International media wishing to attend the Baku 2019 XV Summer European Youth Olympic Festival will need to apply for a visa via the online E-Visa portal (www.evisa.gov.az).

There are three categories of accreditation for Media.  You must select which category best describes the role that you will have during the Games.  Please note that your accreditation category dictates what you are able to do … for example, persons accredited as “E” will not be able to work as a photographer and access photo positions. Recognizing that press are nowadays frequently multi-tasking at sports events, accredited press representatives will be able to request a ‘Multi’ bib at a venue if they need take photographs or take moving images in the Mixed Zone on an ad hoc basis.

E

​• For written press working as a journalist, editor, digital journalist, freelance journalist, or photo editor. 

• Must be employed by an international or national news agency; a general newspaper or magazine; a sports newspaper or magazine; or an internet site.  Freelance journalists must be on assignment and submit a letter confirming their assignment.

• “E” accreditation does NOT allow access to Photo Positions or allow a person to work as a photographer.

EP

​• For photographers and technicians.

• Must be employed by an international or national news agency; a general newspaper or magazine; a sports newspaper or magazine; or an internet site.  Freelance photographers must be on assignment and submit a letter confirming their assignment.

• “EP” accreditation allows access to Photo Positions

• Must sign “Photographer’s Undertaking” agreement to receive a photo bib.

• For those who are planning to work both as a photographer and a journalist, they are recommended to select EP category while applying

ENR

For TV cameramen only.  ENR accreditation should be only requested for the person using the broadcast equipment; other staff from the organisation should request “E” or “EP” accreditation.

Must be employed by an international or national television company.  

• “ENR” accreditation allows a cameraman to film in Mixed Zones, common domain areas (both inside the fence line and within venue building). Does NOT allow access to Photo Positions. Access to Press Tribunes is only permitted without camera equipment.

Must sign “ENR Undertaking” agreement, which includes agreement to abide filming rules, to wear an ENR bib when filming in the Mixed Zones, and to display EYOF Baku 2019 sticker on camera equipment.  Non-stickered equipment cannot enter venues.  

MULTI

Bibs (not category)

 

Ex: If any press representative accredited under “E” category wants to take photo or film in the Mixed-Zone, he/she will be able to request “Multi” bib to operate both as a journalist and photographer/cameraman.

Multi bibs will only be distributed from Venue Media Centres.

Multi bibs must be returned at the end of daily operations

NOTE:  Publishers, advertising agents, athlete agents, public relations agents, marketing agents or promotions agents are NOT eligible for press accreditation for the Games.

NOTE:  Lost, damaged or stolen accreditation cards must be reported to the Accreditation Centre immediately.
