The Media Accreditation process for EuroBasket 2013 in Slovenia, September 4-22, is now open.
In order to be considered for EuroBasket 2013 Media credentials, you must represent a bona fide media organisation that produces and publishes original content.
Applications for media credentials by club representatives; agents; book or educational booklet authors; fan bloggers; or media that do not produce original content based on the general news gathering criteria will not be considered.
Freelancers (writers, photographers and videographers) may be asked to prove that they are on assignment with a media outlet in order to be considered for credentials.
Credentials will be awarded on the basis of the professional history of the applying media, relevance to the event and basketball in general, and space availability in the different venues.
Procedure: Media individuals and organisations wishing to apply for credentials will have to do so through FIBA Europe's Media Centre (http://media.fibaeurope.com). Those media that do not already have a profile with the Media Centre will need to first create one before completing the application.
Creating a profile or logging on to a previous existing account is not an application in itself; applicants are required to complete all steps.
All accreditation applications will have to be approved by FIBA Europe; by completing the form you are NOT automatically guaranteed accreditation.
Photo ID: A valid, electronic version of a portrait photo (headshot) of the applicant must be uploaded during the procedure. This is a requirement and applications that do not include a valid photo will not be processed.
Corporate users: All organisations that need to apply for a big number of accreditations (e.g. TV rights-holders) need to send an email to email@example.com requesting the set up a corporate user's account or the activation of their account for the upcoming event (for already registered users).
Deadline: The deadline for submitting applications is April 30.
Accommodation: The Slovenian Local Organising Committee offers Media Accomodation in selected hotels. More details of how to apply for media accommodation can be found during the application process.
Help: If you require further assistance please contact the Media Dept. of FIBA Europe firstname.lastname@example.org.
The allocation of media accreditations is the responsibility of FIBA Europe in cooperation with the Local Organising Committee of EuroBasket 2013.
