Media Credentials Selection Criteria – Please Read Thoroughly and Carefully
The Summit appreciates media cooperation in keeping attending staff to the absolute minimum necessary to cover events. Only media outlets and photo agencies will be credentialed. The assigning editor must make requests for freelancers or non-staff employees on the credentials form.
Consideration for media credentials will be based upon a number of elements:
1. Verifiable circulation, unique visitors, viewer or listenership statistics, demographic and geographic saturation, etc.
2. The outlet’s demonstrated willingness to abide by established rules during previous years.
3. The extent of previous coverage specific to NMAC.
4. For outlets requesting credentials for the first time, the extent of previous coverage of other similar events and venues
Items 3 and 4 will be determined subjectively based on information you provide to Summit staff.
Credential applications are evaluated each year. Being credentialed in the past does not guarantee you will be credentialed again. We will to accommodate as many media outlets as possible. Your valid ID and business card will need to be presented in order to pick up your credential onsite.
