Media Accreditation Guidelines
When you apply for media registration, you will be asked to select the type of organisation that you will be representing at SIGGRAPH Asia 2008. You must represent a media format that fits into one of these categories in order to be considered for SIGGRAPH Asia 2008 media credentials. You must provide the supporting documentation for that type of organisation before your request for media registration will be approved.
Those requesting media registration must be currently employed by a publication or news organisation. Account representatives, public relations representatives, sales executives, book authors, and engineers do not meet the criteria for media registration.
Please Note: Even if you have qualified for a SIGGRAPH media badge in the past, you must re-qualify for SIGGRAPH Asia 2008.
