For CTM and transmediale 2016

From January 29 to February 7, 2016, the transmediale and CTM festivals jointly offer one of the world's most pertinent, adventurous, and comprehensive reviews of the way new technologies and digital culture are shaping our lives.

Press professionals may apply for accreditation until 5 January 2016, and are invited to apply for one of three types of press accreditation:

  • transmediale → 15 € (incl. 7% VAT)
  • CTM  → 15 € (incl. 7% VAT)
  • transmediale + CTM Connect → 20 € (incl. 7% VAT)

CTM and transmediale are looking forward to welcoming you in Berlin!

Accreditation process

Following approval, press professionals will receive confirmation emails with further details, including information on pass pickup locations and payment.

The first wave of approvals will be sent out from mid-December. transmediale + CTM reserve the right to evaluate the applications individually for each festival and to deny requests. For example, an application for transmediale + CTM.16 Connect may be changed to an accreditation for one of the festivals only, 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 2016 venues, CTM Press Accreditations will be limited. For certain CTM 2016 venues, the Press Accreditation does not guarantee entry, so please arrive early to avoid disappointment.

The transmediale 2016 + CTM 2016 Press Accreditation grants access to most transmediale 2016 and CTM 2016 events, excluding: the transmediale main performance, the transmediale/CTM collaborative concerts at HKW, the CTM 2016 Opening Concert on 30.01 at HAU1, and several CTM 2016 concerts TBA. Journalists with proven intent to review these special events should contact the CTM respectively transmediale press office beforehand in order to arrange access.

Recordings, Photography and Video

No audio recordings without confirmation from the CTM and/or transmediale press office beforehand.

While most festival venues do not have photography restrictions, exceptions exist. Photos are generally NOT allowed at Berghain/Panorama Bar. Downloadable high-resolution press images for most programmes will be made available for reviewers the following day via the festival's Flickr-account.

We also request that photographers DO NOT use flash in audiovisual performances and screenings, and that they remain aware of sensitive performance settings (quiet performances, special set-ups, etc).
All video documentation needs to be confirmed with the CTM and/or transmediale press office beforehand. Video is generally NOT allowed at all venues. If special permission is given, we request that videographers refrain from using additional bright lights.

High Resolution Press Photos

High-resolution press images of artists/participants, as well as festival graphics are available for download via the press sections of both festival websites. CTM also provides pictures from festival events for reviewers. Images will be made available the day following the performance via the festival's Flickr-account. All photos are for use as part of festival coverage only, and must be credited as specified.
