Media Accreditation

Application Information

Media Accreditation is intended for editorial, film and photographic journalists covering stories at the festival.  It is not intended for promotional or marketing staff from media outlets. While all accreditation requests will be considered, the WOMAD communications team reserves the right to deny accreditation requests that do not fit the media accreditation criteria.

Please note successful applicants are dependant on pre-festival publicity.

Freelance Journalists / Photographers must attach a letter to their submission signed by their Editor/Client confirming their status as a supplier to that media organisation and the stories they will be sourcing.

Media welcome & briefing, including a short performance and photo opportunity with selected artists, will be scheduled for Friday 17 March at 2pm.  It is important you attend this briefing.  Failure to attend will revoke applicants credentials unless prior arrangement has been made with the publicist.

For health, safety and insurance reasons ALL media wishing to attend and cover the WOMAD festival must fill out an application

Applications close Friday 20 January 2017 - Please submit your application ASAP

You will be notified of approval within three weeks of submitting.  Any queries should be directed to: Lisa Paris  027 4318 459 or 09 631 5086.  Email - [email protected]

Due to insurance constraints, media credentials are very limited and available only to qualified applicants. Media credentials will be issued only to recognised or approved journalists representing verified websites, news services, websites, publications, newspapers, television networks, radio networks, local television stations, and other approved media outlets. Not all qualified applicants will obtain media passes and this will be at the discretion of the WOMAD communications team.
