transmediale 2015 + CTM.15 reserve the right to evaluate the applications individually for each festival and to deny requests. For example, an application for Dual Press Accreditation
may be changed to an accreditation for one of the festivals only, and applications to any of the three types of press accreditation may also be entirely denied.
