How Interview Requests Work

Requesting an interview is a simple process:

  1. Prior to requesting an interview we ask that you review our Interview Request Guidelines.
  2. Reporters approved for Media Access must be invited to request interviews with Walk of Fame Guests. Requests received from reporters and/or outlets not invited to request interviews will not be processed. ALL reporters are invited to request interviews with Dragon Con guests not in the Walk of Fame.
  3. Submit your requests via the Interview Request Form and/or the  Walk of Fame Interview Request Form Please use one form for each interview you are requesting. Forms containing multiple requests will not be processed.
  4. Once you are confirmed as approved credentialed media eligible for Interview Requests, your information will be added to the Interview Request Spreadsheet.
  5. After Interview Requests close at 11:59 p.m. CST on August 15, 2019, the Interview Request Spreadsheet will be sent to the guests’ representatives for review.
  6. If your Interview Request is approved, you will be notified via e-mail of the date, time, and location of your interview. If you do not receive an e-mail, your request has not been approved. Approvals are sent the week of the convention, including Friday.
    * Your interview will be automatically scheduled into the Interview Room at a time/date that fits into the guest’s schedule.

You may also use the Interview Request Form to request interviews with a Dragon Con spokesperson, phone interviews, and in-studio interviews.

* Submission of an Interview Request does not guarantee an interview. Guests and their representatives reserve the right to decline an interview at any time.

Please Note: We are only able to process interview requests for reporters who have been approved for media access for Dragon Con 2019.

    • Requests from reporters/media outlets whose credentials have not yet been processed will be held until the status of their application is determined.
    • Requests  for interviews with Walk of Fame guests from reporters/media outlets that have not been approved for media access and/or have not been approved for interviews, will not be processed.
