General information

  • Please note that because of the numerous enquiries and checks, delays may occur in sending out codes. We shall endeavour to get back to you as quickly as possible.
  • Owing to the large number enquiries it is not possible to deal with individual queries.
  • Everyone must apply for accreditation individually via our online tool; collective enquiries cannot be taken into account.

Please check whether you can fulfil the following guidelines, which are necessary for a creator admission ticket to be issued.

  • The most important question first: Are you already 16 years old? Due to the youth protection regulations only creators aged 16 and over are permitted.
  • Are you part of a creator network? The agencies often organise the accreditation in advance. We would therefore kindly ask you to check first before using our online tool.

    • Is your website regularly fed with high-quality content news and articles?
    • Was your last article posted within the last month?
    • Are you named as the Editor in your online magazine?
    • Can you identify yourself as the owner of your streaming platform?
    • Can you prove a certain amount of reach of your activities?
    • The message of your medium is clear: Games, games and games.
    • Are colleagues of your medium already accredited? We reserve the right to limit the number of authorised individuals per medium.
    • We. Accept. No. Trolls. We will not support inappropriate contents and mobbing.
  • So that we can process your enquiry as soon as possible, please attach an appropriate document to your registration that proves you fulfil the above-mentioned criteria. For example, a screenshot of your channel information or a current article on your online magazine written by yourself.
