Press Registration for MCM Manchester Comic Con is closed. Please read the below copy carefully for details.

MCM Comic Con press registration is open for media members regularly making editorial contributions (editorial press) only. Editorial press includes writers, reporters, reviewers, producers, photographers, cameramen, etc. who are attending specifically to write about MCM Comic Con and/or cover the event for newspapers, magazines, TV, blogs, podcasts, radio, etc.


Press badges are limited in nature and will be issued only to professionally employed adults. Badges will not be issued to children, family or guests.

If you intend to come to MCM Comic Con with a crew (photographer, etc.), each member of this crew must complete an application.

MCM Comic Con reserves the right to approve or deny any application and limit the number of press badges provided to any organisation. Decisions are final and cannot be appealed. Each is issued individually and is non-transferable and non-resellable. Any individuals caught transferring or selling their press badge will be disqualified from press badges at future MCM and ReedPOP events.

As with all ReedPOP events, MCM Comic Con is a ‘fans first’ event and approval to receive a press badge is not guaranteed. We must maintain a high standard of excellence when we award press badges so please understand that:

  • Your press badge allows access as long as space is permitting. Your press badge does not allow early access, special access or guaranteed seating. Please plan to arrive for panels you want to see early.
  • Your press badge does not allow you to cut lines.
  • Your press badge will not allow access into any events requiring an additional ticket.

All press registrations are subject to approval. You will be notified if you have been approved for a press badge within 21 days of when you submitted your registration. If your registration is NOT approved, you will also be notified. If you have been approved, additional information regarding press badge distribution will be provided in your confirmation email and receipt.

After reading this page, please click through to the online form which follows. Complete this form in its entirety.

Please understand that simply submitting this form does not guarantee you a press badge. 

It is only after this full form is received, reviewed and approved that a press badge will be issued. Incomplete applications will not be approved.

We highly recommend that you apply early, because we will reach maximum capacity for press badges prior to MCM Comic Con.

Please note that there will be no onsite press registration during MCM Comic Con.

And remember: Answer every question as truthfully and completely as you can. Please provide as much and as detailed information as you can. Incomplete and vague applications will not be approved.

Please contact PR Manager Annie Byrne ( if you have any queries.
