Editors of publishing houses, agencies and websites are asked to adhere to the following principles to ensure media accreditation is limited to professional journalists and photographers:

  • the Rally Organizer considers the Media pass as a working tool that can only be used by bona fide media representatives. Publishers, marketing department employees, freelance editors, assistant editors, secretariat employees and other personnel not directly involved in the production of information content cannot be accredited as media representatives.
  • DAILY PRESS ACCREDITATION is for professional independent editorial content / news coverage only. It may not be used for any other purpose, including, but not limited to, advertising, commercial, or entertainment purposes.

The number of daily press accreditations for one media outlet is limited:

  • for television channels – no more than 5 people (including the film crew and technical personnel, such as a sound engineer, video engineer, lighting designer),
  • for radio, print, online mediano more than 2 people.

A journalist using DAILY PRESS ACCREDITATION can be accredited for no more than 3 (three) rally stages.

The rally stage is:

  • The Administrative Checks and the Ceremonial Start (start podium).
  • Any stage bivouac.
  • The final stage and the Ceremonial Finish (finish podium).

A request for daily accreditation for the start and/or finish and/or bivouac along the rally route must be accompanied by a letter from the editor-in-chief of the media indicating the preliminary plan for publications about the rally and the media output. In addition, recent evidence of publications of the journalist or photographer must be provided in accordance with the accreditation principles outlined above.

A request for daily accreditation must be accompanied by a copy of a valid press card and/or editorial ID.

The application may be rejected by the decision of the Rally Organizers if it does not contain the above data, or the data is not confirmed by verification in publicly available sources. Confirmation of acceptance of the application for accreditation will be sent after reviewing the specified data on the media coverage and at least one day before the selected date of visiting the bivouac to the email address provided.

The confirmation letter will contain detailed information about the address and opening hours of the Media Center in the cities where the rally bivouacs are located, the procedure for obtaining an individual identification QR code, a bracelet with the date of admission and a vest.
