How do I get a Press Pass?

All journalists must pre-register to qualify for press accreditation. Please email us with your name, email address, mobile telephone number, publication and position and we will issue you with a press pass. Please note that the press pass allows entry to the main Science Festival venues but does not permit entry into any ticketed events.

How do I get tickets to events?

Once you receive your accreditation confirmation, you will be sent a ticket request form – please complete this and return to us, and we will allocate one ticket per publication per event.


How do I get photographs of events?

We have a library of high resolution Science Festival images – please contact us for details.

Photographers for the 2015 Science Festival are welcome – but must arrange a press pass in advance. Photocalls for specific events will be arranged daily, and an email invitation sent out to all photographers the previous day. If you wish to be added to this email list, please email us with your contact details.

How do I arrange interviews with scientists and participants?

All requests to interview scientists, participants and staff at the 2015 Edinburgh International Science Festival should be directed through the press office.

Can I film or record events? 

This may be possible for some events, with the permission of the participants. Please contact us and we will do everything we can to facilitate your request.
