1. Media credentials are reserved for working members of the press only. This includes editors, reporters, authors, bloggers, producers, camera crews and photographers.
2. Credentials will not be granted to non-editorial media professionals including publishers, general managers, account representatives, sales executives, brand executives and PR/marketing representatives, as well as anyone whose primary purpose for attending Homebrew Con is, in our judgment, for reasons other than covering it as working news media.
3. This form must be completed for each staffer who plans to attend from your outlet. All media outlets are limited to three (3) credentials per news outlet, inclusive of writers, photographers and production crew. Please fill out the form exactly as you wish for your name, title and outlet to appear on your credentials.
4. Bloggers: Blogs must cover current beer, homebrewing and/or related news. New posts must be created on a weekly or more frequent basis. Blog traffic must exceed a minimum of 2,000 unique visits a month.
5. Freelancers & Video Production Companies: Crews must provide a verifiable letter of assignment from a bona fide media outlet. Those hired by breweries and/or Homebrew Con attendees to film at Homebrew Con will not be considered for media accreditation.
6. In some cases, we may request additional verification about your past work or coverage plans. Those who have attended Homebrew Con as credentialed media in the past may be asked to show coverage they produced as a result.
7. A history of being registered at previous AHA events including the National Homebrewers Conference does not guarantee approval.
Applications will be reviewed beginning in March 2018. From there, please allow up to three weeks for your application to be processed.
