Media Registration

Media Registration Requirements
Each organization is limited to five media representatives, except university publications, which are limited to one. If there are multiple registrants for an organization, each media registrant must establish an online registration account and submit a separate registration.

Please Note: Even if you have qualified for a SIGGRAPH media badge in the past, you must re-qualify for SIGGRAPH 2010.

The deadline for advance media registration is Thursday, 25 June. Those who register after 25 June may not be included on the media list sent to exhibitors.

After we receive your online submission and supporting documentation, your information will be reviewed. If you are approved for SIGGRAPH 2010 media registration, a written confirmation will be sent to you via email. Your confirmation WILL NOT include your media badge. You must have a photo ID to pick-up your media badge in person at the Media Headquarters Office at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

A separate credential for use of cameras or video equipment must be obtained by completing the Audio-Visual Agreement when you pick-up your media badge at SIGGRAPH 2010.

When you complete the media registration online submission form, you will be asked to select the type of organization that you will be representing at SIGGRAPH 2010. You must provide the supporting documentation for that type of organization before your request for media registration will be approved. Those requesting media registration must be currently employed by a publication or news organization. Account representatives, sales executives, book authors, and engineers do not meet the criteria for media registration.
