To apply for credentials, the assigning editor/producer must fill out the following online application form. If you are a freelance journalist, you must be on assignment from a media outlet. Photographers must also be on assignment.
**Spec photography, portfolio photography, and personal website photography are not valid assignments**
We take your coverage plans into consideration when reviewing your application to cover Magnetic Fields and expect coverage to be insightful, informative and consistent with your stated coverage plan.
We also take into account the coverage the festival received in the past. We do not consider social media or a compilation of photos, videos or articles unrelated to the Magnetic Fields official programme as press coverage.
Please note the following: ONE designated point person in your media outlet should complete this application for ALL personnel wishing to cover the event on behalf of the outlet. Individual attendees should be listed within that single application.
Requests for accreditation will only be considered if submitted via this official online process with the online application form completed accordingly.
**Application requests sent by email will not be accepted**
The assigning Editor/Producer MUST provide a letter of assignment on behalf of each individual journalist/photographer on company letterhead, stating a description of the outlet, the name of the journalist(s) assigned to attend and the scope of the coverage.
If you are submitting multiple attendees, you only need to write one letter of assignment, that lists coverage details for each individual on one overarching document.
Only actively covering, legitimate media will be considered for credentials.
Press Credential Applications should be filled out as soon as possible, and no later than Tuesday 01 November. No Applications will be considered after this date, and walk-up requests will not be granted.
Your application is not considered complete until receipt of your letter of assignment. Please upload your letter of assignment alongside this application.
If your application has been approved, you will be informed via email.
