The process of accepting the accreditation applications for journalists, photojournalists and TV operators is terminating. Applications can be send by Tuesday, March 19.
All media representatives who have not yet applied for accreditation and would like to receive it, please complete the attached accreditation form and send it by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org by March 19th. Sending the application is not tantamount to its accepting. We send the decision via e-mail.
Generally, accredited journalists will have free access to most of the places where the competition is planned: main Arena, short throw arena – shot put and weight throw, stadium – long throws, as well as surroundings of places where cross-country, street and walk races are planned. The exception is the infield zone – the zone surrounded by a circular track in the Arena Toruń, where 60m and 60m hurdles, long jump, triple jump, as well as for high jump will take place. Because of the small space and the large number of athletes and judges staying in it, and because of the priority, which is the need to smoothly conduct sports competitions, access to the infield for media must be very limited. Permanent access to this zone will have only photojournalists and TV operators working for the organizer, as well as just two photojournalists working for large news agencies. In addition, we will have two vests that will be issued to photojournalists temporarily for change, rotationally.
In addition, people will be under the supervision of our trained volunteers and security services. Temporary access to the infield zone will be issued only to photojournalists with professional photographic equipment, that will be able to proof that they indeed work as a photojournalists. All accredited journalists and photojournalists will be able to stay in the zones available to them. There will be ability to take pictures in the hall, in so-called ring (the zone directly next to the circular track, on its outside).In addition, the media will have the permanent access to the stands, a television wall and specially prepared places to work on computers. We provide a permanent Internet access. At the end of each day, we as a press team will be preparing an official report, a summary with a few photos from our photojournalists. These relations will be sent to all interested editors and national federations. In addition, national federations may apply to us to provide photos of competitors that they are particularly interested in. We can also provide such photos by our photojournalists.
