Media Request Tipsheet

Interested in covering the INK Conference, in association with TED?
 
INK invites a small number of requesting journalists to cover each conference. We give priority to proposals from journalists:
+ who work for mainstream and online media outlets capable of reaching large or influential audiences
+ who have a track record of insightful coverage in areas related to INK
+ who have a specific commission for coverage of the conference (and not just of speakers or others attending) 
 
Some things to note:
+ We take great care in filming INK for INKtalks. It is very rare that we invite outside cameras for video and TV efforts, but we are happy to evaluate all requests for conference footage. We do not admit outside photographers.
+ We are unable to consider press passes for freelancers without an assignment letter from the outlet for which you wish to report. 
 
Contact us with your name, the name of your media outlet, and your proposed area of coverage. Press decisions are generally made in the months preceding the conferences, and accepted attending press are notified approximately one month before each event.
