Democratic National Convention Opens Credentials to Content Creators

CHICAGO – Today, for the first time in convention history, the 2024 Democratic National Convention Committee (DNCC) is opening a credential request process designed to enable content creators to experience and capture a political convention like never before. Content creators can apply to receive media credentials that will provide access to key spaces across the United Center throughout the four days of the convention.

Similar to traditional media, the DNCC will provide credentialed creators with logistical assistance tailored to their needs, allowing them to cover the convention, connect with surrogates and VIPs, and share the convention experience with their audiences in a way that suits their media consumption and sharing styles.

“Creators have revolutionized the way Americans consume information and content, and their innovations will continue to play a critical role in how the American people view not only this election cycle, but every election cycle moving forward,” said Cayana Mackey-Nance, Democratic National Convention Committee Director of Digital Strategy. “We are leveling the playing field between content creators and traditional media, and ensuring that more Americans than ever before are able to experience and engage with this critical part of our Democratic process.”

“When the world turns their eyes to Chicago this August, Joe Biden’s record of progress and hopeful vision for the future will stand in stark contrast to Donald Trump and MAGA Republicans’ chaos and division,” said Matt Hill, Democratic National Convention Committee Senior Director of Communications. “We are meeting Americans where they are and making sure they know what’s on the line in November, no matter how or where they see their content.”

As Americans continue to consume information and content in new and changing ways, the convention team is committed to offering a dynamic, inclusive experience that will reach Americans within and beyond the United Center. The DNCC will also provide access to convention video clips and content to creators and traditional media alike who will cover the event remotely.
