Are you a media professional interested in attending Origins to gather and produce content for your media outlet? Origins is here to provide you with access to the newest information in gaming and stories from the show. 

All press badge applications are reviewed to ensure media credentials are met. Applicants that are approved will be sent an email with a code to use when registering their Origins press badge. It may take a few weeks to receive your code. 

Press Badge Application


All pre-approved press badges can be picked up in the Press Room.
