Media accreditation is strictly reserved for members of the press - print, photo, radio, TV, film, news agencies and online media - who represent a bona fide media organization.
Accreditation will be granted upon presentation of valid press credentials including:
Completed accreditation form
Photocopy of a valid press card/work pass
Please submit your press registration to the conference secretariat.
Independent broadcast or film production companies are required to provide a letter from a broadcast organization or film distributor which has committed to air or distribute the work.
Print media representatives may be required to submit two bylined articles within the past four months and a copy of the publication.
Radio and TV media representatives may be asked to submit two recordings of reports within the past four months.
Photographers are required to submit original tear sheets or photos with credits of the issuing organization.
Online media must meet the following requirements, in addition to those above:
The web publication must belong to a registered company, such as a media organization, and have a specific, verifiable non-web address and a telephone number.
The online journal requesting accreditation for its correspondent must have a substantial amount of original news content or commentary or analysis on international issues.
If the web site is new, the applicant seeking accreditation must provide the latest data on the site's visitors or other relevant material (press citations, etc.) about the outlet's audience. The applicant must have an established record of having written extensively on international issues and must present copies of three recently published articles with his/her byline.
Note that online publications which are communications outreach or advocacy publications of non-governmental or non-profit organizations do not qualify for media accreditation.
Freelance Journalists: Freelance journalists, including photographers, must provide clear evidence they are on assignment from a specific news organization or publication. A valid assignment letter from that news organization, or publication, is required.
