Press Credentials, Press ID, Press Card

You are serious about your passion for journalism. You have a vision, a story to tell and a goal to convey this information in the best way possible. That's why you are here, to seek out and find your best possible option to help you achieve your goals. 

We will help you with these goals. We will help with the resources, support and connections you need to help grow, improve and flourish as a journalist. Do not rely on fictitious, nonexistent news agencies, organizations and so called "Free Press" organizations or "Alternative Agencies". 
You may have already looked at other organizations/agencies. If you have, you probably found that if you combine ALL of them they still do not have the member base that we do! You may have also found that several of them are really the same company and can really do very little to help you achieve your goals.
While you may have rights as a citizen, those rights can be and often are inhibited. By becoming a member, you will have access to the support to overcome these barriers. We want to help you as a journalist and help you grow. 

The US Press Association provides extensive support for it's members. 

You can do it! And we're here to help.

Don't be fooled by sites that use stock photos of reporters, photographers & journalists. You may even find websites offering "Free Press Credentials", however they keep NO records of their members. If there is no record, what are you really becoming a part of? Will they be there when you need them?

We are the original. The USPA! We are here to support our members and to help them achieve their goals!

History speaks for itself.
