Who Qualifies

Minecraft Festival media registration is open for journalists regularly making editorial contributions. Editorial media includes writers, reporters, reviewers, producers, photographers, and videographers, w etc. Who are attending specifically to write about Minecraft Festival and/or cover the event for newspapers, magazines, television, blogs, podcasts, radio, etc.

Media Badge Access

Minecraft Festival media badges provide complimentary access to the event and corresponding venues (that don't include a separate ticket) for all days of the event. Media badges are extended as a courtesy of Minecraft Festival. Minecraft Festival is an attendee first event which means your media badge allows access to panels as long as space is available. A media badge does not provide guaranteed access to panels or stages.

Your media badge does not allow:

  • Early or special access into Minecraft Festival
  • Guaranteed seating at panels and events
  • The ability to cut lines
  • Free access into any events requiring an additional ticket
  • Entry into pre-show lotteries for exhibitor exclusives or private autographing (sorry, but these are reserved for Minecraft Festival attendees who purchased tickets)

Any additional access, under certain situations, must be arranged through the Minecraft Festival media team.

Media Guidelines

Submitting an application does not guarantee approval. All media applications will be reviewed by the Minecraft Festival media team and you'll be notified if you have been approved or denied within 45 days of submitting your application. If approved, additional information will be provided in your confirmation email and receipt. Every individual applying for a Minecraft Festival media badge may only apply once.

Multiple Badges

Each media badge is issued individually. If you're applying with a team, each person on your team needs to apply and be approved separately. Minecraft Festival reserves the right to approve or deny any application and limit the number of media badges provided to each organization. If you're approved and then email us saying you only received one badge and need more for your team, you will be directed to have the rest of your team submit an application and they may or may not be approved for badges. Please thoroughly review all of the guidelines before applying.

Media badges are non-transferable and non-resellable

Any individuals caught selling their media badge will be disqualified from attending future Minecraft Festivals. This is non-negotiable.

Decisions Are Final

Minecraft Festival reserves the right to approve or deny any application. This decision is final and cannot be appealed.
