The green verified badge on Muck Rack lets people know that a profile page meets Muck Rack’s criteria to be defined as a verified journalist, and that the information is maintained by Muck Rack’s Editorial team. It also gives you unlimited access to some of Muck Rack’s more powerful tools.

Anyone can create a Muck Rack profile and portfolio but not every profile will be verified. To get started, login to your existing account or create a new one and submit your verification request.

There are many ways to make your profile more complete and easier to discover. Though not required, we recommend:

Each request and account is verified by actual humans, and all decisions are made at our discretion.

If you're not verified, you can still enjoy Muck Rack's free tools:

  • A portfolio tool to showcase your best work

  • Share a detailed biography and specify the topics you cover (or don’t)

  • Make updates to your page as your career progresses
