To apply for credentials, the assigning Editor/Producer must fill out the following online application form. If you are a freelance journalist, you must be on assignment from a media outlet. Photographers must also be on assignment. Spec photography, portfolio photography, and personal website photography are not valid assignments. If you are not the assigning Editor/Producer or are a freelance journalist or photographer, please forward this form to the appropriate person to be completed.
We take your coverage plans into consideration when reviewing your application to cover Podcast Movement and expect coverage to be thoughtful, insightful, informative and consistent with your stated coverage plan. We do not consider social media or a compilation of photos, videos or articles unrelated to Podcast Movement official events as press coverage.
Please note the following:
ONE designated point person in your media outlet should complete this application, on behalf of your organization, for UP TO ONE person wishing to cover the event on behalf of the outlet.
Requests for accreditation will only be considered if submitted via this official online process with the online application form completed accordingly. Application requests sent by email will not be accepted.
As part of this online credential application, the assigning Editor/Producer MUST provide a letter of assignment on behalf of each individual attendee on company letterhead, stating a description of your outlet, the name of the journalist(s) assigned to attend and the scope of the coverage. If you are submitting multiple attendees, you only need to write one letter of assignment, that lists coverage details for each individual on one overarching document. Just be sure to re-attach it directly to each individual application. If you are a freelance journalist or photographer, you must be on assignment from a publication and provide an official letter of assignment.
Only actively covering, legitimate media will be considered for credentials. Analysts, Market Researchers, Marketing / Advertising firms, Brand Content Producers, Consultants, Media Coaches, Educators, Filmmakers, etc. are not included in the Podcast Movement definition of legitimate media. If you fall into this category, but are a contributor to an outlet that meets our qualifications, you must be on assignment, and provide a Letter of Assignment from your Editor.
Press Credential Applications should be filled out as soon as possible, and no later than August 13, 2022 for "PM22". No Applications will be considered after this date, and walk-up requests will not be granted.
Your application is not considered complete until receipt of your letter of assignment. Please email your letter of assignment to firstname.lastname@example.org
within 5 business days of filling out this application.
Once your application is complete, please allow Podcast Movement 5 complete business days to consider your request.
Podcast Movement reserves the right to approve or deny accreditation. The decision is final and cannot be appealed.
As events that are geared towards podcasters as the attendees, we unfortunately cannot grant credentials to anyone whose sole qualification as media is as the host of a podcast. Thank you for understanding!
