Who can receive complimentary press registration to ACMA conferences?

Complimentary registration is available to credentialed journalists (i.e., professional reporters, editors, writers, news photographers, producers and online editors) who work for a publication, news service, broadcast outlet or news site that is regularly issued and published primarily for the dissemination of news, and operates independently from any commercial, political, government or special interest. 


How can bloggers register?

Blogger registration is handled by ACMA's Marketing and Communication Team. Bloggers seeking press credentials must be working journalists or be affiliated in an editorial capacity with a qualified news outlet as described above. As a rule, bloggers must also have been writing weekly or monthly posts for at least six months. Consideration will be given to student bloggers who are enrolled full-time in graduate business, journalism or health care, or who can demonstrate involvement in producing editorial content for collegiate publications, broadcast outlets, or news internet sites.
