. All applications must be received electronically by March 23rd. Sakura-Con does not guarantee all applicants will be granted a press badge, but will respond to all applications received before March 23rd. After March 23rd, any requests for press passes after that date risk not being reviewed due to time constraints.

Sakura-Con cannot guarantee approval on any interview requests. All requests are subject to the approval of our guests, and they may require additional information from the requesting organization before granting an interview. If that is the case, press members will be contacted by Sakura-Con Press or a representative of the guest with further questions. Please note, any interview scheduling requested after March 23rd runs a high risk of not being approved because of tight scheduling and time constraints relative to the convention date.

The application for 2017 is now closed. Thank you for your interest.

If you have press inquiries please contact press@sakuracon.org.
