A Localista Magazine Press Pass will get you in places others will not. It gives you the instant credibility through the physical press pass, your Localista Magazine business cards and your Professional Press Pass web site.
Everyday countless journalists rely on their press pass to do their jobs. Presenting your press pass allows you to access restricted areas at events, trade shows or public institutions. The number of press associations and agencies has risen dramatically in recent years. Today most event organizers don't attach a great deal of importance to names of well-known press agencies, they just like to make sure that they're dealing with a legitimate journalistic partner.
A Localista Press Pass is ideal for independent bloggers, photographers, photojournalists and journalism students. Part of the application process is to provide 3 examples of your original work. The examples can be articles, photos, video or a combination thereof. Not everyone qualifies.
Anyone can print up a fake press pass credential on their color printer and try to get into an event or tradeshow. Localista Magazine is a credible organization but we take the press pass a step further by proving instant verification that can be done via any smart phone simply by scanning a QR Code. This adds a level of professionalism not available via any other press pass.
Your professional press pass web site has a section called "Current Assignments." Upon scanning of your press pass and event coordinator can click on your Current Assignments section and immediately see that you were assigned to cover their event. This reinforces your right to be there.
If there is a special event that you'd like to cover we will advocate for you by reaching out to the Event Organizer and informing them that you have been assigned to cover their event. We can't guarantee that we can get you in but we're on your side to help.
A Localista Magazine Press Pass will get you in places others will not. It gives you the instant credibility through both the physical press pass, your Localista Magazine business cards and your Professional Press Pass web site.
