1. What is the TCA?
The Television Critics Association represents more than 220 journalists writing about television for print and online outlets in the United States and Canada.
2. Can I join the TCA?
Membership in the Television Critics Association is open to full-time TV writers at newspapers, magazines, trade publications, news wire services, news syndicates, and text-based Internet news organizations.
Applications are accepted twice a year. See Joining the Television Critics Association for more information.
3. What is TCA press tour?
The Television Critics Association exists to serve its membership of full-time TV critics, most of whom do not live near the entertainment capitals of Los Angeles and New York. The twice-yearly TCA press tour, then, represents an unparalleled opportunity to gain access to the people who make television. The reporting our members do at press tour creates story material year-round as well as valuable face-to-face contacts with network executives, producers and actors.
As such, we limit membership in the TCA to those journalists who can be served by this primary mission.
