is updated weekly.
The webzine/website is represented by true journalistic activities. Samples
of reports/articles will be reviewed. As we are supportive of fan-based
websites, we wish only to support those that present themselves in a professional
journalistic manner. "Con report" websites do not necessarily
qualify as legitimate contributors or members of the press/media.
"Fan sites" based upon the works or on the individual Guest
of Honor will not be considered unless the website presents itself as
a website that is legitimate in press or media activities.
Due to the high volume of applications for media badges, their limited
numbers as well as the privileges they grant, they will be made available
to only those publications that are reporting on the convention itself
(Activities, Guests, awards, etc.). As a general rule of thumb, we request
that a minimum of three quarters of the report focus on the core aspects
of Anime North itself.

Transmitter must be equal or stronger then 1 Megawatt, or broadcast at
a minimum of 32kbps streaming connection capable of supporting a minimum

requested for frequency information, and have ready at request a sample
