Credential Guidelines

Who may apply for credentials?

Approval of media credentials is solely at the discretion of USATF. Media credentials may be 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, and credentialing is solely at the discretion of USATF. Some reasons for denying a request may 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.
