The media accreditation process for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 is now open. This is an online process that can be followed by clicking on www.dnanetworks.co.in/iccwcaccreditation.
As part of the application process you will need to upload a jpeg photograph, a letter of approval/assignment from your editor and a jpeg or pdf version of a relevant piece of identification. As such, it will help you as you fill out your application to have those documents ready in advance to upload.
The closing date for applications is 15 November 2010.
· Given the large number of applicants expected, space for media will be limited. Only working journalists with specific assignments will be accredited to the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011. It is up to the relevant sports editors to limit the numbers of people applying from their specific organisations.
· Accreditation for the event does not guarantee access to a specific match. During the application stage it is necessary to indicate which matches you intend to cover. For popular fixtures a ticketing system will be in place. As in the past, there will be a re-accreditation process in place for the knock-out stages.
· Generally, a maximum of two individuals per organisation will be granted access to any one match. Again, this is purely a question of available space.
· For members of the travelling media requiring multiple-entry visas to Bangladesh, Sri Lanka or India, further information will be provided once your application has been approved.
· Freelance journalists must also supply a letter of assignment from the commissioning editor of a genuine media outlet that is registered with the relevant government information agency or department.
· Late applications cannot be entertained.
· Accreditation for the event is being looked after by an external agency. Therefore, all queries pertaining to media accreditation should be forwarded to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please do not reply to this email address.
· Broadcast rights-holders: All television rights-holders/official television broadcasters for ICC CWC 2011 should contact Sunil Manoharan from ESPN STAR Sports at email@example.com and all other rights-holders (radio and news access) should contact Simon Varney, ICC Media Rights and Broadcast Officer, at firstname.lastname@example.org, for details on accreditation process.
· Terms and conditions for attending this event in the role of media are available at the time of applying and must be accepted before your application can be processed.
