IPA is dedicated to helping our members enjoy the many benefits of being part of the legitimate media.  We all know that members of the Press enjoy many benefits and perks and those that do the work, enjoy even more.  

Once you are a member, there are no additional costs other than your annual membership fees.  You will receive the education and support you need to learn how to publish professional articles.

Our many How-To articles and videos and the help of our support team will help you every step of the way.

Some of the Perks


You can also apply for media access to all sorts of events going on around the world. Our members attend international festivals, concerts, shows, and even many family attractions.  Like Disney World, Disneyland, Universal Studios, international museums.

So many opportunities to  our legitimate IPA members. Many companies offer members of the media free admission and access to their properties.

Not only for our IPA members, but in some cases passes for family members too.

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.

In New York, you can find a list of all the FREE Museums here.  Remember, some may ask for a donation, with your IPA Press ID, this is not required.


Example:  Disney Courtesy Passes


The Public Relations courtesy ticket policy is designed for business purposes to give working journalists an opportunity to experience and cover the Walt Disney World Resort.  

All media affiliations must be verifiable as to editorial content and/or masthead. 

Qualifying positions include the following in these news-related categories: Social Media and Online Media: Bloggers, Freelance Writers, Editors affiliated with established news organizations or online publications Click here for more information

Membership at IPA is not only a wonderful way to enjoy the access and VIP privileges. Our goal is meant to help you gain access so you can take your images and write articles that may get published on our websites.  

 The best part of doing the work is that you will gain the credibility and exposure you need to show those that grant access to your work. In many cases, all of the companies offering these benefits want to see our websites and in some cases, also want to see your published work.

Silver and Gold Programs


New Silver Membership For Spouses, Friends, and Crew Members


We realized that our current membership levels were simply not addressing many potential member’s needs.  Some inquiries requested a companion or crew membership rate for a mate, travel companion, or crew member.  Perfect option for those that may not want, or need the full membership package.

So many opportunities for our members and family with our Press ID that enables you to gain access to events that require 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 being able to take a wife or husband to trade shows.  Our Press Access makes it possible to not only give you that access but also offers you many other opportunities. 

You can travel anywhere that may include press access to museums, bus tours, trade, and consumer shows and so much more. 

Many media outlets ask for a corporate rate for their staff when visiting hotels, attractions, museums and much more .  

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 for 1-2-3 years at new lower prices and take advantage of our Silver Membership Level now only $125 for the year and only $100 per year on our 3-year option.  This is the perfect option for your jr. staff or crew too.

Our Support Team, Your Goals, Friendship


 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 sites, then membership is for you.

Some members simply enjoy the things they love to do, writing, photography, or videography. They 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.

Our members attend and cover concerts, shows, attractions, cruises, travel resorts, trade shows, sporting events and so much more.  Just brows the articles on this site and our IMPress site and see the wonderful opportunities.

 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 forms, 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 member’s 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.
