Press Accreditation

Thank you for your interest in covering the SXSW Conferences & Festivals.

Press Accreditation for the 2016 event is now closed. We do not accept walk-up requests. If you've submitted your press application and are wondering about your status, please remember these take 15 business days to process from the time your application was completed, which is marked by the date you uploaded your Letter of Assignment.

If you're trying to reach a specific person in the Press Department, please contact them directly:

We will begin accepting applications for SXSW 2017 in August 2016.
