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:
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 or from the UN partner organization that supports the production.
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:
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.
Double Accreditation: It should be noted that no double accreditation is allowed (e.g. as press and vendor, or as press and artiste).
