Pennsylvania Press Passes
All media personnel who work or freelance for PNA member newspapers are eligible to apply for a Press Pass.
Offered by the PNA, a Pennsylvania Press Pass helps you gain access to accident and incident scenes. While a Press Pass is not a government ID, it has been widely publicized to law enforcement agencies as a way to help police and other emergency personnel quickly identify and verify media personnel.
Please note, applications cannot be processed without completed and signed applications, submitted photos and payment. Allow up to three weeks for application to be processed.
This year, we continue to offer a school-year press pass for college students at a discounted rate. Download the College Press Pass Form.
