Who may apply for credentials?
Media credentials are issued to working journalists and photographers from legitimate and recognized news outlets. This includes: newspapers, magazines, news services, track and field publications, television and radio and college SID’s, and the websites affiliated with these outlets.
Internet-only sites will only be considered and approved if they regularly report on sports, track & field, or related news. Preference is given to online media outlets with a demonstrated audience and a history of event-based coverage of track and field and in-depth profiles. Enthusiast and fan websites and general-interest or personal blogs will not be approved for a media credential.
Freelancers must provide a documentation of assignment from a legitimate and recognized news outlet.
What are some reasons for denying a request?
There are a limited number of credentials available. Some reasons for denying a request include: the application is incomplete, is not from an approved media outlet, or too many individuals have applied from a single outlet. Media credentials will be denied to individuals not fitting the criteria of “working press” as identified above.
