DNCC Announces Launch of Media Credentialing Process for
the 2012 Democratic National Convention

CHARLOTTE - The Democratic National Convention Committee (DNCC) today announced the opening of the 2012 media credentialing process for the 2012 Democratic National Convention. Applications are being accepted by both the Congressional Press Galleries and the DNCC Press Gallery.

The credential application process is open from December 8, 2011, through April 15, 2012, to allow media outlets to apply in order to obtain access to the 2012 Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, the week of September 3, 2012.

The majority of press credentials for the Democratic Convention will be issued through the Congressional Press Galleries—Radio-Television, Daily, Periodical, and Photographers. The DNCC Press Gallery exists in order to credential organizations that do not fit into their categories or meet their requirements. The DNCC Press Gallery spans a range of media including specialty media, blogs, college/student media, entertainment media and other outlets that the Congressional Galleries defer.

*** Links to the Congressional Press Galleries and the DNCC Press Gallery application can be found   The credential application deadline is Friday, April 15, 2012***

If you have questions in the interim, please contact our DNCC Press Gallery team at or our Communications Department at for any editorial inquiries. Please note submitting an application does not guarantee an organization will be credentialed for the Time Warner Cable Arena site during the Convention.
