Media Accreditation Guidelines​

​​Media must be accredited in order to register to participate in an ITU event. Media accreditation is strictly reserved for members of the press who represent a 
bona fide media organization.

​​Media accreditation is not granted to non-editorial staff working for a publishing house (e.g. management, marketing, advertising executives, etc.), researchers, authors or editors of directories. Media accreditation is not granted to the information outlets of governments, non-governmental organizations or private companies that are not first and foremost media organizations. Applications for accreditation are considered on a case-by-case basis and we reserve the right to request supplementary documentary evidence. 
​​​The final decision on all applications for media accreditation rests with ITU. Any queries concerning the accreditation process should be directed to
