Press/Media Pass Process

It is important to ensure that all media relating to our events are produced of a high journalistic quality. We often receive requests from individuals seeking media accreditation for our events in order to simply gain free access. Therefore, in order to become accredited to attend Northern-LAN events as a member of the broadcast, web or print media, we ask that you contact us with some examples of your previous work such as:

  • Links to your website, the website must be current, regularly updated  with original content and be of a professional quality, with proof you are an author
  • Examples of gaming/eSports articles, photography or other coverage within the last 12 months where you are clearly credited as the author.
  • Links to your current company or organisation and if required, proof of status within the organisation.

Please note that press passes are intended for media organisations to provide coverage of the events and are not free tickets to participate in the event. Media representatives may not participate in any of our tournaments or competitions.
