To find out which companies offer benefits, one only has to visit their websites and go to the Press or Media section and they will usually detail how you can receive these very valuable benefits.

New Silver Membership For Spouses, Friends and Crew Members
We realized that our current membership levels were simply not addressing many potential members needs. Some inquiries requested a companion or crew membership rate for a mate, travel companion or crew member that didn’t want, or need the full membership package, but did need Press ID to gain access to events that required press identification.
Married couples also requested Press ID for their spouses so they could both enjoy the many benefits afforded members of the Press. Imagine trying to take ones wife or husband to a trade show that only allowed those in the trade or the press access. Traveling and going to museums, bus tours, etc. meant only the member of IPA would receive the benefit, now their mates can as well.
Other media outlets asked for a corporate rate for their staff. One full membership enables these outlets to publish on our sites and enjoy full member benefits and their other staff members can now join as Silver members at a lower cost.
Check out our new Membership Options and take advantage of our Silver Membership Level now only $150 for the year, the perfect option for your staff or crew too.
Our Support Team, Your Goals, Friendship
Our support staff is made up of members that have proven they can publish high quality articles, photos and videos. These IPA members have volunteered to help our new members get started. If you are a beginner, or a professional, and are looking to make additional income, or want to enjoy the satisfaction that comes when you see your works published on our site, then membership is for you.
Some members simply enjoy the things they love to do, writing, photography or videography and have found IPA has given them the knowledge and know-how to improve their skills. Our many social networking groups and fan pages, as well as our Members Only Group on Facebook enables our members to meet other members with similar interests while building new friendships.
Why You Want To Do The Work
IPA members, as all members of the legitimate media, enjoy many benefits and perks. As you read our articles and corporate and member testimonials you will see that our members really do the work. Those members not only receive VIP treatment, but are invited to cover many exciting events.
Many members attend and cover: concerts, shows, attractions, cruises, travel resorts, trade shows, sporting events and so much more. Those that only want the benefits of being a member of IPA, and never publish their works on our sites, usually find there are limits to many of these benefits.
You need to do the work to enjoy the many benefits, plain and simple. An IPA press card is simply a means of identification in most cases. Those that grant major media access, or benefits to events, will usually go through a vetting process. They want to evaluate an individual for possible approval or acceptance. They want to see the quality of your work as well as, the quality of the publication.
It is therefore important that you have your work published in a legitimate, high quality publication. Having your works published on both IPA and IMPress, means even more exposure and credibility. On many event website’s press request form, they will usually ask for the links to your articles, images or videos before granting access or benefits. For this and many other reasons, it is vital to publish your best work on our sites. Now you have two sites you can point to. If you qualify, IMPress is a great platform to showcase a members works, and you can qualify for a staff position there too. There is no extra cost to belong to both sites, it is a perk for those that do the work.
