Press accreditation application form

Please Read Before Completing Your Application

Press professionals may apply for accreditation until January 14, 2015, and are invited to apply for one of three types of press accreditation:

  • transmediale 2015 Press Accreditation
  • CTM 2015 Press Accreditation
  • dual transmediale 2015 + CTM 2015 Press Accreditation

Following approval, press professionals will receive confirmation emails with further details, including where and how to pick up your pass. 

transmediale 2015 and CTM 2015 reserve the right to evaluate the applications individually for each festival and to deny requests. For instance, an application for Dual Press Accreditation may be changed to Accreditation for only one of the festivals, and applications to any of the three types of press accreditation may also be entirely denied.

Please note that due to the limited capacities of CTM 2015 venues, CTM Press Accreditations will be limited. For certain CTM 2015 venues, the Press Accreditation does not guarantee entry, so please arrive early to avoid disappointment.

The transmediale 2015 + CTM 2015 Press Accreditation grants access to all transmediale 2015 and most CTM 2015events (exceptions tba). Journalists with proven intent to review these special event should contact the CTM press office beforehand.  

The administrative charge for accreditations is 15 € (CTM or transmediale) and 20 € (dual), incl. 7% VAT.
