Media Qualification/Criteria

Media Badge:

The publication has to be in print for at least one year with at least a 2,000
circulation per issue.

Samples of such publication may be required to be submitted to Anime North.
Any smaller publication/media representation will be considered at the discretion of Anime North

Webzine/Web-publishing Media Badge:

The website has to be live prior to January 1, 2005. (Note: newly launched but legitimate websites will be accepted under the discretion of Anime North).

5,000 hits/month and at least 1,000 unique visitors per month. Please provide a live link to both your website and to your statistics page.

The webzine/website 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.

Radio: (Web and/or FM/AM)

Transmitter must be equal or stronger then 1 Megawatt, or broadcast at a minimum of 32kbps streaming connection capable of supporting a minimum of 500 simultaneous connections.

Must serve an average daily audience of 1000 listeners. AM/FM will be requested for frequency information, and have ready at request a sample of programming if transmit radius falls outside the GTA. Web casters will be requested for a live link to the website including the broadcasting link, please have hosting and connection information available if requested.

The webzine/website/radio has to cover at least one of the following:

  • Anime
  • Manga
  • Conventions
  • Japanese Culture
  • Canadian Pop Culture
  • Asian Culture
  • Gaming
