Guidelines for press at the Congress

From 23C3 Public Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

We generally appreciate coming to and reporting from the Congress and we try to help you as much as we can. We ask you however to abide by some general rules to make co-existance with the other participants easy.


Entry and accreditation

Press can get in free but ONLY if an online registration has been completed in advance AND our following guidelines are accepted. Press without a confirmed registration must pay the SAME price as any other participant. Just showing a press card is not enough. There are no exceptions. See Registration.

Filming and Photography

Filming and taking photographs is generally possible. Visual recordings of lectures are permitted, if explicit approval has been granted by the lecturer in question. In any case, no visual recordings of the audience are permitted.

The participants of the Chaos Communication Congress insist on their right to their own image. Therefore even when events are recorded no pictures of participants may be taken unless explicit permission is granted.

Press Conference

On Wednesday, Dec 27th 2006 at 09:30h a press conference will be held by the CCC. To participate no pre-registration is necessary. If you want interviews in addition to the press conference please contact 23c3-press at to negotiate a date.


All members of the press wishing to cover the Congress are kindly requested to register in advance, in order to enable effective coordination.

In order to register, please send an e-mail to 23c3-press at providing the following information:

  • Your full name
  • Press organization
  • Contact data
  • Scan of a press pass or something similar
  • What you plan to report on at 23C3

You will get notified when your registration is completed and will receive a written confirmation. This confirmation is needed to get free entry at the congress. Without confirmation the full entry fee will be asked for at the entrance.
