The 2014 SXSW season officially kicks off on Thursday, August 1, which also means this is the first day to apply for press credentials.
If you're a journalist in good standing with SXSW and on assignment to cover the event from your managing editor or producer, then you are eligible to apply for a press credential.
We'll post more information about the application process on our Accreditation page, but please mark your calendars for Thursday, August 1. In the meantime, further questions may be answered in our FAQ.
While we cannot guarantee approval of press credential requests, should you be approved, applying early increases your chances of securing a hotel either downtown or within close proximity.
As a reminder, dates for SXSWeek 2014 are as follows:
- SXSWedu (March 3-6, 2014)
- SXSW Interactive (March 7-11, 2014)
- SXSW Film (March 7-15, 2014)
- SXSW Music (March 11-16, 2014)
