Requirements for Media Accreditation
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 organisation.

Independent broadcast or film production companies are required to provide a letter from a broadcast organisation or film distributor, which has committed to air or distribute the work.

Print media representatives are required to submit two bylined articles within the past four months and a copy of the publication.

Radio and TV media representatives are required 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 organisation.

Online media must meet the following requirements, in addition to those above:

  • The web publication must 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 of film and film festivals.
  • 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 relevant issues and must present copies of three recently published articles with their byline.

Freelance Journalists: Freelance journalists can only obtain accreditation for a specific event or time period. Freelance journalists, including photographers, must provide clear evidence they are on assignment from a specific news organisation or publication.
