There will be a press office at the Congress where members of the press can do interviews and find people from the CCC press team. We will also help you getting in contact with speakers.
The Chaos Communication Congress is an event for hackers, nerds and other beings with a creative and critical view of live. The participants expect the press people to wear the press ID badge all the time and to show a certain degree of non-intrusive behavior, especially regarding the right not to be filmed or photographed. Some participants neither want to be filmed, photographed or interviewed. Journalists are kindly asked to respect the spirit of the event and the requirements of the participants.
Filming and taking photographs is generally possible if nobody objects. Visual recordings of lectures are permitted. In any case, no visual recordings of the lecture 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.
There will be no free entry for journalists. Journalists will have to pay for an usual day pass. Please note, that there will be only a small amount of day passes.
Only if you are a professional photographer or a TV news team, please send an e-mail to presse (at) ccc.de to get free entry. In your message please tell us which media entity you are working for and the day and time you wish to come.
Press ID cards
Every member of the press is obliged to carry a badge with the word "PRESS" on it, clearly visible. The IDs will be issued at the entrance.
TV, Photo, Video
Participants decide by themselves if they want to speak to journalists or not and if they want to be photographed or filmed in any way. Please respect this right all the times.
Same rules apply to audio.
As curious hackers, we are more than happy if you are able to send us an copy of your article about the Congress. Please mail them to CCCV, Postfach 640236, 10048 Berlin, Germany, send digital articles to presse (at) ccc.de, or submit a link to our press coverage wiki-page. Thank you very much in advance!
