Press credentials for magazines, newsletters, non-daily newspapers, and online publications for the National Political Conventions are handled through the Senate Periodical Press Gallery. All correspondents interested in obtaining credentials should first read and review the rules and regulations of the Periodical Press Gallery.
Only one designated person per organization should complete an application.
If you believe that you and your publication qualify for convention credentials, begin the application process by clicking on the appropriate link below:

The Senate Periodical Press Gallery is not responsible for applications submitted to the incorrect gallery. Please make sure you are applying to the correct gallery:
Senate Daily Press Gallery (If you work for a daily print organization).
Senate Photographers Gallery (If you are a photographer).
House Radio/TV Gallery (If you work for a web page and have significant technical requirements for streaming video and audio).
If the Periodical Press Gallery has not received an organization's application by the deadline, it will not be honored.
Reminder: All correspondents wearing a convention press pass must be engaged in the gathering and reporting of news, dress in professional attire, and adhere to journalist standards of integrity and conduct at all times. Organizations are responsible for all credentials issued to them and for the conduct of anyone holding their credentials. http://www.senate.gov/galleries/pdcl/conventions2012.html
