Upon arriving in San Diego, be sure to bring all of your supporting documentation (described below) to the San Diego Convention Center, and your information will be reviewed. If you are approved for SIGGRAPH 2007 media registration, you will receive a media badge. You must have a photo ID to pick-up your media badge in person at the Media Headquarters Office, Room 23 of the San Diego Convention & Exhibition Center, beginning Saturday, 4 August at 5 pm.

A separate credential for use of cameras or video equipment must be obtained by completing the Audio-Visual Agreement when you pick-up your media badge.

When you apply for media registration, you will be asked to select the type of organization that you will be representing at SIGGRAPH 2007. You must provide the supporting documentation for that type of organization before your request for media registration will be approved. Those requesting media registration must be currently employed by a publication or news organization. Account representatives, public relations representatives, sales executives, book authors, and engineers do not meet the criteria for media registration.
