Media Registration Requirements
When you complete the media registration form, you will be asked to select the type of organization that you will be representing at SIGGRAPH 2015. You must provide the supporting documentation for that type of organization before your request for media registration will be considered. Everyone 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.
A separate credential for use of cameras or video equipment must be obtained by completing the Audio-Visual Agreement when you receive your media badge at SIGGRAPH 2015.
Please Note: Even if you have qualified for a SIGGRAPH media badge in the past, you must re-qualify for SIGGRAPH 2015.
